HUMC Pediatric Psychology Internship Program Details

Program Details

Proposed Internship Schedule for Educational Seminars and Case Conferences 2021-2022 The following provides a general schedule for Case Conferences and Educational Seminars throughout the year. Each week, the mental health staff convenes to review evaluations for the day and relevant clinical focuses. Staff reconvenes later to discuss each of the evaluations, information gathered, clinical support or lack thereof related to child maltreatment, impact or harm upon youth, individual and family risk factors and appropriate recommendations. While Interns are not directly conducting parenting evaluations of risk, these case conferences serve to provide a framework for understanding risk assessment, as related to both the individual parent and the family system.  Below is a guideline of topics to be addressed over the course of the internship year during Educational Seminars.
