Interviews will take place in late December and early January. All interviews for the 2022-2023 training year will be virtual, with video interviews preferred over telephone interviews. Each applicant will have an opportunity to interview with at least three members of the Psychology Training Committee (including at least two psychologists).
We offer and implement competency-based professional psychology training, within a rural psychology context, in accord with a scholar-practitioner model. Our goal is to train ethically grounded, culturally aware generalists who can thoughtfully apply empirically grounded psychological assessment, treatment, and consultation skills for the benefit of persons and organizations, particularly within a rural environment. Training consists of 2080 hours in 3 four-day four-month rotations and 1 one-day year-long rotation. Those rotations include outpatient therapy, PTSD treatments, health psychology, primary care mental health integration/CBOC, neuropsychology, geropsychology, and an intensive outpatient ACT pain program. Our psychology interns have the unique opportunity to serve those who have served our country in the military. We are located on spacious wooded grounds five miles east of Augusta, the state capital of Maine.
