An on-site interview is required. Interviews typically occur over the course of a day. Applicants will meet with the Director of Clinical Training, the Supervisor of Clinical Training, and the Chief Psychologist for individual interviews. Applicants will have the opportunity to meet with existing interns and post-docs to ask questions and to learn more about the site, as well as their experiences. Applicants will be required to participate in a case conceptualization during the interview process.
The internship in clinical psychology provides an array of opportunities to facilitate a diverse and unique training experience with the assessment, outpatient, and BHRS departments. Interns will have the opportunity to conduct full-battery psychological and psycho-educational assessments with a variety of populations including comprehensive Autism assessment batteries. Opportunities to conduct children and parent groups are also available. Interns will provide therapy in our outpatient setting to a variety of individuals experiencing a broad spectrum of mental health and/or substance use concerns. Interns will receive ongoing supervision and didactic seminars on empirically-supported treatment approaches with a focus on cognitive-behavioral therapy. Interns may also have the chance to assist with trainings and didactics to staff and medical professionals in order to gain teaching experience. Interns will gain valuable experience in assisting with the supervision/consultation of practicum students. Additionally, interns will work directly with clinical staff and administrators to develop and implement a quality improvement project.
