The Department of Behavioral Psychology provides a wide variety of assessment and treatment services for diverse pediatric populations and their families. The philosophy of our post-doctoral fellowship program is to prepare fellows to function independently in a variety of settings, also in addition to working as members of multidisciplinary teams providing health related services to children and their families. Our postdoctoral fellowship provides training in empirical research, applied behavior analysis, developmental disabilities, behavioral pediatrics, individual therapy, and family therapy, depending on the training track. Training occurs through supervised experiences, and postdoctoral fellows completing our program are well qualified to enter clinical, medical, or academic settings. Learn more.
