What is Lehigh program
Lehigh University is a selective private research university in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and it¹s master¹s and doctoral programs in Counseling Psychology consistently rank among the top in the U.S. We are an approved practicum site for the program and are currently training four master¹s students who are in the 3rd and final year of their program in counseling psychology. Under the close supervision of a senior psychologist, Interns will see clients for individual counseling, group counseling, and community outreach.
The World Health Organization reported that Kuwait has a massive shortage of mental health providers. Given FSHN¹s focus on social justice and improving health care in Kuwait, we wanted to train local clinicians in counseling and psychotherapy with the ultimate goal of increasing the number of credentialed, multiculturally-competent clinicians.
-Increased number of credentialed providers who have a commitment to Kuwait.
-Clinicians are trained locally rather than abroad which means that they will have a better understanding of local cultures and the social structure of Kuwait.
-Allows FSHN to expand services to a greater number of people. Our Interns can conduct services in Arabic, English, Farsi, Hindi, Urdu, and Malayalam.
