EXTERNSHIPS, INTERNSHIPS & Post-Doc Fellowships
Rebecca School externship/internship & fellowship programs are distinguished for their focus on clinical training and professional development for our trainees. Trainee’s receive one hour of didactic seminar within the Psychology Department as well as an additional, one hour didactic seminar that is provided for all departments (on Fridays only). Finally, you will observe and participate in weekly grand rounds/case conference which include all staff (as well as the family of the student being presented). Didactic seminars are provided by senior clinicians from Rebecca School, as well as by outside speakers with expertise in child/adolescent development, relational psychology/DIR and the treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders.
Supervision is provided by highly experienced, licensed psychologists. Trainees receive a minimum of one hour of individual supervision and one hour of group supervision weekly. In addition to supervision and training provided by licensed psychologists, you have the opportunity to observe clinicians from other disciplines, including music therapists, social workers, and DIR/Floortime consultants. The senior staff have expertise in a variety of theoretical orientations including psychodynamic therapy, interpersonal psychology, and trauma theory. Trainees are encouraged to adopt their own personal style for conducting psychotherapy within this developmental, relational model. The videotaping of sessions is commonly used as an additional training tool that helps trainees deepen their clinical skills and self-confidence.
