Combined Predoctoral Internship/ Postdoctoral Fellowship Clinical Psychology
The Center for Anxiety offers a two-year training program in clinical psychology consisting of a one-year pre-doctoral internship program followed by a one-year postdoctoral fellowship. We developed our two-year training program with the goal of providing doctoral students in clinical psychology the necessary support and experience to fully navigate the transition from graduate student to licensed clinician. As students progress through their internship and postdoctoral years, they are gradually afforded increased flexibility and autonomy to tailor their individual curriculum according to their training needs. Through this process, trainees are able to build the clinical skills and competencies necessary for independent professional practice.
Our program places an emphasis on providing clinical interns and postdoctoral fellows with comprehensive and broad clinical training experiences with children, adolescents, and adults in Center for Anxiety’s general outpatient and intensive outpatient programs (e.g., experience with a variety of clinical activities, treatment modalities, diverse patient populations, a full range of psychiatric diagnoses of varying severity). In addition, opportunities for specialized training are available to trainees in the form of: (1) Elective clinical activities that trainees complete in accordance with individual training needs and interests, and (2) A specialization during each training year, providing in-depth training in Child and Family Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or Research.
