Applications for the 2021-2022 Postdoctoral Fellowship year now open! Deadline is December 4th, 2020.

CBC invites applications for a one­ year clinical post­doctoral fellowship beginning August 30, 2021. We offer a collegial and intellectually stimulating environment and an outstanding opportunity to receive training and supervision in comprehensive CBT and DBT for a broad range of disorders with children, adolescents, and adults, and experience working with individual clients, groups, couples, and families. We also offer specialized training with certified trainers in many evidence-­based treatments including but not limited to Parent ­Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), intensive OCD treatment, social anxiety group treatment, executive functioning coaching, and an intensive DBT program (The SAGE Program) to meet the needs of young adults who require a higher level of care, and more.

Postdoctoral fellows conduct individual, couples, family, and group therapy, and co-­lead one or more CBT groups and/or DBT skills training groups with highly trained therapists/supervisors. This comprehensive training experience includes a 5-­day CBT foundational and a 5-­day DBT foundational training at our Schwartzberg Training Center, several hours of individual and group supervision per week, weekly DBT consultation team, monthly CBT consultation team, didactic seminars on CBT and DBT, disorder-­specific case conferences, and a lecture series in which nationally and internationally renowned speakers are invited. Fellows also supervise pre­doctoral psychology students, and receive supervision and training as supervisors. Fellows may also have the opportunity to present at local agencies and may have the opportunity to observe school consultation trainings provided by CBC trainers at local schools and agencies in the region. CBC has many ongoing research and data collection projects that fellows can participate in if they are meeting other program requirements.

Post-post­doctoral Fellows have the option of participating in the following specialized programs:

  • Parent­Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
  • Trauma Treatment Program
  • Neuropsychological Testing
  • Executive Functioning
  • The SAGE Program for young adults
  • OCD intensive program
  • Social Anxiety Group program

In addition, post­doctoral fellows will be eligible to apply for an optional 2nd year of supervision and training as a licensed psychologist. This role gives fellows the opportunity to:

  • Supervise pre­doctoral psychology students
  • Participate in CBC’s growing school-­based DBT and CBT training and consultation
  • Develop areas of specialization and interest (e.g., starting specialized groups, giving talks in the community, co-­authoring manuscripts)
  • Work towards Academy of Cognitive Therapy certification (for which CBC would cover the application costs)
  • Work towards DBT Certification by DBT­LBC. Our post­doctoral program reflects our dedication to providing evidence-­based comprehensive training that prepares psychologists for multiple career opportunities in the field

The post­doctoral training program at CBC is an outstanding opportunity to join our cohesive team of professionals who train and supervise graduate students, post­doctoral fellows, professionals in the community and at schools, agencies, and organization.

Applicants should have completed their doctoral degree and an APA approved internship by the start date, and have prior experience conducting CBT with children, adolescents, adults and families. Experience or interest in DBT is highly desirable. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package. Interested applicants should submit electronic copies of their CV, cover letter, and three letters of reference to apply@cbc­ (Attn.: Chad Brice, Ph.D.). In their CV or cover letter, applicants should describe their CBT (and if relevant, DBT) training (e.g. graduate coursework, workshops, clinical rotations). Applicants should also include information regarding the breadth and depth of their CBT and DBT clinical experiences (e.g. age ranges, presenting problems, supervisors, as well as length and type of supervision). The subject line should read: “CBC Clinical Postdoc Application.” General email inquiries are also welcome via email, on the phone, or in person at the ABCT convention (through pre­arrangement). Application review will commence immediately with invitation for interviews occurring on a rolling basis. The final deadline for applications is December 4, 2020.
