All interviews for the upcoming 2021-2022 internship year will be conducted virtually utilizing zoom technology. All zoom invitations will include the required password, which will vary for each applicant’s interview. All interviews with League Center supervisors will be conducted individually. A Q&A session will take place with the applicant and current interns in a group. Interns will have the opportunity to meet with supervising staff at both sites, with a 90-minute interview conducted with their primary track and a 30-60 minute interview with their secondary placement. Interns will have access to a wide range of photographs and videos of the interior and exterior of our program sites, classrooms, therapy offices, as well as additional spaces and facilities.
Our internship program provides comprehensive and sequential training to prepare competent clinical practitioners capable of functioning in a dynamic and challenging therapuetic school setting. The program’s primary objectives are to train interns in the requisite diagnostic and treatment skills for collaborative work within a multi-disciplinary team while maintaining high standards of professionalism and ethics. The program provides a structured and supportive environment and works with interns to gain competence in diagnosis and assessment as well as individual, group, and family psychotherapy. In addition, interns will develop greater competence in research, diversity, supervision, program development, consultation, crisis intervention, and case management. Interns will receive training at the Joan Fenichel Therapeutic Nursery (JFTN) and the League School and Day Treatment Center.
