Brief description of the typical work day for an intern at this training site * Department of Health and Human Services: Interns are expected to commit a minimum of 40 hours per week. They do not earn holiday or vacation times, although they can flex their hours to accommodate time off. A typical week involves 13 hours of interdisciplinary team meetings, 2 hours of face-to-face supervision, 2 hours of group supervision, 4 hours of assessment related duties, 4 hours of progress note writing, 1 hour of individual therapy, 4 hours of behavioral consultation, 3 hours of data analysis, 3 hours of behavior support plan writing or modification 3 hours of observation. *Boys Town: Interns are expected to work 40 hours per week, though will occasionally work more. Approximately 50% of interns time is spent providing therapy and consultation services. The remaining time is spent completing documentation, and receiving supervision/training. *Center for Health and Counseling - Creighton University: At Creighton, interns are expected to work 40 hours per week. On occasion, interns may work more than forty hours weekly. If interns work beyond expected hours, exchange hours can be accumulated with one working hour equal to one exchange hour. The exchange hours are working hours without pay but the interns may use these hours for time off from work. In addition, interns are expected to spend no more than 20 hours per week in direct service to students. Direct service includes individual counseling, group counseling, assessment, and couples counseling. Indirect services include weekly staff meetings, consultation, training, supervision, report writing, case note writing and test scoring. Face-to-face supervision is 3 hours per week and 20 hours per week is spent in direct client therapy contact. *Munroe-Meyer Institute: MMI requires that each intern participate in 2 full days of clinic and one half to one full day of specialty, assessment or consultation clinic per week, averaging about 15-18 hours of direct client contact time per week with 25-30 hours total for direct contact, report writing, and case management. Another 10-20 hours a week are devoted to research, didactic, and professional development activities. They also receive 4 hours of supervision per week. Typical total intern time commitment at MMI averages 40-50 hours a week. “Nebraska Medicine Psychology Department: Interns typically spend 50 percent of their time in direct service (assessment, psychotherapy, and consultation). The remainder of the intern's time is divided among documentation, record review, supervision, staff meetings and didactics. Interns are expected to work 40 hours per week, with at least 2 hours devoted to face-to-face individual supervision and 2 additional hours devoted to other forms of supervision and training *QLI: Weekly schedules vary substantially, but in addition to including 4 hours of supervision will typically include 6 hours of therapy, 8 hours of assessments, 6 hours of documentation, 6 hours of staff meetings, 8 hours of consultation, 2 hours of research. *Catholic Social Services: Catholic Social Services: Each intern is expected to work 40 hours per week, including 15-18 hours of direct services and consultation, though they will occasionally work more during certain periods of the year (e.g., peak vocational assessment time in the spring). Direct service includes individual, group and couples counseling as well as assessment. Training and supervision are strongly emphasized as well. Interns receive at least 2 hours per week of face-to-face individual supervision and 2 additional hours devoted to other forms of supervision and training. In addition, ongoing faith-integrated didactic training is provided at CSS and monthly training is provided through the various consortium sites. CAPS: nterns meet with the Training Director during orientation to determine appropriate and attainable goals for the internship year. Based on the mutually agreed upon goals between the intern and training director, the intern has the opportunity to engage in the various activities of a counseling center psychologist throughout the internship year. Examples include: individual, couples, and group counseling; initial evaluations, crisis intervention; outreach/consultation; and provision of supervision. As interns begin to immerse themselves in these direct service opportunities, they will consistently receive two hours of weekly supervision from their primary supervisor. The expectation during weekly individual supervision is that interns will discuss risk issues, discuss goals set for treatment; share the treatment plan; apply evidenced-based practice in their clinical interventions, and discuss challenges and success in the provision of therapy. Interns choose a concentrated training. These typically include one of the following areas: crisis counseling; diversity (working with students of color; working with international students; working with LGBTQA+ students); disordered eating concerns/body image; outreach programming; and alcohol/other drug counseling/intervention. After interns receive training in these concentration areas, they receive weekly supervision from a secondary supervisor in their area of concentration and build their clinical case load based on the area chosen. Interns are expected to work 40 hours per week, although they will occasionally work more during the academic year. Interns work with the training director to strive for a healthy work/life balance. By the end of the internship year, interns will be prepared with the knowledge, awareness, and skills of a generalist. Our interns are well prepared for careers in either university/college counseling centers or private practice.

Program Description

The NICPP adheres to a scientist-practitioner approach to psychological practice within an ecological-developmental framework. Although the exact goals of each of the agencies may differ to some extent, all are committed to a training philosophy that emphasizes ethical problem solving; evidence-based assessment and intervention practices; access to supervision that facilitates reflective, scientifically-based practice and to other resources supportive of this goal; access to diverse clients; research activities; and to a training plan that combines experiential learning with other modes of education. Specific training objectives include assisting interns to: (a) apply ethical decision making to complex clinical and research activities; (b) deepen their understanding of the role of psychology as a science and a practice in many professional settings; (c) refine their commitment to life-long scholarship and contributions to the science and practice of psychology; and (d) develop competencies to evaluate the efficacy of work with diverse clients and systems.
