We offer a collegial and intellectually stimulating environment, adherent training, and supervision in comprehensive CBT and DBT for a broad range of disorders with children, adolescents, and adults. Post docs have the opportunity to choose among a variety of optional clinical and research tracks. Among these, include specialized clinical and research training and experience in Parent ­Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), intensive OCD treatment, selective mutism, social anxiety group treatment, executive functioning coaching, Encompass and Craft program for co-occurring disorders, and an intensive CBT and DBT program (The SAGE Programs) for young adults who require an intensive and/or higher level of care.

Postdoctoral fellows conduct individual, couples, family, and group therapy, and co-­lead one or more CBT groups and/or DBT skills training groups with highly trained therapists/supervisors. This comprehensive training experience begins with a 5-­day CBT Comprehensive and a 5-­day DBT foundational training, which provides fundamentals and advanced didactic and experiential learning.

Fellows receive five-plus hours of individual and group supervision per week and attend weekly consultation teams, didactic seminars, disorder-­specific case conferences, a grand rounds invited colloquia series, and a variety of other program team meetings.
