Program Description

At CTAC, our goal is to provide not only excellent, in-depth clinical training to interns, but also to provide a program that is both personally and professionally rewarding in order to launch trainees into their future careers in clinical psychology. The aims of the doctoral internship program are to provide students with a broad range of experiences in an outpatient setting specializing in treating eating disorders, by treating a diverse population of clients and learning from psychologists with varying professional and personal backgrounds in order to develop profession-wide competencies. Interns provide a broad range of treatment services at our outpatient practice, including individual psychotherapy, family psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, couples therapy, as well as comprehensive psychological assessments for a number of presenting concerns. On a weekly basis, interns will participate in therapy supervision, assessment supervision, team meeting, group supervision, and didactic seminars that include topics in the domains of eating disorders, psychotherapy, and psychological assessment.

Following models of servant leadership and authentic leadership, interns will be invited to develop character strengths such as humility, forgiveness, courage, and more, in addition to professional skills such as assertive communication, conflict resolution, and collaborative teamwork. CTAC wants all employees and trainees to feel like they are better people for having worked here. Our program heavily emphasizes practical skills for the working world and professional mentorship.

The doctoral psychology internship program represents the first year in a two-year training track at CTAC; the second year is a postdoctoral residency which provides additional training in our areas of specialization (e.g., eating disorders, psychological testing, supervising externs) and hours toward licensure pending continued interest and fit at CTAC. Interns must complete their dissertation, doctoral degree, and internship in order to participate in the postdoctoral residency.

PLEASE NOTE: The internship start date is listed as 7/29/22 in order to establish the intern's health benefits. The first week of training requirements is 8/1/22.
