Clinical experience is the centerpiece of all IWU Graduate Counseling programs. Skill-building under the careful supervision of experienced faculty begins in the first semester of study, continues into on-site practicums, and culminates with community-based internships.
Live supervision and the digital recording of sessions enable clinical training to be tailored to address the specific needs and strengths of the counseling trainee. The division is home to the Graduate Counseling Clinics, state-of-the-art facilities that offer counseling services to the Marion and Indianapolis communities. By serving in these clinics, students are guaranteed to deliver a level of service that is in alignment with diverse populations presenting issues typical of community and university service delivery systems.
Rob Atchison, Director of Clinical Training
Ph.D., M.A., LMFT, NCC, AAMFT- Approved Supervisor
My experience in the counseling field as taken me on a journey as a therapist, clinical supervisor, and regional supervisor of a nationally recognized in-home counseling agency, which works with families at risk of children being removed from the home. With this program I worked with a team to initiate six offices across Southern Indiana.
My clinical focus has primarily been with families with kids at-risk of being removed from the home due to a variety of life challenges.
I have a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision with a Specialization in Trauma and Crisis from Walden University.
As the Director of Clinical Training, I oversee the Practicum and Internship programs for each of the counseling specializations and manage the day-to-day operations for the Graduate Counseling Clinics in Marion and Indianapolis.
Apart from my professional role, I enjoy spending time with my family and taking time for hobbies.
