Half-day interviews will take place on a Monday, Tuesday, or Friday morning or afternoon in January 2023. Applicants will virtually tour our facility and have individual interviews via Zoom with the Psychology staff on topics related to working with children and families, including, but not limited to assessment and management of suicidal crises, trauma-focused treatment, cultural humility and multicultural aspects of counseling, ethics, and supervision. Additionally, candidates will have the opportunity to meet virtually with the current interns to inquire about their experiences.
Each group of applicants will be photographed via Zoom to ensure interviewers remember the correct applicant during the ranking meeting. Applicants may, without penalty, notify the internship director either prior to or during the interview day turn off their camera during the picture taking time if they prefer not to be photographed.
The purpose of the Psychology Internship Program is to provide the intern with specialized training in the provision of services to children, adolescents and families in an applied setting. The internship is an organized program that endorses the scholar-practitioner philosophy. It is community-based and systemic in nature. The Internship faculty has developed a strong, diversified, evidence-based training program that consistently informs the interns that science and practice are interlocking skills that form the foundation of psychological knowledge and application. Thus, the Internship provides training in clinical interventions that are evidence-based and incorporate issues of human diversity throughout the curriculum. As such, an intensive integration of theory and practice is stressed throughout the year. The process of critical thinking, hypothesis testing and other elements of the scientific method are engendered and integrated into all experiential activities throughout the training process. Interns will be expected to have a strong interest in, as well as display a strong commitment to, developing a level of expertise in working with children and families in the community.
