Brief description of the typical work day for an intern at this training site The typical caseload for any given intern includes three to six outpatient individual psychotherapy cases (children and/or parents) plus approximately one psychodiagnostic testing assessment per month. Other clinical activities such as Psychiatry Consult Service, Developmental Neuropsychiatry Clinic, and Primary Care Service round out each trainee's program. The training year begins in July and it is expected that by October, each trainee will be delivering about 16 to 18 hours of direct service per week. Another four to six hours will be spent in supervision, with an additional four hours devoted to seminars associated with the internship program and specific services. Additional time is generally required for consultation with referral sources, community agencies, schools, and co-therapists. The program is designed to occupy 40 hours per week of a trainee's time, although many trainees report investing additional time completing reports and other paperwork, making telephone contacts with community agencies, or attending special meetings.
