Program Description

Our mission is to provide quality training, necessary to facilitate the transitional process from graduate student to an independently practicing psychologist. Our training Model is the Practitioner-Scholar Model, which emphasizes service delivery based on the integration of scientific principles, research, clinical judgment, and client values. Training is designed to provide a supervised and supportive learning environment in which interns continue to develop and refine their skills and abilities in various competency areas and gradually assume increased clinical responsibility. Interns are encouraged and supported in cultivating their own professional style as they progress toward the role of an autonomous psychologist.
