Interview process description:

We conduct phone/Zoom interviews during the months of December and January. The inteviews last 45-50 minutes, typically includes responding to at least 1 vignette and then other questions that help us assess the fit between the applicant's goals for the year and what we have to offer. There are usually 8-10 questions and then time at the end for applicants to ask us questions. The interview team typically consists of the training director, a current intern, a postdoctoral fellow, and a senior staff clinician.

Applicants are welcome to visit (if it is safe to do so) and we do not privilege applicants who visit over those that do not. In fact, more often than not we have matched with applicants who have not visited (or met wtih the training director). That is, there is no advantage to visiting or talking directly with the training director. If you would like to visit - if seeing the site and/or meeting with the training director will help you in your decision making - you are more than welcome and we will do our best to accommodate your schedule.

Program Description

Our internship training program is committed to providing comprehensive training experiences which will foster interns' professional development and personal growth. One of our major goals is to help interns consolidate their clinical and consultation skills into their professional identities as psychologists. In order to facilitate these goals, intensive supervision, seminars, case conferences, and opportunities for consultation with senior staff are provided. The full-time, twelve-month internship provides interns with training in the specific areas of crisis assessment and intervention, brief counseling for personal and career concerns, workshop facilitation, supervision, and consultation and outreach to the campus community. A major focus of the internship is to develop interns' multicultural awareness, sensitivity and competence. Interns have the opportunity to work with a rich diversity of students who have a broad range of presenting concerns and problems. Senior staff are a multicultural, multidisciplinary group of professionals (social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists) who work from a variety of theoretical orientations. Staff are actively involved in training and exceptionally committed to the growth and development of all of our trainees. As part of the University Health Services, CAPS staff and interns interact with medical professionals to provide coordinated care for Berkeley students.
