The CAPS pre-doctoral psychology internship is based on the practitioner-scholar model. The program values experiential learning with formal supervision as well as informal opportunities to consult with staff as needed. The program emphasizes and values collaboration and consultation, and interns are encouraged to foster collaborative relationships with all members of the staff. Research and critical thinking skills are also valued, and interns are expected to integrate recent research into their work and to learn about, and employ empirically-supported treatments.
The internship training fosters the development of multicultural competence and a deep grounding in ethical principles. Each intern is expected to develop strong clinical skills with clients from diverse cultural backgrounds and gain a secure sense of self as a competent and ethical psychology professional. Interns also gain experience in outreach/community education, clinical consultation, and supervision of psychology externs.
