The Haymount Institute has two tracks for intern training.  The code number and number of slots available are as follows:

Code Description Quota
209411 GENERAL TESTING TRACK 3
209412 ASD TRACK 1

GENERAL SITE DESCRIPTION

The Haymount Institute for Psychological Assessment is an outpatient private clinic serving children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families in a community setting. Our client population includes the diverse demographic mix of individuals from Cumberland, Hoke, and surrounding counties in North Carolina.Our services are provided by a culturally and professionally diverse staff of psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical therapists, substance abuse specialists and holistic health providers. Our clinicians represent a range of psychological and treatment perspectives including systemic, cognitive-behavioral, biological, developmental, and psychodynamic. Having this diversity of perspective increases our ability to understand clients in an integrated manner. Services provided include individual and group therapy, psychological assessment, substance abuse counseling, and medication management. The Haymount Institute for Psychological Assessment will provide a minimum of two hours per week of didactic training on various areas of clinical practice to include ethical and legal issues commonly encountered in private practice, psychological assessment, diversity issues, marital and family systems issues, school and community based intervention, and training in various intervention approaches. In addition to the didactic training, ongoing training and supervision will be provided in the administration, scoring, interpreting, report writing, delivery of results, and consultation throughout the year. Interns will also receive a minimum of two hours per week of formal supervision from a licensed doctoral level psychologist affiliated with this agency.The training in psychological assessment is of primary focus, and interns will learn how to provide ongoing consultation to various agencies tasked with a client care. Regardless of the selected track, all interns will have exposure to all aspects of training described above.  It is anticipated that by the end of the internship year, interns will have completed 40-50 integrated psychological reports.

GENERAL TESTING TRACK

The general testing track provides broad spectrum exposure to a variety of mental health conditions, ranging from individuals with Intellectual Disabilities, Learning Disorders, ADHD, Mood Disorders, Psychotic Disorders, Personality Disorders, etc.  Testing cases include disability determination, vocational rehabilitation, evaluations for the development of behavior plans, EAP, fitness for duty, forensic evaluations, and many other referral questions requested by local providers.

ASD TRACK

The Haymount ASD clinic is a more specialized component of the Haymount Institute for Psychological Assessment focusing on the evaluation and treatment of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Although testing opportunities will inadvertently include those listed under the General Testing Track, the primary focus will be on the development of competence in dealing with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.  Interns interested in this track should have a strong interest in working with individuals with ASD.

Opportunities for interns to provide individual psychotherapy  are very limited though formal didactic training on evidence-based intervention strategies will be provided.  Interns are required to co-facilitate group therapy with a licensed provider.  Due to the close proximity to a military installation, many patients come from a diverse background, and many are Spanish speaking.  Additionally, there are many opportunities to work with rural populations, Native Americans, and other ethnic minorities.  In addition, a large part of the training will include discussion about how to start-up and run a private practice. 

Additional information about training opportunities: Not all rotations or training experiences may be available as described in the APPIC Directory. Please consult the program's application materials or their website at: www.haymountinstitute.com  for a complete description of the training opportunities available at this training site. IF the site has not updated their information by August 1, feel free to contact the Training Director for additional information.
