PSYC 8882 - Internship


(12—3 cr. per term for 4 terms cr.) The internship is a supervised training experience that prepares students to successfully function in the role of a professional psychologist and/or counselor. Internship experiences emphasize the integration of theory and research through applied practice in a variety of settings and situations. Supervising psychologists mentor interns through a professional relationship. Students learn how to effectively use and understand a supervisory relationship, engage in critical thinking, conduct assessments, implement evidence-based interventions, evaluate intervention efficacy, engage in professional consultation, and function within professional ethical standards. Interns also participate in didactic training. Internship is the final component of advanced applied professional training for students in licensure specializations prior to graduation. Students must secure internships appropriate to their specialization, and the internship must meet the current requirements of the state psychology board to which the student intends to apply. A total of 2,000 hours is required. Internships may be designed as a part-time or a full-time experience (minimum of 15 hours per week) but must be completed within a 2-year time frame. Students also participate in an online classroom experience. (Prerequisite(s): PSYC 8871, completion of the internship application, and approval of the field training coordinator.)
