Interview process description:

Selected applicants will be invited to arrange a video or telephone interview in early January. At least two members of the selection committee, in addition to the TD, participate in the interviews, which are approximately 45 minutes in length. CAPS utilizes video and phone interviews exclusively in an effort to minimize cost and hardship for applicants. The candidate will also be given opportunities to get further information from current interns that are NOT on the selection committee.  Given the current public health pandemic, we may be offering video tours of the counseling center rather than on-site visits.  Candidates are welcome to arrange these opportunities BEFORE the rank date, to help in their decision-making. In the interest of fairness, applicants’ interactions will be limited to staff and trainees who are not on the selection committee.

Program Description

The intent of our doctoral internship in professional psychology is to provide a broadly based and integrated scholar-practitioner program for this capstone year of graduate training in clinical or counseling psychology. The application of psychological science, broadly defined, is at the foundation of developmentally sequenced experiential learning in multiple intervention modalities, and is supported by intensive supervision, seminar experiences, opportunities for role models and mentors, and a commitment to life-long learning.

Our internship is designed to prepare ethical and multiculturally sensitive professional psychologists who can move with competence, creativity and flexibility into a variety of positions providing clinical, consultation and outreach services to adults in outpatient settings, and providing training to students and other clinicians. Self-reflection and interpersonal dialogue are highly valued aspects of our training. Supervisors and seminar facilitators encourage, but never require, self-disclosure of personal information that may facilitate or hinder psychological practice or collegial relationships.

We value our multicultural, multidisciplinary and multitheoretical learning and working environment. Enhancement of multicultural skills is an important aspect of our program, with interns participating in a weekly multicultural seminar and staff actively engaged in examining our own multiple identities. Our staff and training program is multidisciplinary, involving clinical psychologists, counseling psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatrists, and a psychiatric nurse practitioner. The diverse theoretical approaches utilized by staff enrich our work while our shared awareness of developmental issues and of brief therapy provide common ground.

Staff members are diverse in identities, therapeutic approaches, and academic discipline; we share a love of training and a focus on providing quality brief clinical services, outreach and consultation services to support the University of Michigan student communities.  Various training seminars and supervision opportunities include UM Social Work interns, Post-Doctoral Fellows, Post-MSW Fellows and Psychology Practicum trainees.
