Description of Externship

The externship at the Manhattan Center for Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is an opportunity to get experience using CBT in a private practice setting with good supervision. We have two tracks: an emotion regulation track and an anxiety track. Please specify in your letter whether you'd be interested in one of these tracks, or either. Externs on both tracks participate in our renowned weekly didactics seminar, which focuses on improving technique of CBT skills as well as applying current empirical and theoretical research to our clinical work. Externs will work a minimum of two days. Some evenings will be required, but there is some flexibility with days of the week. We encourage applications from students with significant familiarity and experience with cognitive-behavioral theory and clinical applications. This placement is good for students who would like to add to their experience base applying cognitive-behavioral treatment to "real world" clinical populations, as well as for students who would like to get some experience working in a clinical private practice setting.
