Priority Behavioral Health & Clinical Psychology Internship

Evidence-Based Practices

The following evidence-based practices (EBPs) are used in this placement setting. Interns generally have exposure to most of these EBPs though do not necessarily receive training or supervised experience in all of them. The EBPs include: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-informed care, motivational enhancement therapy (MET) for addiction, relapse prevention, and integrated substance abuse and domestic violence (SADV) therapy. EBPs also include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for clients with personality disorders. Training in EBPs occurs through site-specific clinical trainings that occur at the beginning of the internship year, ongoing supervision on EBPs by clinical supervisors, weekly staff meetings that address treatment planning, and a book and DVD library for use by all trainees and staff.

Interns attend a weekly seminar series/didactics with clinical and some forensic experts within the community. Interns will be able to observe and/or listen to presentations on diverse topics pertaining to current research on psychotherapy research, addiction research, clinical care, ethics, professionalism, interactive technologies and telehealth to name a few.

During the first semester, interns within a Clinical Psychology rotation will learn about evidenced-based care in community outpatient care clinics and review psychological testing reports.
