Internship Program Admissions

Briefly describe in narrative form important information to assist potential applicants in assessing their likely fit with your program. This description must be consistent with the program's policies on intern selection and practicum and academic preparation requirements:

The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center Internship in Clinical Psychology is located in the Department of Psychology & Wellness in Evansville, Indiana. We are excited to offer an excellent training opportunity, with an emphasis on child clinical and developmental psychology. The program is designed as a 12-month, full-time, pre-doctoral internship, which will begin on July 1 and end on June 30, and provide 2,000 hours of clinical training. The focus of the internship is twofold. One is to provide the highest level of education and training utilizing the scientist-practitioner model, where interns will engage in evaluation, therapy, assessment, consultation, supervising, and research services utilizing empirically-supported means across a variety of experiences and modalities. Two, significant emphasis is placed on promoting flourishing, innovation, collegiality, and personal/professional balance, as it is recognized that this is key to long-term stability for professionals, especially in preventing burnout and maximizing career satisfaction.

 Does the program require that applicants have a minimum number of hours of the following at time of application? If Yes, indicate how many:

 Total Direct Contact Intervention Hours  NO
 Total Direct Contact Assessment Hours  NO

 Describe any other required minimum criteria used to screen applicants:

Applicants from APA accredited programs from clinical, counseling, or school psychology are required. It is strongly recommended that applicants have strong backgrounds in child clinical, school, or pediatric psychology, especially with assessment skills; however, students with generalist graduate training will be considered for admission. Completion of all coursework is required. Although a minimum of 500 AAPI hours (intervention plus assessment) is preferred, as well as 600 hours of experience for applicants from school psychology programs, due to COVID-19, applications will be considered for those who don't meet this minimum threshold. The dissertation proposal must have been conducted and approved prior to the start of internship.
