Children's Specialized Hospital

Provide description of Externship:

CSH's externship program provides a rich variety of experiences for students within the context of the nation's largest pediatric rehabilitative hospital. Externs participate in mental health outpatient treatment, which provides an opportunity for externs to evaluate and treat children and adolescents for individual, group, and family psychotherapy. Externs are provided with individual desk space, computers, phone, and voicemail. This placement allows for an opportunity to work with diverse clients, from all SES and cultures, and ranging in age from 3-18 years old. Services provided include individual, group and family psychotherapy as well as psychological testing. Psychological testing includes standard differential diagnostic batteries as well as specialized Autism evaluations. Externs will see outpatients individually as well as co-treat with their supervisor. Opportunities to become involved in Autism team evaluations, feeding team evaluations, and team treatment with members of other disciplines (e.g. physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech, etc.) are available. Supervisors' theoretical orientations are primarily cognitive-behavioral.
