Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of California, Los Angeles
The Nathanson Family Resilience Center within the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences of the David Geffen School Medicine, the Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior and the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital announces a postdoctoral fellowship in trauma-informed child and family psychology beginning Summer 2015. The fellowship requires a Ph.D./Psy.D. in Clinical, Counseling or School Psychology from an APA approved program, with an APA-approved internship (child specialization is required). The two-year fellowship is renewable upon satisfactory completion of the first year. Annual stipend is $42,000 and fringe benefits are very competitive.
The postdoctoral fellowship is in a major medical center in the Los Angeles area, which allows for a diverse clinical clientele. The fellow will learn skills in four areas of professional development: Evaluation, Treatment, Community Outreach/Training, and Research. Each of these areas prepares the fellow to understand the core elements of trauma-informed practice and gain skills to work across the family system and context to improve outcomes for children and families in a variety of settings including psychotherapy clinics, medical clinics, and hospital units.
