Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, Metropolitan Regional Diagnostic and Treatment Center (RDTC) Game-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (GB-CBT) Externship Program in Child Abuse and Maltreatment

Provide description of Externship:

The Game-Based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (GBCBT) Track offers students the opportunity to learn the GB-CBT approach in depth and to apply it in both individual and group therapy contexts. GB-CBT externs carry individual therapy cases, co-lead groups, conduct psychosocial evaluations of children suspected to have been physically and/or sexually abused and/or neglected, and conduct pre- and post-assessments of treatment cases. Externs receive weekly individual and group supervision with a licensed psychologist trained in a variety of trauma-informed treatments. In addition, externs are also provided with didactics to educate them about issues relevant to trauma and maltreatment. After successful completion of two GB-CBT individual therapy treatment cases, students will be able to utilize other therapeutic approaches including Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), sychodynamic therapy, systems, and integrative approaches.
