Doctoral Training Program

The Southwest Behavioral & Health Services Training Institute’s Doctoral Psychology Training program is committed to developing well-rounded psychologists who have an interest in delivering strengths-based services in a public behavioral health setting. On-site experience is balanced by weekly colloquia, as well as individual and group supervision that provide an excellent venue for learning and professional development. The trainees receive a wide range of training experiences during the course of their internship year. They have ample opportunities to gain profession-wide competencies including professional values, ethical and legal standards, individual and cultural diversity, research, interpersonal skills, intervention, assessment, interdisciplinary skills, consultation, and supervision.
