From the Director of Training
Dear Prospective Intern Applicant,
Welcome to the University of St. Thomas Counseling and Psychological Services Doctoral Internship webpage. I hope you enjoy browsing through our materials and that you find all the information you need to help you decide whether or not our program would be a good fit for you and your goals for internship.
Our internship was formally developed in 1992 and was fully accredited by APA in 1995. Our staff has a strong commitment to training, diversity and multiculturalism, and our mission is to provide a broad-based sequential and developmental training experience with an emphasis on learning through practical application of evidence-based practice in psychology. We believe people learn and work best in a supportive, collegial atmosphere; therefore we provide a nurturing environment in which we expect interns to stretch, take risks and grow into confident, competent, ethical psychologists. Interns characterize our strengths as providing both excellent supervision and a balanced learning environment in which they can set their goals and objectives. In addition to offering individual therapy, career and group counseling, and psychological assessment, interns enjoy choosing a variety of outreach and consultation activities, and provide supervision to practicum students. Issues of diversity, multiculturalism, and professional ethics permeate all aspects of our work.
All the best to you as you begin your internship selection process.
Deb Broderick, Psy.D., L.P.
Director of Training
