Program Description

The Goodman Psychological Services Center Internship program in Miami, Florida is now a Consortium and has a new training track with Camillus House & Health Inc. There are 8 full-time intern slots available. Six Interns will train at the Goodman Center and two interns will train at Camillus House. All 8 Interns attend weekly didactic trainings, as well as group supervision at the Goodman Center.

The Goodman Center is a private, nonprofit community mental health agency, whose sponsoring agency is Carlos Albizu University, and began providing mental health services since 1980 to a predominantly multi-culturally diverse, and underserved population. For Interns training at the Goodman Center, they will be engaged in an array of psychological services to include psychological assessments and interventions to children, adolescents, and adults. Interventions include individual psychotherapy (ages 5 and up), marital/couple and family therapy, and group psychotherapy in specialized topic areas (i.e., Parenting Skills Training). Psychological assessments include both psycho-educational and psychological evaluations (measures include intelligence, achievement, process, personality, and neuropsychological tests, and other specialized evaluations). The Goodman Center internship program offers interns a range of experiences upon which to build their theoretical and applied clinical skills. Our aim is to prepare Interns for general practice in clinical psychology as informed by scholarly inquiry with a thorough grounding in psychological theory, assessment, diagnosis, intervention, and consultation. These include opportunities to work with culturally diverse patients representing a broad spectrum of psychopathology, conduct diagnostic evaluations and learn a variety of treatment approaches to include evidence based practices. Psychology Doctoral interns typically engage in various forms of psychotherapy, psycho-diagnostic evaluations and consultation. Seminars and didactic trainings enhance developing skills while Interns simulataneously serve as mentors to practicum students.

The training track at Camillus House & Health Inc., a non-profit organization in Miami-Dade County, offers comprehensive health care, behavioral health, substance abuse treatment and social services to the homeless and indigent residents in the community. Interns will have the opportunity to work with this population in either the residential, substance abuse and co-morbid disorder treatment program or in the outpatient mental health treatment unit. Camillus House & Health has grown over the past 55+ years into a comprehensive system of care, providing emergency housing, behavioral health treatment, supported transitional and permanent housing, employment training assistance and emergency services including food, shelter, primary health and dental services. Camillus House & Health is the largest self-contained system of care specifically designed to address the needs of person who are homeless in Miami-Dade county.
