Doctoral Internship

Dear Psychology Internship Applicants,

The Counseling and Psychological Services Center’s (CPSC) is pleased to participate in the APPIC Match Phase II. Our one-year, 2000 hour doctoral internship begins on August 1, 2017. We offer a remuneration of $26,000 for the training year and a benefits package containing health and dental coverage, paid time off, professional development support, and access to WSU services such as our gym, transportation pass, and wellness programs.

We will begin reviewing applications for Phase II on February 23, 2017, and will continue to accept applications until February 27, 2017 at 5:00 PM in Mountain time zone. Interviews will take place the week of March 6, 2017. As a new internship program, we are not APPIC-members or APA-accredited. We will be accepting applications through the Match, and applicants can us find using the NMS number 240311. We have been working hard to expand our training program to include psychology interns, and we have included a number of training opportunities I hope you will find interesting.

CPSC provides mental health therapy services to Weber State University’s (WSU) students. WSU is a non-traditional university, and our student population is largely drawn from Weber and Davis counties in Utah. The population is rounded out by students from all 50 states, five U.S. territories, and 47 countries. Our population of students is older than average for a university, and many of our students are married, work full or part-time off campus, and attend school part-time. As a result, CPSC tends to see a more diverse clientele, particularly in terms of presenting problem, than is typical for a university counseling center.

Our center is multidisciplinary and houses psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, clinical mental health counselors, a marriage and family therapist, and a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. Psychology interns at our center will have the opportunity to learn from mental health professionals with a diverse range of backgrounds, training experiences, and areas of emphasis. Seminars will be led by a variety of our staff members and will include guests from different offices on campus, allowing psychology interns the opportunity to hone consultation skills and consider treatment from a wide range of perspectives. Our center also hosts graduate trainees from area universities, providing opportunities for psychology interns to supervise other trainees. Two of our psychologists speak Spanish, and interns may have the opportunity to provide services in Spanish and receive supervision in that work. In keeping with our multidisciplinary and diverse center, CPSC is committed to seeking out and training diverse psychology interns.

Psychology interns at CPSC can expect to provide individual therapy, group therapy, couples therapy, and crisis interventions for our students. In addition, we believe that prevention is an important role for CPSC, and we place an emphasis on outreach to the campus to help provide information and intervention in a group setting. CPSC’s psychology interns will work closely with another department on campus to provide targeted outreach services for a specific student group. We also value evidence-based practice and continuing education, and our psychology interns provide in-service training for our staff and invited guests.

Please spend some time exploring our website, learning more about our training program, and learning more about the services offered by CPSC. I am happy to answer questions about our training program and application process.

Sincerely,

Jamie E. Brass, Psy.D.
