Palos Behavioral Health Professionals primarily is a child/adolescent- and family-driven practice. We currently combine the knowledge and expertise of more than 15 clinical staff to offer individual, couples, family, and group therapies. We also offer psychological assessment, psychiatry services, and psychoneurotherapy services. Many of our referrals come from primary care physicians, local school districts, other mental health/medical providers, and as recommendations from other patients. We treat a diverse range of patients in terms of age, diagnosis, and severity.
Our APA-accredited clinical psychology doctoral internship is a significant component in the development of exceptional and independently functioning clinical psychologists. Our internship, based upon the Practitioner-Scholar training model, provides a challenging combination of experiences, offering interns both breadth and depth in their training that is rooted in a balance between theoretical orientation, empirically-based methods, and our staff’s wealth of clinical experience. Through exposure to various theoretical orientations, clinical experiences, and feedback from clinicians within the practice, interns learn and develop proficiency in core clinical and professional competencies, treat a broad range of clinical presentations as a provider and member of a team, and develop their own clinical psychology identity. Training includes clinical exposure, supervision, didactic training, theoretical exploration and development, and consultations with multiple members of the clinical team.
