Brief description of the typical work day for an intern at this training site CADT/ PHP Track A typical work day can vary from intern to intern, and their Individualized goals help create the framework for their schedule. The following is a sampling of types of activities an intern will engage in, however, activities are typically done throughout the week rather than all in one day. On any given day a CADT intern may be providing individual therapy, family therapy and/or group therapy for patients on their assigned team. They may be completing case consultations across teams. Interns may be helping to support the patient milieu or providing assistance to the team via individual or group work with patients that are not on their assigned caseload. Interns will engage in weekly supervision themselves but also provide supervision for early career staff and students. They engage in weekly didactics. An intern will also be responsible for psychological assessments throughout their time on internship. They may assist with program development projects and hospital committees. OCD/Anxiety Track Rogers Memorial Hospital is invested in meeting the individual training needs of each intern on the OCD/Anxiety track; as such, a typical day will vary from intern to intern given his/her internship goals. For example, an intern invested in research may spend up to 50% of the week engaged in research activities. These activities may include attending research meetings, meeting with and training research assistants, reviewing literature, research-related writing, and preparing databases. Regardless of research interests, interns are expected to spend, at minimum, 30% of the work week engaged in direct delivery of therapeutic services. These activities may include meeting with residents to prepare exposure hierarchy items, assisting with exposures, addressing exposure related questions/issues, and supervising practicum students. Additionally, interns receive individual supervision throughout the week from licensed psychologists, attend weekly group supervision with fellow interns and at least one licensed psychologist, and participate in case staffings for the OCD Residential Treatment Center. Interns may also provide consultation and/or psychological assessment services throughout the hospital, but these activities do not occur weekly.

Program Description

The pre-doctoral internship program at Rogers Behavioral Health offers a broad range of experience working with child, adolescent, and adult populations. Through these experiences, the interns develop the skills and confidence needed to begin their career as practicing clinical psychologists. Interns are challenged and offered the support and supervision needed to be effective in their roles. There are two interns placed at the Child/Adolescent Day Treatment Program  and two interns placed at the OCD and Anxiety Disorders Program in Oconomowoc.  Applicants are to identify which track for which they are applying. 

Interns placed in the Day Treatment Program will refine their clinical skills by: completing case consultations and assessments, participating in interdisciplinary treatment team meetings, creating and monitoring measurable treatment goals and interventions specific to patient diagnoses, designing and facilitating psychoeducational and psychotherapy groups; and developing proficiency in individual, family therapy and supervision.

In the OCD and Anxiety Disorders track, the intern will focus on the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders with comorbidities such as eating disorders, depression, trichotillimania, and body dysmorphic disorder. Treatment goals are accomplished through use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy interventions such as exposure and response prevention and other exposure therapy approaches. Interns will become skilled at developing and implementing a graduated exposure hierarchy for each patient.  (EOE/MFDV)

The Rogers Behavioral Health Pre-Doctoral Psychology Internship has proudly obtained APA accreditation with the next accreditation review in 2021. This review has been delayed due to COVID and the site remains accredited at this time.
