Program Philosophy and Training Model

The aim of the internship program is to prepare interns for general practice in clinical psychology as informed by scholarly inquiry, with a thorough grounding in psychological theory, assessment, diagnosis, intervention, supervision, consultation, professional values and attitudes, communication and interpersonal skills, and research. The internship program seeks to teach interns the theories and concepts of cultural and individual diversity to be applied throughout their practice of professional psychology.

The Goodman Psychological Services Center (GPSC) Doctoral Internship Program in Clinical Psychology is based on the practitioner-scholar model, a method of professional practice and scholarly inquiry that is based on the science of psychology. The training model of the program is consistent with the mission of the PsyD Program in Clinical Psychology at Albizu University (AU), which emphasizes the importance of utilizing best practices as well as scholarly inquiry. It is expected that, upon completion of the program, interns will have satisfied all the internship requirements for state licensure as a psychologist and will be prepared to enter a postdoctoral residency program in clinical psychology.
