Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Program

The Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Program at Counseling and Psychological Services is a one-year, full-time, paid opportunity for advanced clinical or counseling psychology trainees to specialize in college mental health.

Within a short-term psychodynamic treatment model, trainees conduct intake assessments and build an individual psychotherapy caseload. Under ongoing supervision, disposition decisions are made regarding treatment options within the program and referrals to outside resources.

Trainees co-lead psychotherapy groups and workshops and have the option to participate in outreach activities for which supervision is also provided. Trainees present cases and attend year-long didactic and clinical seminars as well as administrative and themed clinical meetings. Opportunities to work with psychologists and social workers who either specialize or have interests in areas such as eating disorders, trauma, substance abuse, couple’s therapy, diversity, acculturation, sexual and gender identity concerns, and veterans’ concerns are available and encouraged.

Contact Dr. Debra Domenech for more information about the postdoctoral fellowship training program.
