Program Description

The health service psychologist model is well suited to training and service delivery for emerging adults within a higher education context. Health and wellness promotion and treatment of mental health disorders occur within an integrative, emerging adult developmental framework.  At CAPS, biopsychosocial assessment, intervention, and consultation are provided for undergraduate, graduate and professional students, faculty, staff, parents and families.  Considerations of micro- and macrolevel aspects of diversity are paramount for trainees, professionals and service users within the collegiate context.  Agency values of promoting race equity and cultural humility are vital.  Advances in psychiatry and clinical social work supplement the training experience.

Practice, research, and scholarship form a symbiotic relationship, with opportunities for continuous feedback and enhancement of services and knowledge acquisition.  Didactic and experiential modes of learning are valued, as well as an appreciation for interdisciplinary pedagogies.  Conventional theories of development, behavior, and human functioning are closely examined alongside evidence-based research.  Similarly, scientific inquiry from other knowledge streams is considered and thus complements learning.  Emphasis is placed on self-interrogation, use-of-self, and critical consciousness raising.  Interns are supported in developing skills to become active consumers of clinical research and practice.  Counselors-in-training are encouraged to maintain a stance of curiosity and reflexivity while they critically evaluate applications across contexts.  Finally, the primacy of personal and professional growth within a health and wellness model is consistent with the goals of CAPS and Student Affairs.

Training, education, and service occur within an interdisciplinary agency of psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatric providers, and licensed clinical mental health counselors.  Duke Reach, Student Health, and Counseling and Psychological Services are among several offices whose mission is to support, retain, and engage students on topics of health, resilience, and wellness.  The training experience is service-oriented and individually tailored to provide a broad range of didactic, clinical and outreach programs to emerging adult and adult populations.
