Program Description

The aim of the GBHC Doctoral Internship in Psychology is to train ethical, competent, and culturally responsive Psychologists for future clinical practice in varied settings with an emphasis on the provision of mental health services to the severely mentally ill. The Internship is integral to the function and philosophy of GBHC and OMH in its provision of a wide range of assessment and treatment services to traditionally underserved populations. The training is generalist in nature and is designed to train Doctoral Psychology students to provide mental health services that integrate a biopsychosocial, culturally sensitive, and trauma-informed perspectives. The Internship is based on a practitioner-scholar model that emphasizes the integration of science and clinical practice and the development of profession-wide competencies proposed by the Health Service Psychology Education Collaborative (2013) and the American Psychological Association. GBHC is fully accredited by The Joint Commission.

The training provided by GBHC’s Internship is generalist in nature such that the knowledge and skills acquired may be applied to a wide range of future clinical endeavors in private and public sector settings. GBHC provides inpatient and outpatient services. Every attempt is made to establish the Intern as a fully participating member of the interdisciplinary team at the rotation site, rather than as simply a student or assistant to staff. Over the course of the Internship year, Interns assume a position of increasing responsibility in relation to both the clinical services they provide and the training program, including the opportunity to provide clinical supervision to student Externs, proposing changes to the program and participating in the interview process for the next cohort of Interns. At the end of the Internship year, it is expected that Interns will be ready to assume the independent clinical functioning expected of an entry-level doctoral psychology professional. The Internship trains Interns to assist recipients in working towards increasing hope, wellness, and self-advocacy and, therefore, promotes GBHC’s vision statement.
