The Doctoral Internship in Health Service Psychology offered by the Counseling Center at The Catholic University of America is designed to provide supervised clinical experience in individual and group psychotherapy, consultation and outreach, crisis intervention, and supervision. Senior staff supervisors have a variety of theoretical orientations, and the orientation of internship training as a whole is integrationist. The internship received accreditation from the American Psychological Association (APA) in April 2010. The aim of the internship is to provide graduate interns with a comprehensive, well-organized training experience, focusing on the continued development of the professional skills necessary for successful functioning as a professional psychologist. Our interns are regarded as an important part of the agency, are respected as full-time professional staff, and are expected to work closely with senior staff as colleagues. Emphasis is placed upon working with different treatment modalities and collaborating with colleagues of different theoretical orientations.
