Brief description of the typical work day for an intern at this training site The doctoral interns have two (2) six month clinical rotations: Outpatient Psychotherapy and Primary Care Psychology (see below for rotation descriptions). A typical day would contain mostly direct client services in one of these rotations. Depending on the day, interns will also conduct psychological testing, attend seminars and/or participate in either individual or group supervision. The outpatient psychotherapy rotation offers psychotherapy, based primarily on a brief or short-term, psychoeducational and/or a maintenance approach. Interns make use of problem-focused, defense building and supportive psychotherapeutic strategies which may include the participation of family members when necessary and appropriate. Besides individual and family therapy, the outpatient psychotherapy rotation also offers a specific psycho-educational approach through group therapy for those patients who can benefit from more ongoing, long-term support and education in specifically identified areas. In particular, the outpatient psychotherapy rotation offers interns the ability to co-facilitate one of three weekly groups in the Treating Adolescents Coping with Trauma (TACT) Program for youths who have pending legal charges for sexually offensive behaviors. Interns will receive ongoing training, weekly supervision, and have the opportunity to lead groups with a licensed clinical psychologist. In addition, interns will collaborate with a multidisciplinary team (i.e., psychiatrists, Juvenile Probation Officers, Public Defenders, Case Management Agencies, etc.) as a way to enhance various professional skills and overall learning experience with this specialized population. The primary care psychology rotation includes experience with adults, women's health, and pediatrics. It focuses on applying psychological knowledge and principles to common physical and mental health problems in an outpatient setting. The interns participate on a multidisciplinary medical team providing comprehensive care in patient evaluation and treatment, determining factors affecting health, and developing tailored therapies for individuals struggling with biopsychosocial stressors. In addition, interns work towards managing illness, psychological symptomatology, and improving overall quality of life. As part of this rotation, interns also have the opportunity to run inpatient wellness groups in our Crisis Stabilization Units.
