Program Description

Jordan Valley believes that the competent practice of psychology requires an integration of scientific and professional knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Thus, Jordan Valley’s internship training incorporates diverse psychological theories, approaches, and perspectives that are designed to prepare psychology interns for a broad range of professional roles and activities. The training program is also attuned to the continually expanding scope and evolving nature of the field and the likelihood that clinical psychologists will engage in multiple roles over the course of their professional careers.

      Jordan Valley is committed to providing a clinical training experience that is sequential, cumulative, and graded in complexity. The training is conducted in a facilitative and supportive manner that provides each psychology intern with the opportunities to experience the practice of psychology with rural and underserved patients and as members of multidisciplinary integrative primary care teams. Psychology interns are respected trainees who make valuable contributions that enhance the learning environment of the organization as a whole.    Psychology interns are provided the opportunity to expand their understanding of theoretical principles and translate that knowledge into practice.

                The goal of the supervisory relationship is to maximize the opportunity for the psychology interns to develop a constructive, collaborative working alliance that supports growth, learning, and quality care provision. Through collaborative modeling with supervisors, psychology interns are socialized into the profession and develop an appreciation for continuing professional development and lifelong learning.
