Postdoctoral Fellowships (Applications Currently Closed)

The CBC one year postdoctoral fellowship offers adherent training and supervision in comprehensive CBT and DBT for a broad range of disorders with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families in a collegial and intellectually stimulating environment. Postdoctoral fellows also co-lead evidence based CBT and DBT skills groups with our licensed clinical staff.

Beyond the core training CBT and DBT across the lifespan, post-post­doctoral fellows have the option to select among the following specialized programs:

  • Child and Adolescent Anxiety and Related Disorders Program
  • Selective Mutism Groups and Intensives
  • Parent­-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
  • Executive Functioning
  • The intensive SAGE Program for young adults
  • OCD intensive program
  • Social Anxiety Groups
  • Research and Program Evaluation

Our comprehensive training experience begins with a 5-­day CBT Comprehensive and a 5-­day DBT foundational training, led by Drs. McGinn and Miller respectively. These intensive trainings provide fundamental and advanced didactics with experiential learning to supplement and enhance the practice of learners from diverse training backgrounds.

Fellows receive five plus hours of individual and group supervision per week, and attend weekly consultation teams, didactic seminars, disorder-­specific case conferences, and invited speaker series. Fellows also supervise pre­doctoral psychology students, and receive supervision and training as supervisors. Fellows may also have the opportunity to teach and provide training at local agencies, present at national conferences, publish manuscripts, and observe school consultation provided by our clinical staff at local schools and agencies in the region.

In addition, post doctoral fellows are eligible to apply for staff positions. The first year staff position provides them with the opportunity to:

  • Receive ongoing individual clinical consultation
  • Supervise pre­doctoral psychology students
  • Develop areas of specialization and interest (e.g., starting specialized groups, giving talks in the community, co-­authoring manuscripts)
  • Participate in CBC’s growing school-­based DBT and CBT training and consultation
  • Apply for Academy of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies (A-CBT) certification (for which CBC would cover the application costs)
  • Apply for DBT Certification by DBT-­LBC. Our post­doctoral program reflects our dedication to providing evidence-­based comprehensive training that prepares psychologists for multiple career opportunities in the field. At the time of this posting, we are still the only DBT-LBC certified program in NY State.
  • Advance their training in previously chosen specialized programs or additional specialized programs.

Applicants should have completed their doctoral degree and internship by the start date, and have prior foundational experience conducting CBT with children, adolescents, adults and families. Experience or interest in DBT is highly desirable.

Interested applicants should submit electronic copies of their CV, cover letter, and three letters of reference. In their CV or cover letter, applicants should describe their CBT and DBT training (e.g. graduate coursework, workshops, clinical rotations) and experience. Candidates should also indicate their interest in any of our specialized elective programs.
