Brief description of the typical work day for an intern at this training site The typical work day varies dependent upon the rotation, caseload, intakes, and youth crises. Intern activities are divided into four general categories: Psychotherapy Services, Rotation, Assessment, and Supervision/Consultation/Training. Interns spend approximately 25% of their time each week providing Psychology Services (direct service). This includes individual therapy, intake screening, risk assessment and facilitating groups. Approximately 20% of the week is dedicated to rotation-specific duties. Interns begin the first quarter with two weeks of orientation and training, followed by the Intake and Risk Assessment Rotation. This provides an introduction and solid foundation upon which to build subsequent training, experience, and professional skills. During each week, interns focus on a wide range of psychological assessment/evaluation activities totaling about 20% of the time. Various sources and activities generate assessment/evaluative questions. Assessment and evaluation focus on improving treatment and enhancing youth outcomes. Measures used include various screening tools, self-reports, comprehensive batteries, projective tests, symptom validity tests, and risk assessments. Interns spend a range of time (20% to 35%) in supervision, consultation, and training. This range accounts for unplanned supervision, additional didactics and meetings specific to the unit or individual, and varied amounts of time taking a multidisciplinary consultative approach.
