Priority Behavioral Health & Clinical Psychology Internship


Interns receive intensive training and supervision to assure that they are adhering to best practice procedures and are competent in administering interventions to substance abusing forensic populations. Each week, all cases currently being evaluated are reviewed and discussed by faculty and interns together. Final dispositions and treatment recommendations are determined by utilizing the experience and clinical judgment of our multidisciplinary team. Two hours of individual supervision are provided weekly. Formal evaluations are completed quarterly, (4) times, during the year and serve as a review of progress on training goals and core competencies.
