We are recruiting 3 postdoctoral positions, including one in each of these tracks: General Child track (Child), Autism-Spectrum Disorder concentration within the Child track (ASD), and Adult track (Adult).
The University of Michigan Mary A. Rackham Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Program is designed to provide advanced training in professional psychology to qualified postdoctoral psychologists. Training is based in either the Psychological Clinic, a multidisciplinary training-focused adult outpatient center, or the University Center for the Child and Family, a comparable clinic serving children, adolescents and families. Both clinics have a welcoming and supportive atmosphere, and offer a hybrid office model working part time onsite and part time virtually. The training prepares fellows for licensure in the State of Michigan (or any other state with similar requirements) through a one year full time program that provides robust, advanced training in many key professional competencies (two year option is available by mutual consent). These competencies include assessment and diagnosis, psychological testing, intervention including individual and group therapy (also family therapy in the child clinic and couples therapy in both clinics), consultation and interdisciplinary collaboration, multicultural competencies, clinical teaching and supervision, professionalism, ethical and legal standards, and leadership/administrative skills. These competencies are enhanced through direct clinical service with supervision from expert clinicians, participation in seminars and clinical meetings and conferences, consultation with other professionals outside the Clinic, teaching of seminars to psychology interns and social work students, supervision of clinical work conducted by junior social work and psychology students, and participation in senior staff meetings. ASD-concentrations can include training in both ASD diagnostic evaluations and intervention (psychotherapy, onsite or in-home/in-school ABA) with possibility of hours accrual toward BCBA licensure.
