Training Philosophy

Frostburg State University Counseling & Psychological Services uses a Developmental Model as the basis for its doctoral internship. A graduated model of learning is applied as we provide opportunities for interns to combine academics and practice. Candidates from scientist practitioner, practitioner, and scholar practitioner academic departments are encouraged to apply, as these candidates possess both theoretical and research based knowledge to combine with the clinical practice we offer. This integration will be achieved through supervision, training seminars, and mentoring, while on a college campus and with access and exposure to current psychological literature.

Our training is focused on the following broad training areas:

  • Intake Assessment, Diagnosis, and Case Conceptualization Intervention (Includes Individual, Group Therapy, Career Counseling, and Crisis Intervention)
  • Psychological Testing
  • Consultation
  • Outreach
  • Professionalism
  • Use of Supervision
  • Individual and Cultural Diversity
  • Ethical and Legal Standards Related to Psychology
