Brief description of the typical work day for an intern at this training site Interns will gain experience providing a variety of direct clinical services to children, adolescents, and adults in Center for Anxiety’s standard outpatient program. They also have the opportunity to learn about cases needing a higher level of care for more acute problems by providing treatment to patients in our intensive outpatient program (IOP). Trainees are thus provided with broad training in evidence-based psychotherapy with a diverse patient population presenting with a wide range of diagnoses, symptoms, and levels of acuity. As trainees progress, they gain experience in various methods of evidence-based clinical assessment and intervention with gradually more complex and challenging cases that require an increasingly higher level of clinical skills and knowledge. All of these clinical experiences are supported with a rich didactics program, individual supervision, ad hoc consultation with members of our clinical staff, and outside professional development. About 50% of interns' time is spent in direct service to patients.

Program Description

The Center for Anxiety offers a one-year doctoral internship in clinical psychology. Our program provides interns with a wide range of outpatient experiences that offer both breadth and depth in evidence-based clinical practice.

Our mission is to synergistically combine clinical practice, education, and research to help our patients achieve their goals and lead healthy, meaningful, and fulfilling lives. The aims of our training program are consistent with the guidelines of the American Psychological Association, and place emphasis on establishing and maintaining profession wide competencies, within the realms of both training and clinical practice.

We have four training sites for the 2022-2023 internship training year.  We have two internship slots at our Brooklyn location, two at our Manhattan location, two at our Rockland Country location, and two at our Great Neck (Long Island, NY) location.  Prospective candidates can apply to any combination of sites.  Please visit our website, centerforanxiety.org for more information about our program.
