Psychology Externship


Predoctoral Externship in Evidence-Based Treatments

Cognitive and Behavioral Consultants (CBC) is an evidence-based clinical and training center composed of highly skilled clinicians, educators and researchers who specialize in CBT and DBT. Externs receive evidence-based training and supervision in treating a broad range of disorders across the lifespan. Externs have the opportunity to work with individual clients, couples and families. Externs also co-lead one or more CBT groups and/or DBT skills training groups with highly trained therapists/supervisors.

This externship experience includes a 5-day CBT Comprehensive Training and a 5-day DBT Foundational training led by Drs. McGinn and Miller respectively. Externs receive multiple hours of individual and group supervision per week, weekly DBT consultation team, monthly CBT consultation team, didactic seminars on CBT and DBT, disorder-specific case conferences and a lecture series in which nationally and internationally renowned speakers are invited.

Externs have the opportunity to join either our Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) Team, Child and Adolescent Anxiety and Related Disorders (CAARD) Team, or SAGE Intensive Young Adult Team.

Additionally, externs are often invited to assist with our intensive treatment programs for OCD and Selective Mutism.
