The third year Advanced Training Program offers students specialized training focusing on therapy with couples and adolescent girls, as well as experience working with individuals, and professional development guidance for transitioning into private practice. Students continue to receive substantive supervision, both individually and in case conferences. You do not need to be a graduate of our two-year internship to enroll in our Advanced Training Program.
The Advanced Training Program is appropriate for licensed and unlicensed clinicians who have had a minimum of three years of clinical practice and in-depth training. Students will receive intensive supervision, experience working with individuals, couples, and adolescent girls, and didactic training on working with couples and adolescents. Students in ATP receive support and training in marketing and professional development.
Students generally leave the ATP program with caseloads of 10 weekly client hours that they can take to move into private practice. Students graduating from ATP have said that they feel well-prepared to enter into independent practice, armed with a solid base in both individual and couples therapy and with good practical knowledge of legal, ethical, financial, and marketing issues necessary for licensed practice.
