Interns are placed at the outpatient clinic which provides a broad array of services to individuals, groups and families. Children and adolescents present with a variety of psychiatric, educational and psychosocial difficulties as well as family issues. Interns provide primarily family and may provide individual and group therapy. They may also coordinate and present at parent psychoeducation groups. In addition, interns conduct initial assessments through the evaluation unit.
DIDACTIC SEMINARS AND CASE CONFERENCES
Interns participate in a curriculum of seminar courses including child and adolescent psychopathology, psychopharmacology, topics in child and adolescent psychotherapy and family therapy. Child Psychiatry Grand Rounds are given monthly. Additional optional classes are available within the Department.
Interns receive 1 hour of individual supervision each week on their treatment cases. Supervisors are trained in family therapy. They may also receive group supervision focusing on family therapy.
The internship is currently open MFT students at Mercy College. Prospective students should contact their school's field placement office.
