"Family Continuity is proud to have established and maintained a partnership with Assumption College to work collaboratively with their Graduate School’s Clinical Counseling Psychology students. Many Assumption College graduates transition their internship directly into employment opportunities with our agency. In some instances, students who express an interest in continuing with Family Continuity past their graduation will begin to build a caseload so that they can begin their employment immediately upon completion of their Master’s level, clinical counseling psychology program. Through our years of collaboration, we have found that Assumption College students have been well educated to provide treatment interventions to the people Family Continuity serves with great efficacy."
