Salesmanship Club Youth and Family Center Rotation

The Salesmanship Club of Dallas, Inc. (SCD) is a not-for-profit civic service organization of business professionals dedicated to improving the future of children and their families. SCD raises funds to support the charitable work of the Salesmanship Club Youth and Family Centers, Inc., an independent, not-for-profit human service agency with a community school and a family center. 

Training Program Goals

The goals of this rotation are to:

  • Broaden knowledge of family therapy models based on systemic and interaction concepts
  • Promote reflective habits that enable fellows to evaluate how their own assumptions influence their actions
  • Sensitize and enhance the fellow's knowledge and skills in working with clients of diverse SES, racial, and cultural backgrounds

Fellows see families and groups in both the first and second year of training. Fellows will participate in a discussion of readings or other clinical material and participate in clinical teams. As a team member, each fellow will rotate between being the primary therapist and observing team member.

Fellows can work with individuals, couples, and families with a variety of concerns and from diverse backgrounds. They work as primary therapists with clients while joining with other fellows/residents/staff to form teams that provide a context for learning and collaboration around therapy. The staff encourages a collaborative context for learning and invites informal and formal feedback about training, supervision, and other aspects of our organization.

Requirements for good standing include compliance with all weekly training activities, including provision of clinical services, and successfully meeting the expected outcomes for each training objective.
