Provide description of Externship:

This is a one-year, 16 hour per week advanced training opportunity focused on hospital-based outpatient clinic work with children and adolescents ages 5-17 and their families. The goal of the externship is to gain broad-based experience providing therapy to underserved youth in an urban hospital setting. Four OPD externs will be recruited for the 2019-2020 training year.



Externs carry approximately five to six individual and/or family therapy cases, across the developmental and diagnostic spectrum, and may co-lead one child/adolescent or parent group with a staff member. One hour of individual supervision with a licensed psychologist is provided weekly, and an extern may also meet individually with a postdoctoral fellow serving as a secondary supervisor. Externs participate in a weekly extern group along with Parent-Infant Center extern(s) that is led by the externship coordinator; this group involves didactics taught by postdoctoral fellows, case conferences, and open-ended discussions about professional development and other topics. Staff members at CFI-OPD vary in their theoretical orientation, and this externship welcomes all applicants with regards to orientation.
