    CPMC Psychology Supervision, Didactic Instruction and Faculty

    Supervision  |  Didactic Instruction


    Intensive individual supervision is one of the strongest elements of the CPMC internship program. All clinical activities are carefully supervised with four hours of individual supervision and two hours of group supervision per week.

    Primary and Secondary Individual Supervision: Each intern meets with two CPMC on-site licensed psychologist supervisors for face-to-face individual supervision every week. As unlicensed clinicians, interns are expected to bring all cases under their care to supervision on a regular basis (caseload supervision).

    Adjunct Individual Supervision: In addition to meeting each week with their primary and secondary supervisors, interns meet weekly on an individual basis with a minimum of two additional adjunct supervisors for individual supervision. In their relationship with these supervisors, interns can spend more time talking about specific cases in greater depth. Process notes or audiotapes are used to assist in the learning process.

    Group Supervision: Each intern has at least two hours of group supervision provided on site on a weekly basis. Additional hours of group supervision may be provided on a specific training track.
