Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology - APA Accredited

The Utah State University Counseling and Psychological Services' (CAPS) Doctoral Internship has been in existence since 1996 and is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). Information on accreditation is available at the Office of Program Consultation and Accreditation, American Psychological Association, 750 First Street NE, Washington, D.C. 20002-4242, or by phone at (202) 336-5979 or (202) 336-6123 TDD.

CAPS doctoral internship provides quality training focused on eight basic areas of psychological practice important in a university counseling center or similar setting: individual therapy; group therapy; psycho-educational and psychological assessment; outreach and consultation activities; providing clinical supervision; awareness of and responsiveness to diversity issues; ethical and professional behavior; and professional development. While interns at CAPS are expected to function semi-autonomously, they can also expect to work and learn in an atmosphere characterized by respect and support. Overall, the goal of our internship is to create mentoring relationships and a learning environment in which interns can hone their skills and grow professionally in a safe and supervised setting. In addition to a number of required core experiences, our training allows an intern flexibility in choosing elective experiences consistent with his or her professional goals.

Internship applications for the 2014-15 year are due on November 4, 2013
