Supervision and Evaluation
Interns receive two hours of individual supervision each week on their individual psychotherapy cases and two hours of group case consultation with staff. Supervision of intern supervision of practicum students occurs weekly. Interns also receive supervision on their group work, supervision, and consultation and outreach programming.
Interns choose primary supervisors by matching intern and supervisor interests and preferences. Supervisors are expected to provide interns with continuous feedback on their progress via weekly supervisory meetings. The intern and supervisor establish goals and expectations at the beginning of each semester and write a formal learning contract. At mid-semester an informal evaluation is conducted between intern and supervisor. At the end of each semester, formal written and oral evaluations are conducted. We use a reciprocal evaluation process in which interns evaluate their supervisors as well as the training program each semester. Twice per year a summary of intern progress is sent to the intern's academic program training director.
