CAPS Training Program for Mental Health Professionals
CAPS provides training opportunities for a variety of mental health pre-professionals, consisting of the following:
- American Psychological Association-accredited predoctoral psychology internship program (3 doctoral interns annually)
- Practicum for 3rd or 4th year psychology graduate students (3 students annually)
- Psychiatry rotation for 4th year psychiatry residents (intermittent)
Our training is conceptualized as a developmental-practitioner model, which builds on the knowledge and skills that trainees acquire during academic programs and prepares them for entry level positions as generalist mental health professionals. Training activities integrate didactic and experiential components to facilitate learning in the provision of clinical services to students, consultation to University personnel, and skills in offering psychoeducational programs across the University community.
