School Psychology Internship Training Program
Manhattan/Westchester NY

The CBC Institute of Professionals is proud to offer The School Psychology Internship Training Program. This Program is designed for graduate students in psychology with experience in CBT and DBT with an interest in disseminating these evidence-based treatments into school settings.

The CBC School Psychology Internship Program is designed for graduate students in psychology with experience in CBT and DBT with interest in disseminating these evidence-based treatments into school settings. This program provides students with supervision from several licensed psychologists including a certified school psychologist in order to meet their graduate doctoral program requirements. This internship program also provides students with supervision in DBT and CBT in order to be eligible to receive certification by the Linehan Board of Certification in DBT and the Academy of Cognitive Therapy for CBT.

The following is a list of different experiences that this internship program will provide to students over the course of the 12-month program:

  • Individual CBT and DBT therapy with children, adolescents and adults – Each psychology intern will be required to provide at least 10-12 hours of individual therapy per week.
     
  • In addition, the intern will co-lead two therapy skills groups using CBT or DBT.  The intern would be assigned to groups that would likely be used in schools and eventually taught by the intern to school staff.
  • School-Based Training in DBT and CBT – Interns will first shadow CBC school consultants during their 3-4 day CBT and DBT workshops in the schools as well as shadow the orientation/kickoff trainings and half-day implementation meetings. After shadowing a couple of trainings, the intern would be given increasing amounts of content to teach school staff. The CBC supervisor would observe and provide immediate feedback on the intern’s performance.
  • School-Based Consultation in DBT and CBT would follow after the aforementioned training was completed. The intern would shadow the CBC consultant and observe how to effectively train and consult to elementary, middle and high school personnel. The goal for these hours would be to learn to provide direct consultation to schools about how to effectively adopt and adapt evidence-based therapies in their schools.
  • School observations will be conducted by intern for various CBC patients based in a variety of Westchester, Rockland, NYC schools. The goal of these observations will be to take data on specific target behaviors and to speak with school staff to ensure generalization of skills across environments.
  • Neuro/psychological testing batteries (approximately 6-8) will be administered, scored, interpreted and providing feedback to youth and their caregivers, under the careful supervision of our licensed neuropsychologist. Recommendations will be made to the family and the school.
  • Executive functioning coaching (e.g., planning/organization/study skills, etc) will be administered to two students per week in need of this service and supervised by licensed psychologist with expertise in this program.
  • Research and scholarly activity time will be given to help with skills specific to school-based research and implementation science research as it relates to schools. Potential manuscripts, posters, and conference presentations may derive from this experience.

Psychology interns can be provided with additional experience in other areas at their request, as long as it falls within the scope of services provided by CBC. This is a full-time paid internship that will run from July through June. Additionally, as required by specific doctoral programs, this internship will require a minimum number of hours engaged in school-based work; CBC can accommodate at least 40% of the intern’s time devoted to school-based work (i.e., trainings, consultations, observations, research, testing, executive functioning). Psychology interns will receive a minimum of two hours a week of supervision by a licensed, doctoral-level psychologist and a certified school psychologist. Team meetings and peer supervision meetings will be held for several hours each week to foster greater fidelity to the evidence based therapies administered.
