Program Description

The doctoral internship at WellSpan Philhaven CBT is designed to train future psychologists to work in health care settings, especially large, integrated health systems such as ours, as providers of comprehensive psychological services with an emphasis on multidisciplinary collaboration. Accordingly, we are aggressively recruiting a diverse group of interns with a passion for learning CBT and integrating these skills into medical settings and to performing diagnostic screenings and more comprehensive evaluations, serving as consultants to multidisciplinary treatment teams, and providing staff trainings in areas such as Motivational Interviewing. Also, we seek interns who are capable of a close reading of the relevant research literature and of presenting this clearly and succinctly to a professional audience in the true tradition of the practitioner-scholar. WellSpan Philhaven offers a full spectrum of psychological services to virtually all diagnostic categories and all ages in inpatient, crisis intervention, intensive outpatient, outpatient, and medical-surgical settings.  The internship has a strong cognitive behavioral orientation aimed to address the physical and emotional health of the population. Interns participate in this effort by spending their time divided into three main tasks: addressing population health by serving as a Behaviorist in Primary Care, honing their assessment and therapy skills in traditional outpatient settings, and training to extend proficiency in cognitive behavioral psychotherapy with an emphasis in behavioral medicine and community behavioral health.
