Internship Program Overview

Supervision

Interns receive two hours of individual and two hours of group supervision per week, as follows:

  • Individual supervision with Training Director
  • Individual supervision with Rotation Supervisor
  • Group supervision with Training Director
  • Group supervision with Assessment Supervisor

Seminars and Didactic Experiences

Interns are provided with opportunities to further their training through two hours per week of seminars and other structured didactic activities. The following are offered monthly:

Grand Rounds: The Grand Rounds series is organized through the Department of Psychiatry and features speakers from inside and outside of the institution who discuss a variety of topics. Dr. Krejci, who sits on the CME Committee, organizes half the Grand Rounds, with a particular focus on psychosocial treatment interventions and evidence-based practices.

Psychology Case Conference: This forum for psychology interns and faculty focuses on particularly challenging clinical cases discussed from a variety of clinical and theoretical perspectives.

Controversies in Evidence-Based Practices Seminar: Participants are assigned an article from the literature on evidence-based practices and empirically supported treatments to review and critique. The aims of the seminar are to help interns to:

  • Keep current with recent developments and controversies in these areas
  • Hone critical thinking skills by evaluating the arguments for and against evidence-based practices and empirically supported treatments
  • Understand the implications of recent trends for clinical practice and for the future of psychology as a profession

Specialized Seminars

Offered for two hours every other week, the seminar series has two components:

Research/Program Development Seminar: The Research/Program Development Seminar is led by Dr. Krejci. We develop and implement research and program development projects that will benefit the organization. These may include analyzing patient outcome data, evaluating aspects of clinical programming, developing clinical tools and resources, and developing or refining program curricula. Interns may be designated as project leaders, but we work collaboratively on all projects.

Topic-based Seminars: Presented by members of the Internship Faculty, these seminars cover a range of topics relevant to interns' daily work and professional development. Specific topics include Trauma and Abuse, Eating Disorders, Ethical Dilemmas in Professional Practice, Developing a Private Practice and Racial and Socioeconomic Issues in Treatment.
