The psychology internship at the UCR Counseling and Psychological Services provides training to interns using a practitioner-mentorship-developmental training model. The guiding principal is that learning is a developmental process that is dependent on support, challenge, feedback, and role modeling. Our training model is supported by the following principles that are infused into all aspects of the internship curriculum: a)Developmental perspective on all training activities; b)Focus on clinical service delivery as applied to university setting; c) A sequential learning environment that encourages movement from intern to competent and autonomous professional; d)Emphasis on supervision and mentoring/role-modeling; e)Creating a learning environment that is collaborative and collegial; f)Interdependence with the university community; g)Respect for diversity and uniqueness of the individual.
