The postdoctoral fellowship focuses on training competent clinical psychologists to provide evidence-based therapeutic interventions and state of the art assessment. The fellowship is oriented to psychologists with solid clinical training and experience, who are seeking a career providing psychotherapy and assessment in an outpatient setting. Fellows will receive broad training in providing evidence-based clinical interventions to a diverse patient population. Fellows will also participate in didactics, clinical supervision with staff, and group consultation meetings.
Applicants must be post-masters from an APA-approved graduate program in Clinical, Counseling or School Psychology. The ideal candidate would have a strong interest in a permanent staff position following the completion of a one year postdoctoral fellowship.
Fellows will have the opportunity to specialize in one of five training tracks:
Therapy - Child, Adolescent, and Family
Therapy - Adult
Therapy - Generalist
• IBH fellows will be physically located at one of our integrated care sites and field referrals from physicians and other providers (e.g., nurse practitioners) within that practice.
• IBH fellows will provide consultation to providers, brief assessment, evidence-based intervention, and triage to other LifeStance departments or community resources.
• IBH fellows will have the opportunity to learn about the model of integrated primary care and how to work effectively on a multidisciplinary team.
• Successful fellows will enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, be able to think on their feet, communicate clinical information efficiently, and enjoy working with a wide range of clinical presentations.
