Program Overview

As part of their experience at CCCPS, incoming interns get direct service experience in individual and group therapy, triages and intakes, crisis intervention, the provision of supervision, and consultation and outreach to the WVU community. 

The internship program seeks to help develop nine profession wide competencies as part of an intern’s preparation for practice as a health service psychologist (HSP). These nine profession wide competencies are:

  1.   Evaluation and dissemination of research
  2.   Ethical and legal standards
  3.   Individual and cultural diversity
  4.   Professional values and attitudes
  5.   Communication and interpersonal skills
  6.   Assessment
  7.   Intervention
  8.   Supervision
  9.   Consultation and interprofessional/interdisciplinary skills

Training in and evaluation of competency in each of these areas occurs in the context of a range of supervisory and educational activities including:

  • Two hours of individual supervision per week.
  • A weekly Assessment seminar.
  • A weekly Supervision of Supervision seminar.
  • A Rotating Seminar, about once every other week, on a variety of clinical topics facilitated by in-house and community experienced professionals.
  • A Multicultural Supervision Seminar three times per month.
  • A Crisis Seminar twice per month.
  • A Professional Development seminar three times per semester, usually beginning half-way through the fall semester to help transition to professional life after internship.
  • Work in an area of emphasis (optional).
