Interview process description:

Interviews entail a half-day experience involving either a morning or afternoon session. The first part of the interview involves a 35-minute group interview with approximately four applicants. During the group interview, the selection committee (Center staff psychologists and the Clinical/Training Director) provide the candidates with a description of the important features of the internship training program. In addition, the group interview allows for the selection committee to evaluate all applicants through a series of structured and unstructured interview questions. Following the group interview, each applicant meets for two consecutive 30 minute individual interviews with two different members of the selection committee. During these individual interviews, applicants are questioned in more detail about their clinical experiences and skills. During these interviews, the applicants are also able to ask the interviewers questions about the program. After the individual interviews, the applicant has the opportunity to meet with current interns to ask questions and to learn about the internship in a more informal manner. Current interns also provide the candidates with a tour of the facility.

Program Description

An integral part of the Faulk Center for Counseling is the clinical training of future professionals. Formal training of psychologists has existed at the Center for over 30 years. The internship program offers interns intensive training in the areas of psychotherapy, assessment, and consultation. The Center offers a unique and intensive experience in which interns may develop their personal identities as psychologists. The Center embraces a humanistic, person-centered philosophy which is integral to all clinical services. However, interns are expected to study and practice modalities based on other theoretical orientations, such as psychodynamic, interpersonal,cognitive behavioral, and family systems therapy. At the Center, the intern works alongside clinical psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family counselors, and master's level students of all disciplines, as well trained volunteer facilitators. Each intern has the opportunity to work with a variety of populations and settings, which include residential facilities for seniors and public schools.
