Program Description

The aim of our internship program is to create competent and ethical entry-level psychologists who value interdisciplinary collaboration, and demonstrate the skills needed to evaluate empirical knowledge and consider individual differences and diverse identities in their clinical practice.  

 WSU Counseling and Psychological Services is rooted in the Practitioner-Scholar Model of training and is committed to the training and development of PDI Trainees. This program is designed to prepare psychology doctoral interns across the nine profession wide competencies defined by APA Standards of Accreditation (SoA). Each competency will be achieved by participation in a range of training activities and supervised direct service delivery activities. 

At CAPS we offer an immersive and developmentally-tailored training experience.  We strive to structure training experiences with developmentally appropriate challenges that are based in trainees’ past experience and areas of interest. During their training at CAPS, trainees immerse themselves in all aspects of work at WSU CAPS including clinical services, consultation, outreach to the University community, and professional development. Trainees’ clinical efforts are supported with intensive and diverse supervision experiences. We aim to foster professional growth in a supportive and inclusive environment. We value and consider all points of view and strive to collaborate within our own staff and across the University.

Our training program is rooted in creating multiculturally competent and ethical professionals that proudly advocate for WSU’s diverse student body. We emphasize evidence-based practice and teach our trainees to evaluate empirical knowledge and consider individual differences and diverse identities in their clinical practice. Interdisciplinary collaboration is embedded within both our training program and broader clinic. Trainees are given the opportunity to work with and learn from staff from all mental health professions (counseling, social work, psychology, and psychiatry). It is our belief that such interdisciplinary collaboration strengthens trainees’ command of the broader mental health field and their clinical expertise. Our trainees are integral and valued members of our staff. It is our hope that training at CAPS is a transformative experience that assists trainees in developing not only their professional competencies, but also their professional identities.
