Interview process description:

After the November 1st, 11:59 pm PST application deadline, our selection committee will review all completed applications. We will then contact applicants we consider for interviews by email to schedule a standardized, 45-to-60 minute, zoom/phone interview to be held between December 6 and 17, 2021. We do not offer on-site interviews. All of our interviews are conducted by Zoom, but phone interviews can be contacted upon request. Candidates who are no longer being considered for interviews will be notified by e-mail by December 6, 2021. Two members of the CAPS staff will be present in each interview. Prior to the interviews, we email a vignette to the applicants. During the interview, applicants are asked general questions regarding their training and work experience as well as vignette-specific questions. Applicants are invited to attend one of two "interns-only" meetings to explore internship experience at CAPS. This is an optional meeting and will be held via Zoom. The dates of these meetings will be determined at a later date. When we contact candidates to schedule an interview, we will notify them about the dates of these "interns-only" meetings and applicants will be given an option to sign-up with one of the two dates. We encourage our applicants to contact the Training Director to ask questions at any time of the application process. The Training Director would be glad to answer questions of the applicants and have them connected, if indicated, with our current or former interns to assist an applicant to gain further insight into our training program.

Program Description

This is a 2000-hour internship program that mentors interns in developing their competencies and identity as professional psychologists. The program combines 1) direct service such as clinical work, outreach, and consultation, with 2) intensive supervision, and 3) didactic/experiential learning such as seminars and in-services. Our training model is developmentally based where experiences initially include more support and direction from permanent staff and move toward increased independence. Our diverse, multi-disciplinary staff offers a variety of theoretical approaches but highlights personal strengths, mindfulness, relationship building, diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice, and the process of psychotherapy. Interns are valued as important contributing members of the CAPS team, and we view the interaction between our system and individual trainees as an important source of learning. One goal is to facilitate a process of integrating the personal self with the professional self. This includes factors such as knowing one's strengths and weaknesses, maintaining an awareness of one's impact on clients and colleagues, developing/maintaining cultural humility, managing stress levels, setting realistic professional goals, and striving toward a healthy balance in one's life. Finally, we promote psychologists as being integrated members of the agencies and communities in which they serve, work, and live. Here at OSU, we work hard to ensure that CAPS is an active and visible presence on campus, and work collaboratively with other departments. Interns will have opportunities to work and interact with staff, faculty, and students across the campus community.
