Our internship is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association and is based on a practitioner-scholar model and apprenticeship process of intern training in which staff and interns work collaboratively. The supervisor/mentor serves to facilitate the learning of clinical and therapeutic skills, and advancement in psychology as a profession. During the first few weeks of internship, interns and supervisors share tasks such as intake and emergency coverage, with interns assuming more responsibility and autonomy as they are ready. Other shared activities may also include co-therapy and co-facilitating workshops and outreach activities. Although the internship program is relatively structured, there is enough flexibility to individualize training activities to meet interns' specific needs and interests. Our staff supports a culture of inclusion and fully endorses APA's statement "Preparing Professional Psychologists to Serve a Diverse Public" (March 2013).
