Kaiser Permanente, Fresno, provides generalist training in our psychology internship program. Supervising psychologists represesnt a wide variety of clinical orientations within a culturally diverse, multi-cultural setting in the San Joaquin Valley. Major rotations include: Adult, Child, Intensive Outpatient-Adult, Intensive Outpatient-Adolescent, and Behavioral Medicine. Minor exposure is also available in Chemical Dependency, Chronic Pain Management and various groups/classes. Our interns give to the community by providing psycho-educational resources to wellness classes which are open to the community. Interns have opportunity to provide individual and group psychotherapy. With over 20 groups per week, there are many from which to chose. There are also several psycho-educational classes interns may lead. Interns are required to complete 8-10 assessment batteries throughout the year. This can include basic neuropsychological testing, ADHD testing, and personality testing. Supervision includes 2 individual hours per week and 2.5 group supervision hours per week with more as needed. The Ethics and Professional Seminar series (2 hours per week) provides education on many topics by a multidisciplinary staff. We have many resources for interns including computers, group rooms, testing rooms, extensive testing library, clinical library, and internet access. Additionally, we have clinical resources (e.g., handouts, videos, medical backup) to support our patients as whole persons. We value our interns and strive to create a strong foundation for our interns to grow and develop as emerging professionals.
