APA Accredited Doctoral Internship
The goal of our psychology internship program is to prepare doctoral students in clinical and counseling psychology to provide psychological services in mental health, managed care, and private sector settings. Our model is the practitioner-scholar model with a generalist focus and opportunities for specialization. During the internship year, interns are expected to increase their knowledge of clinical psychology and their ability to intervene in ways that are sensitive to the level of the client’s psychopathology, ethnic and cultural background, and legal or ethical factors. Community Reach Center offers a doctoral internship program that is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) for graduate students who have completed all coursework necessary for a doctorate in clinical or counseling psychology.
