Training

The training program provides a minimum of two hours per week in didactic activities such as case conferences, seminars, workshops and in-service training. Pre-doctoral psychology interns are required to participate in a minimum of four hours per week of didactic activities.

A schedule of activities is developed each year in keeping with the trainees/interns’ interests and requirements. Trainees/interns are also expected to attend regularly scheduled administrative and clinical meetings with all other team members. Some examples of training and workshop opportunities available the past several years to interns have included:

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
  • Dual Diagnosis: Mental Health and Addictions
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Family Systems Theories and Family Therapy
  • Ethics in Clinical Practice
  • Psychopharmacology
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Multicultural Issues in Counseling and Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy

AACI also offers training in peer supervision and provides additional support as interns learn the skills involved with functioning in a supervisor’s role.

Trainings in neuropsychological testing are also offered as trainees/interns will have a chance to administer a wide variety of testing batteries and formulate integrated assessment reports.
