Annual Externship

The Hallowell Center in New York offers a one-year pre-doctoral externship to a candidate demonstrating excellent diagnostic, psychotherapeutic (CBT), and/or neuropsychological assessment abilities in the area of ADHD and related disorders.

The ideal candidate has completed relevant coursework and/or practica emphasizing evidence-based treatments for anxiety, depression, ADHD, ODD, and/or ASD, including but not limited to individual CBT, parent training, executive function/organizational skills training, and/or school observation and consultation. This externship is best suited to a doctoral student with a focus on children/adolescents, and preferably with previous experience diagnosing ADHD and/or performing neuropsychological or clinical assessments.

The trainee would be tasked with providing evidence-based intervention (e.g., individual CBT, parent training, and/or executive function/organizational skills training), school observation/consultation, and possibly diagnostic and/or neuropsychological assessment to children and adolescents (and possibly adults) who present to our clinic. There may also be opportunities for shadowing clinicians and observing or participating in therapy groups and workshops. A majority of our patients carry diagnoses of ADHD, and many have comorbidity.

At least one hour of weekly individual supervision will be provided, and the extern will be invited to attend, and will present at, Wednesday clinical meetings, which include case conferences, didactics, and other administrative issues relevant to group practice. These meetings offer a range of didactic material and will cover a wide range of topics related to psychopathology and clinical interventions, including CBT, DBT, FBT, ACT, PMT, schema therapy, couples therapy, pharmacology and executive functioning skills coaching.

Further, opportunities will be provided for the extern to observe and co-lead groups therapy. The extern will perform the externship over two weekdays of his/her choosing.
