Chesapeake Life Center serves as a placement site for advanced level graduate students in counseling and social work. We also offer opportunities to fellows and doctoral candidates completing counseling hours toward licensure or who are doing research in areas of grief or palliative care. These students and fellows are an integral part of our team, providing bereavement counseling, facilitating support groups and assisting with grief workshops. Weekly supervision is provided by LCSW-C and LCPC professionals in coordination with each school's Director of Clinical Education and faculty supervisor.
To be considered, an application must be submitted and the student or fellow must be in good standing with his/her institution of higher learning. Prior counseling experience and an interest in grief and loss are preferred. All candidates meeting criteria will be selected for an interview. The interview process both educates prospective interns about our Center and guides our staff in learning about the student's interests, goals and experience level. Once a student is selected, he or she will receive an acceptance letter and the date for orientation. All interns and fellows must complete the Hospice of the Chesapeake's orientation requirements as well as the orientation and training specific to Chesapeake Life Center and counseling.

Wow -- being an intern at the Life Center has really been a surreal experience. I’m almost speechless in finding the right words to express how thankful I am, for the constant learning opportunities, the care and support of staff, and the overall general nurturing, team environment. I would never believe that I could get this much out of an internship, over the course of 8 months. Truly life changing. Thank you, CLC. -intern 2013-2014
My supervision experience at TLC has met and exceeded any expectations I had for my first field placement. - intern 2011-2012
