POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, University of Michigan.
The University of Michigan’s University Center for the Child and Family (UCCF) is currently accepting applications for 1 clinical child and adolescent psychology postdoctoral fellowship position, to begin in Sept., 2015. UCCF is one of three centers housed at the University of Michigan’s Mary A. Rackham Institute (formerly the Institute for Human Adjustment). UCCF is a multidisciplinary, training-focused, child/adolescent/family outpatient center. The training prepares fellows for licensure through a one year, full time program, with an option for a second year by mutual consent.
Advanced training is offered in 1) assessment and diagnosis (including ADHD/LD and Autism-Spectrum diagnostic evaluation), 2) evidence-based psychotherapy interventions, and 3) clinical teaching and supervision. Infused throughout the fellowship are additional experiences in consultation and interdisciplinary collaboration, multicultural competencies, professional development, ethics, and leadership/administrative skills. Postdocs provide direct clinical service with supervision from expert clinicians, participate in a core curriculum of seminars and clinical conferences, develop supervision and teaching skills via work with trainees across multiple disciplines, consult with other professionals including our educational specialist and psychiatrist, and have opportunities to engage in community outreach and program development. UCCF’s post-doctoral training program is particularly focused on preparing new psychologists for roles in clinical teaching, supervision, and administrative leadership.
UCCF favors a developmental integrative clinical approach to case conceptualization, incorporating interpersonal, family systems, cognitive/behavioral, and biological/psychiatric elements, as well as an overall multicultural perspective. UCCF serves a diverse array of children and families. Evidence-based interventions are emphasized, with faculty expertise in: early childhood interventions; cognitive-behavioral interventions for youth depression, anxiety, and trauma; parent behavior management training; emotion-regulation and mindfulness; psycho-educational testing and school consultation; family therapy approaches; and evaluation/intervention for youth on the Autism Spectrum. The University of Michigan provides a rich and exciting scholarly environment with frequent seminars, invited lectures, and opportunities for interaction and collaboration with faculty across disciplines and departments.
