Our internship program has recently been conducting video based interviews through WebEx. Positive feedback from intern applicants has strenghtened our commitment to offering video-conferencing interviews due to the combination of scheduling flexibility and reduced travel expenses for intern applicants. The current pandemic has made virtual interviews a necessity as well. The video interviews will be scheduled to occur the weeks of 1/10/2022 and 1/17/2022.
The North Carolina Department of Public Safety's Division of Adult Correction's primary goal is to promote public safety by the administration of a fair and humane system which provides reasonable opportunities for adjudicated offenders to develop progressively responsible behavior. The North Carolina Division of Adult Correction (NC DAC) Doctoral Internship in Health Service Psychology offers interns education, training, and preparation for the future practice of professional psychology. Our internship provides a platform for future work in substance abuse, trauma, severe mental illness, community mental health, and integrated healthcare settings. In addition, the NC DAC doctoral internship experience provides a wealth of corrections-specific instruction for interns wishing to find permanent employment in a correctional setting. This goal is accomplished by providing interns with didactic seminars, supervision, and opportunities to achieve proficiency in consultation, assessment, and intervention and therapy with a diverse, under-served, disenfranchised, and frequently disadvantaged client population.
