We have 2 intern slots available for the 2023-2024 internship year. Psychology Interns will have two types of practice options to participate in for their internship experience. Our goal is to allow each intern the opportunity to develop their own tailored learning experience to meet their future practice goals. The Outpatient therapy track entails providing outpatient therapy services (short- and longer-term therapy) to youth and/or adults in one of our outpatient clinics located in Wenatchee. Our outpatient track involves more longer-term patient care opportunities. Our program emphasizes empirically based psychotherapies. The Integrated Primary Care track will be located in one of our primary care clinics in Wenatchee, providing care as an Integrated Behavioral Health provider to youth and/or adults. Our integrated primary care track emphasizes the brief, solution-focused treatment that seems to best serve our primary care setting and patient needs.
Interns will have the opportunity to participate in a) the Outpatient therapy track only, b) the Integrated Primary Care track only, or c) a mixed rotation, with 6 months spent in each track. Interns will make the decision as to how they want to build their internship experience, in conjunction with the Training Director, during the 1st two weeks of the internship year.
Interns in both tracks will also have an opportunity to further practice and develop their assessment skills using standardized assessment tools, from brief clinical tools (e.g., PHQ-9, GAD-7, CES-DC, SCARED) to broader assessment instruments such as the Woodcock-Johnson IV Cognitive & Achievement Scales or the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI).
Internship supervisors are on site in all of our locations throughout the internship program. Each clinical supervisor is also readily available via Teams video call, phone, email and/or text as needed on a daily basis.
