The WellSpan Philhaven Hospital Doctoral Psychology Internship Program is part of a multidisciplinary psychiatric behavioral health organization, affiliated with a larger healthcare system, WellSpan Health. WellSpan Philhaven has multiple programs including inpatient, day hospital, triage, outpatient, residential, and several community-based treatment programs. The population includes children, adolescents, and adults from urban, suburban and rural areas. Clients represent many ethnic and religious groups and all socio-economic classes. The program emphasizes profession-wide competencies in psychology practice. A unique feature of the program is the opportunity for interns to explore ways to integrate religion and spirituality into clinical practice to best serve clientele in our practice area. There are two internship tracks-General Track: 3 positions; Child/Adolescent Specialty Track: 1 position. The General track includes 2 adult rotations and 1 child/adolescent rotation. The Child/Adolescent track intern is trained in child/adolescent programs all year. Assessment, consultation, individual and group therapy, and couples/family therapy are part of the program. See program handbook for additional information. Handbook can be viewed on our website, at www.wellspanphilhaven.org.
