The VA New Jersey Health Care System is comprised of 2 medical centers 20 miles apart (East Orange & Lyons), plus several outpatient clinics and the Bloomfield Vet Center. Our population is diverse with respect to ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic status. Comprehensive mental health services are provided to veterans in areas such as acute psychiatry, outpatient mental health, long-term psychiatric rehabilitation and recovery, geropsychology, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorders, military sexual trauma, behavioral medicine including oncology, and health psychology. Training rotations are typically six months in duration with opportunities for major and minor clinical assignments within each rotation. Concentration in areas of clinical interest may be possible. We employ a practitioner-scholar model. Our training program exposes interns to the scientific principles of practice through readings, seminars, and supervision. Our rotation supervisors offer diverse perspectives, including psychodynamic, CBT, ACT, Mindfulness, integrative, & evidence-based approaches. Rotations and clinical activities are determined by the intern’s level of training and skill, with a progressive increase in complexity of cases and level of autonomy as competence is demonstrated. Supervised instruction is offered in the use of various assessment measures including cognitive and neuropsychological instruments. Interns develop increased competency in writing comprehensive integrated psychological reports. In support of the program's clinical and academic aims, we offer a series of well-developed seminars one full day per week. Interns develop advanced competencies in the 9 Profession Wide Competencies required by APA including intervention (group & individual), assessment, multicultural & individual diversity, ethics, legal standards, professional conduct, supervision, consultation/interprofessional collaborative care, and professional issues. Please review our brochure for the specific details of rotations, seminars, and the structure and philosophy of our large, well-developed training program.
