Predoctoral Internship in Psychology
Application Deadline: November 5, 2012 at midnight for the next internship year of August 1, 2013 to July 31, 2014
Greetings from the Training Director
Thank you for your interest in our predoctoral internship program. The University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Counseling and Consultation Services (C&CS) offers four full-time predoctoral internships in professional psychology. Our internship site has been accredited by the American Psychological Association since 1996. We have a multidisciplinary staff of psychologists, social workers, counselors, psychiatric nurses, psychiatrists, and other specialized staff. While the entire senior staff contributes to training, all primary supervisors of interns are three years post-licensure psychologists and meet the most stringent standards of supervision for the state of Wisconsin.
We are committed to excellence in training at our site and work with you in making this a successful experience. Using a developmental training model, we help you develop competence in all aspects of clinical work (individual, group, case management, and referral), crisis response services, development of self as supervisor, and provision of liaison and consultant services to university agencies. We are a learn-by-doing internship site, using the practitioner-scholar model of training. Across all areas, we focus on the provision of ethical service delivery within a brief treatment model. Also, it is critical to us as an agency to provide culturally relevant services to diverse groups of people and to help interns gain ongoing multicultural competencies. Finally, we believe in inclusiveness in our system and past interns have provided feedback that annually allows us to improve the training program here.
C&CS is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). This internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC policy that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept, or use ranking-related information from the intern applicant. We use the APPIC Application for Psychology Internship (AAPI) Online Form. For complete instructions, see our Application and Selection Procedures.
I hope that you will give serious consideration to applying to our site. Take a look at what we offer, how we do what we do, and whether our program fits your goals and objectives for the future. Our application deadline is November 5, 2012 at midnight. I wish you all the best in your search process and, if you have any specific questions after browsing our website, please do not hesitate to contact me.
