Chosen candidates will be offered an interview. This year all interviews will be held remotely, via videoconference using Zoom. A virtual open house format will be utilized. Dates for the open house are potentially January 11th and January 18th. Candidates will be provided a virtual tour of the agency (estimated 30 minutes) and will meet the Training Director (estimated one hour) along with a group of intern applicants. Applicants will be individually interviewed by two psychologists on the Training Committee (one hour). Applicants will also have opportunity to visit with current interns and/or post-doctoral residents in a virtual open house format (estimated one hour).
Solutions' aim is to prepare and retain generalist health service psychologists with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to provide ethical, professional, and socially-just psychological services to a diverse population, having met the expected professional standards outlined by APA's Council on Accreditation.
Solutions’ Psychology Internship program seeks to provide a broad level of training for Interns and prepare them for a “generalist” practice of professional psychology consistent with the philosophy of the practitioner-scholar model of training. We endeavor to teach Interns to meld their clinical and theoretical training with current research findings as they choose assessment strategies, interpret results, develop interventions, and provide effective consultation. We do not define any program-specific competencies, but rather focus on establishing the APA Profession Wide Competencies, which are further outlined below in our goals. A second objective is for workforce development, as a means to affect the shortage of psychologists in this area.
