IUPUI’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers a doctoral internship program in Health Service Psychology that provides supervised training experiences in an urban university counseling center.
The aim of our internship training program is to adequately prepare doctoral interns to demonstrate competence in all areas of Health Service Psychology working with young adults and adults in an outpatient setting. At the end of internship, interns are expected to be prepared to enter the workforce as a postdoctoral resident or entry-level professional within a university counseling center or community mental health center. Opportunities for research, comprehensive testing, and provision of supervision are provided on internship, but the training program offers greater experiential learning and training activities in the remaining competency areas within psychology.
CAPS interns participate in individual and group psychotherapy, psychoeducational assessments (ADHD, LD, and ASD), outreach and consultation, on-call/crisis intervention, intakes, relationship counseling (as available), and supervision of practicum students.
Training activities include clinical supervision, group supervision, testing/assessment supervision, supervision of supervision, case consultation, training seminars, and rotating development meetings in the areas of multiculturalism, outreach, an intern project, and training.
