     Agency
         Marion County Children's Advocacy Center, Inc., Kimberley's Cottage is part of a national trend
         towards child oriented and victim sensitive delivery of services to child v ictims of serious physical
         abuse and sexual abuse. We bring together professional and agencies to create a child -focused
         approach to child abuse investigation and treatment. The goal is to ensure that children are not
         re-vict imized by the very system designed to protect them. Partner agencies include the Marion County
          Sheriff's Office, Ocala Police Depart ment, State Attorney, University of Florida Child Protection Team,
         local mental health and other child services providers. Kimberley's Cottage provides counseling
         services to child victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and domestic violence at no cost to the child
         or the non-offending caregiver. Kimberley's Cottage also has two forensic (child friendly) interview
         rooms where the child's disclosure can be video-taped for use in the courts. We greatly increase the
         successful prosecution of offenders by this multi-disciplinary partnership approach. Ch ildren that are
         brought to Kimberly's Cottage range in age fro m 0 to 18, although successful forensic interviewing of
         the child depend on at least a verbal age of 2 or 3. In the calendar year 2003 there were over 4500 calls
         to the abuse hotline fro m Marion County affecting more than 9000 children. Students would be active
         in working with the abused children and their families involving counseling and referral for services
         fro m housing to clothing or mo re intensive counseling. We provide the first ten sessions free of charge
         and refer families to local service p roviders for long term counseling.

     Agency
         Student Mental Health Services (SM HS) is a department of the Student Health Care Center (SHCC) at

         University's commun ity in the development of their emot ional well being and achievement of
         educational goals. The primary function of the SMHS is to provide individual, couple, and group
         counseling to the University; population. Clients range in age fro m tradit ional age students to older
         students entering the academic arena or returning to school for additional degrees. The Un iversity
         population is a diverse population so that several programs of the SMHS are also designed to address
         the mult iple needs of our student population, including the Center for Sexual Assault/Abuse Recovery
         and Education (CA RE), the Eating Disorders Program the Mu lt i cultural Counseling program and the
         Alcohol and Substance Abuse program (ASAP). SMHS also provides outreach programs to campus
         residences, academic depart ments and administrative agencies on campus. The SMHS staff is
         mu lti-disciplined with psychologists, psychiatrist, psychiatric nurses, physicians, mental health
         counselors, social workers, and advanced graduate student trainees from Psychology, Counselor
         Education, Rehabilitation Counseling and Social Work.
     Special Pl acement
         The SMHS is located in the SHCC (Infirmary) on the U of F campus. Interns need to provide their own
         transportation to the site. Travel is not reimbursed by the agency, and unfortunately we do not have
         student stipends. Although an intern will be functioning und er the auspices of the SHCC< a decision
         regarding liability insurance is left to the intern. Cu rrently, the SM HS is not videotaping sessions but
         audio taping is encouraged. The SMHS is open fro m 8am - 5p m on weekdays and is open part-time on
         weekends. Interns are assigned office/clinical hours during weekdays from 8 -5. Weekends and evening
          hours are not possible for interns. Bus transportation is available to and fro m campus. Because interns
         generally work in the SM HS staff offices (when staff are not on campus), it is vital that interns be flexible
          in their availability. Currently, most interns at SMHS on Monday and Friday during the Fall and
         Spring Semesters. Generally, we do not provide internship during the summer semesters.
