Clinical Training

The CWC’s training program offers a broad range of training and service opportunities utilizing a practitioner-scholar model. Training consists of individual and group supervision, mentoring, a training seminar/case consultation, and professional development programs.

Core training areas are:

  1. Professional practice – emphasis on diagnosis, assessment, treatment planning, and psychotherapy.
  2. Evidence based treatments – utilization of a broad range of intervention modalities including cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, systemic, dynamic and experiential techniques within a multicultural and solution-focused framework.
  3. Non-specific psychotherapy factors – establishing a relationship, utilizing therapy skills, building strengths and responsiveness, utilizing conceptualization in therapy.
  4. Supervision – emphasis on client cases while discussing individualized goals; includes consultation as well as exploring the intersections of characteristics that impact treatment access, process and outcome.

Training related to ethical and legal issues is woven throughout each core area.  While the focus is on time-limited treatment, each practicum student will work with the supervisor to identify long-term cases.  Opportunities for experiences will include areas such as psychopathology, sexual assault/trauma, crises intervention, substance abuse, career development, disability adjustment, and personality disorders.

The majority of a practicum student time is committed to direct service activities.  Each practicum student receives a minimum of two hours of supervision that includes one hour of individual supervision by a licensed psychologist and one hour of group supervision in a treatment team meeting.  Each trainee also receives a minimum of two hours of supervision that includes one hour of individual supervision by a licensed psychologist and one hour of group supervision in a treatment team meeting.  The following licensed psychologists are available to serve as supervisors:
