Interviews are usually scheduled on either a Thursday or Friday during the first or second week in January and will take place in virtual format via Zoom Video Communications ("Zoom"). The Interview Day format includes an introduction, welcome, and program overview with the training director; individual interviews with two supervisors and one current intern; and opportunities for informal interviews/conversations with supervisors and current interns. Applicants are invited to interview with specified PSC programs (e.g., CATSP, TRIP, NCCOA, or SPACI). Please specify which of these are of most interest in your cover letter (you many indicate any number that are of interest).
The NSU Psychology Services Center (PSC) internship program is an APA accredited training program. The Psychology Services Center, formerly known as the CMHC, provides services on a sliding scale fee for service basis to the diverse South Florida community. We provide training in assessment and psychotherapy with children, adolescents, and adults with a wide range of presenting problems in a culturally competent manner. Interns spend 25% of their time working within the Children, Adolescents and Families (CAFS) program and 25% within the Adult Services Program (ASP). The other half of the interns' time is spent in one of four programs, to which the intern matches: Trauma Resolution Integration Program (TRIP), Child & Adolescent Traumatic Stress Program (CATSP), the NSU Counseling Center for Older Adults (NCCOA) or the School-related Psychological Assessments and Clinical Interventions (SPACI). In addition, interns supervise practicum students under the supervision of a licensed psychologist, teach a pre-practicum course for first-year psychology doctoral students during the Winter semester, and attend weekly didactic activities to round out their generalist training. Interns will have the opportunity to provide clinical services via telehealth, and all other relevant training and teaching activities can also be offered in a virtual or hybrid/blended format if that continues to be necessitated by CDC and Florida Department of Health guidelines.
