Training general adult practitioners is the primary purpose of the Manhattan VA psychology internship program. Our internship training emphasizes the basic clinical principles and skills essential to the ethical and competent practice of health service psychology. We provide interns with a broad range of experiences in assessment, intervention, and consultation with a variety of patients in medical and mental health settings. Training is informed by scientific inquiry, critical thinking, and active learning. Our program consists of 3 major rotations (4 mos. each) in Inpatient Psychiatry, Health Psychology/Primary Care, and PTSD. Half of interns' time is spent on the major rotation. The rest of their time is comprised of ongoing, year-long assignments psychodynamic psychotherapy, CBT, evidence-based therapies for PTSD, and group psychotherapy as well as 6 month assignments in neuropsychological assessment and Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples. The various clinical training assignments are enhanced by a diverse program of supervision, seminars, and peer review presentations within the VA, as well as at neighboring institutions such as Bellevue and NYU Medical Center. Interns receive intensive supervision (both individual and group) for each rotation and training experience (5-6 hours per week). Our program uses an apprenticeship method of training, providing opportunities for interns to work side by side with supervisors. We also make every effort to foster each intern's creativity, growth, and autonomy. Interns carry their own cases and participate in interdisciplinary team meetings and peer review presentations independently and with their supervisors. Supervisors utilize a variety of treatment orientations and approaches, including: psychodynamic, supportive, CBT, DBT, CPT, PE, STAIR, systems, and eclectic modalities.
