FACT (Family and child treatment)



FACT has also worked closely with University of Phoenix Master’s level students to provide comprehensive training opportunities. Working under the supervision of a licensed psychologist and social worker, the purpose of the internship program is to provide a broad range of clinical, theoretical and training experiences for students and interns to equip them for a broad range of professional roles and opportunities, including private practice, counseling, hospital jobs or even administrative and leadership positions.

The goal is to challenge students to think deeply about the profession of counseling and to assist them in developing a broad understanding of human behavior and effective interventions for lasting change. FACT is unique in terms of its commitment to students and their training and the willingness to invest in the future of the therapeutic community in Las Vegas.

FACT has been in the Las Vegas community for over 26 years and during that time it has evolved into a premiere training site for students and interns seeking licensure. FACT has developed partnerships with the UNLV social work, education and marriage and family therapist programs over the years and, more recently, has developed collaboration with the UNLV Doctoral Clinical Psychology program.
