J-1 Visa (Internship) For Social Work in US

Hi All,

I have been looking for answers about a J-1 Visa. Just recently my girlfriend started looking for an internship in Social Work in San Diego. We have contacted some agencies about it and they said it is impossible to get an internship and a J-1 visa for social work in the states...

Has anyone ever done counseling or social work in the US using any type of Visa?

There are a few limitations that say you are not allowed to work in Childcare, Eldercare, and work with medical patients....

However, they say that you can work in these range of fields...
Education, Social Science, Library Science, Counseling and Social Services

Does anyone have any experience with this???

Interns cannot work in unskilled or casual labor positions, in positions that require or involve childcare or elder care or in any kind of position that involves medical patient care or contact. Nor can interns work in positions that require more than 20 percent clerical or office support work.
