Program Description


There are four prongs of the training program at Children’s Program: didactic learning through weekly seminars, supportive training opportunities through case conferences and consultations, individual and group supervision, and direct client service. Interns at Children’s Program will participate in a minimum of two hours of didactic instruction/professional development per week; however, there are often more opportunities than the minimum requirement. Additionally, Interns are afforded time to attend psychology-related conferences, workshops, or trainings beyond those provided by Children’s Program. 

The Children’s Program Intern Seminar Series is designed to provide interns with advanced-level training in the following areas: ethics and professional development, issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), as well as the assessment and treatment of clinical concerns in children and youth. The Intern Seminar Series is presented by Children’s Program clinicians who possess a diverse range of clinical specialties and areas of expertise.  Seminars are presented throughout the entirety of the training year and are on a weekly basis. Refer to the program brochure for sample seminar topics. 

Required supportive training opportunities include:

  • Bi-monthly case consultation conferences with staff clinicians (aka “team meetings”)
  • Monthly clinical trainings with external speakers/trainers (aka “clinical meetings”)
  • Monthly Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) journal club meetings
  • Bi-annual case presentations by intern to staff clinicians

Direct Service Treatment Modalities and Rotations

  • Individual
  • Group
  • Family/Couples
  • Agency consultation
  • Parent training


Interns will complete training rotations, both major and minor, focusing on assessment and intervention. Interns can customize their training year by selecting minor rotations that align with their clinical interests. The rotations are as follows:


Major rotation (full year; 8-12 hours per week):

  • Trauma Assessment: completing comprehensive psychological evaluations of at-risk children across the age span who are involved in the child welfare system and have differing levels of dysfunction, impact, and clinical needs. The rotation involves clinical supervision and training in issues related to: trauma, attachment, interacting and coordinating care with community partners and agencies, ethical and legal issues specific to the child welfare system, as well as more general training in the psychological assessment of infants, children and youth.

Minor rotation options (full year; 5-8 hours per week):

  • Diagnostic assessment rotation: completing comprehensive psychological, diagnostic, and psychoeducational evaluations for children with neurodevelopmental delays, ADHD, LDs, etc.
  • Anxiety treatment rotation: delivering evidence-based (e.g., ERP, CBT, SPACE) treatment for children with anxiety disorders.
  • Disruptive behaviors rotation: providing group and individual therapy to families/children with disruptive behavior problems (e.g., (Parent Child Interaction Therapy [PCIT], parent training, Incredible Years and Dinosaur School group interventions).
  • ASD rotation: conducting diagnostic ASD evaluations and providing behavioral intervention and consultation to families of children on the Autism Spectrum.
  • ADHD treatment rotation: providing group and individual intervention for children with ADHD diagnoses including ADHD-specific individual and group parent training, and behavior therapy.
  • Trauma treatment rotation:conducting evidence-based, trauma-focused treatment for children and families. Rotation may include opportunities to learn about EMDR, TF-CBT, and/or TBRI
