Program Description

IPAPIC endeavors to join together training organizations in the state of Illinois to create opportunities for Illinois psychology Interns. An important mission of IPAPIC is to offer services to underserved communities. By linking agencies, IPAPIC is able to offer such services, since training and supervision responsibilities are shared by the consortium. NOTE: If you are a private/group practice or training program interested in joining the consortium, please contact any of our sites for more information. Currently, Center for Personal Growth (CPG), Genesis Therapy Center (GTC), Khalil Center (KC), LifeWorks Psychotherapy Center (LPC), and Psychological Consultations (PC) are consortium partners. During the training year, Interns will collaborate with other Interns in the consortium to participate in various learning activities, as well as an advocacy project with IPA. All programs offer excellent training opportunities in therapy, assessment, and supervision. To apply to one of the sites in the IPAPIC, please apply through the APPIC website and directory. The specific Site Program numbers are: CPG 215813, GTC 215816, KC 215812, LPC 215814, and PC 215811. For general information about the IPAPIC Consortium, please visit the website at IPAPIC.com.

The mission of the IPA Consortium is to offer quality psychology training in diverse settings to doctoral Interns in the state of Illinois, while also creating networks between Interns, agencies, IPA, and IPA members. At IPAPIC, Interns are given opportunities for professional development through involvement and mentorship with Illinois’ state association. Interns are supported and encouraged to engage in advocacy work, particularly through their involvement as a student member in the IPAPIC Board. Further, through a monthly 4-hour meeting, Interns are able to connect with peers from all the other tracks who are gaining Internship experiences from the diverse settings and treatment modalities including prison systems, community mental health, inpatient and residential settings, as well as group private practice. This meeting includes a 2-hour didactic followed by a 2-hour meeting with just the Intern cohort where they are encouraged to share and offer peer support to one another. This meeting is in an effort for the Intern cohort to become an ongoing peer support and consultation group for the Interns themselves.

In addition, IPAPIC tracks serve a wide range of clientele including LGBTQ, Muslim, and marginalized communities. During the quarterly IPAPIC Board meetings, Interns are encouraged to be involved in decision making and to provide a voice to the students’ perspective. Most track supervisors are exposed to and encouraged to participate in the state association’s government and many have held leadership positions within the Illinois Psychological Association. Interns have opportunities for close connections to mentors who have been in state leadership positions. Interns network directly and frequently with professionals from diverse settings at monthly and biannual consortium-wide meetings.
