Interns provide a broad range of treatment services at our outpatient clinic, including play therapy, individual psychotherapy, family psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, couples therapy, and parent guidance services, as well as conduct comprehensive diagnostic evaluations incorporating psychological, neuropsychological, and developmental facets of assessment. On a weekly basis, interns assume leadership roles in our intake department, as well as participate in therapy supervision, diagnostic supervision, group supervision, and didactic and experiential seminars that include rotating clinical topics, case presentations, and trainings emphasizing the integration of professional literature and clinical practice. SVPS also offers specialized programming, in which interns are encouraged to engage, including: Developmental & Special Needs Services, Adopt-Adapt-Attach, and School & Community Enrichment. Please note that SVPS specifically offers formal training from a dynamic lens, with a particular emphasis on attachment-based approaches.
