Pre- and post-doctoral clinical psychology training program
Pre-doctoral training program
The Clinical Psychology Training Program offers a one-year APA accredited predoctoral internship opportunity for students who have attended APA-accredited clinical or counseling psychology programs. Psychology interns receive training and supervised experience in individual and group therapy, parent-child interaction therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy, psychological evaluations, child welfare evaluations, intake assessments, and consultation to local agencies. The training program, which subscribes to a practitioner-scholar model, emphasizes knowledge of current research to guide assessment and intervention. Psychology interns develop competency in empirically supported treatments and make presentations on current research. The clinical psychology training program is a challenging and dynamic internship program with the goal of training ethical and competent future psychologists in the field of clinical psychology and child maltreatment who will contribute both to the welfare of society and to the profession.

Post-doctoral training program
The CAARE Center also offers postdoctoral training that is similar in nature to the predoctoral internship. In addition, postdoctoral fellows are able to obtain specialized training in a clinical area of their choice (e.g., individual and group therapy, parent-child interaction therapy, psychological evaluations, child welfare evaluations).
