Postdoc hero

The CBC Institute of Professionals is proud to offer a one-year Postdoctoral Fellowship, with a option for a second year, working in conjunction with the CBC Clinical and Wellness Center.

Postdoctoral fellows will conduct individual, family and group therapies, and co-lead one or more CBT groups and/or DBT skills training groups with highly trained therapists/supervisors. Fellows receive several hours of individual and group supervision per week coupled with participation in a weekly DBT therapist consultation team and didactic seminars on CBT and DBT.

This comprehensive training experience also includes monthly CBT consultation team, disorder-specific case conferences, and a lecture series in which nationally and internationally renowned speakers are invited from the CBT and DBT communities. Fellows also supervise pre-doctoral psychology students and receive supervision and training in this area. Post-doctoral fellows participate in core rotations in outpatient CBT and DBT with children, adolescents, and adults with options for electives in the following areas:

  • School consultation (CBT and DBT)
  • Research and publishing
  • Web-based outcomes monitoring and training
  • Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
  • Trauma Treatment Program
  • Training toward Academy of Cognitive Therapy certification (year 2)
  • Training toward DBT Certification by DBT-LBC (year 2)

Optional Second Year

In addition, post-doctoral fellows will be eligible to apply for an optional second year of supervision and training as a licensed psychologist. This role will entail the following (in addition to direct clinical service):

  • Supervising pre-doctoral psychology student
  • Further developing areas of specialization and interest (e.g., starting specialized groups, giving talks in the community, co-authoring manuscripts, school consultation)
  • Optional training towards DBT Certification by DBT-LBC
  • Optional training towards Academy of Cognitive Therapy certification (for which CBC would cover the application costs).

This addition to our post-doctoral program reflects both the expansion of our practice, and our dedication to providing comprehensive training that prepares psychologists for multiple career opportunities in the field. This is an outstanding opportunity to join our cohesive team of clinicians who are dedicated to clinical training and to providing evidence-based services. This is a yearly program that begins the end of August.
