Our postdoctoral fellowship program in clinical child and adolescent psychology offers fellows training with a strong academic approach that emphasizes evidence-based treatment across multiple settings. Fellows receive their primary training in therapy and psychological testing in a community mental health outpatient setting. They also have secondary training opportunities providing manualized, brief CBT for depression and anxiety in a pediatric integrated behavioral health clinic, social skills groups at the MIND Institute, or conducting school-based mental health (SBMH) services.
