List of some COUN 239 placement sites. This list is NOT exhaustive by any means; just because a site is on this list doesn't mean that it is taking trainees at this time, or that is still in business. This list implies no guarantee of a placement. If you know of a site that should be on the list, please let Dan Smith know . . . and it will be included, perhaps.

If you have looked at this page in the past, you'll notice something missing. Originally, there was a detailed sheet for each placement. It was removed because keeping up with changes in these agencies became onerous, and perhaps miselading. So, they're gone.

PLEASE NOTE: Per CUSF Risk Management, no student may work in a non-contracted agency; the contact specifies liability limitations between the University and the agency. We typically initiate a NEW contract with each placement although contracts have a 5-year lifespan -- this makes recordkeeping much easier. Placements within Fresno State or under university sponsorship DO NOT require a contract.
