The Selection Committee will meet the first week of December to review applications and determine the candidates scheduled for interviews. Candidates will be notified by the end of December to schedule video-conferencing interviews. Interviews will be conducted in January. On-site interviews are not available. All interview candidates are asked a standard set of questions and will present a brief example of their clinical work. Time is also provided for applicants to ask questions and interact with staff and a current intern.
Our training program at Ball State University recognizes that internship is a critical period of transition and integration in our professional development as psychologists. The philosophy of our training program is developmental and focuses on learning and skill building through experience and understanding. Our training staff is committed to providing an opportunity for interns to learn and work as practitioners using evidence-based practices in an applied setting. This emphasis translates into a model of experiential and didactic processes which facilitate development through supervision and feedback. Our training program is based on the belief that professional and personal development are mutually inclusive processes. The core values at our site include the integration of social justice concepts, multicultural competencies, and the development of an increased awareness of diversities and their intersectionalities. Interns are provided opportunities for training in clinical work, including individual and group therapy, crisis intervention, and the provision of supervision. Additionally, Interns are an integral part of our outreach and consultation program which provides information and training to our campus community. Over the course of the training year, Interns are provided opportunities for assuming increasingly more responsibilities in all areas of their practice. As a training program, we aim to support Interns throughout both their internship placement and as they enter into the profession of psychology.
