Postdoctoral Fellows at Counseling and Psychological Services

The Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Program at Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) is a one year, full-time paid opportunity for advanced clinical or counseling psychology trainees to specialize in College Mental Health.

Within a short-term psychodynamic treatment model, trainees conduct intake assessments and build an individual psychotherapy caseload. Under ongoing supervision, disposition decisions are made regarding treatment options within CPS/referrals. Trainees are encouraged to co-lead psychotherapy groups or workshops and to participate in outreach activities for which supervision is also provided. Trainees present cases and attend year-long didactic/clinical seminars as well as administrative and theme-specific clinical meetings. Opportunities to work with psychologists/social workers who either specialize or have specific interests in areas such as Eating Disorders, Trauma, Substance Abuse, Couple’s Therapy, Diversity and Short-Term Psychotherapy are available and encouraged.

Contact Dr. Debra Domenech for more information about the postdoctoral fellowship training program.
