Predoctoral Training in Professional Psychology: Supervision and Training
Supervision and Training
Training is conducted according to a curriculum that was developed by departmental faculty. The training curriculum covers multiple assessment and treatment planning, case management, responsibility to the consumers, professional conduct, as well as more specific topics such as applied behavior analysis, biological bases of behavior, parent-child relationships, and neuropsychological assessment.
At least one member of the faculty is responsible for providing close supervision of the intern's performance on each clinical case. Interns meet weekly with one or two outpatient supervisors and daily with inpatient faculty case managers in order to review case responsibilities, selection and implementation of measurement and treatment procedures, data interpretation, and treatment planning. Licensed psychologists supervise all cases. The program strictly adheres to the APA guidelines of two hours of individual (face to face) and two hours of group supervision per week.
