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)
