Pre-Doctoral Clinicians
The BTPC offers state-of-the art training in psychological service including individual and group psychotherapy, assessment, consultation and report writing. The BTPC has formulated its training curriculum around a vertical team training structure. Each team consists of graduate students at all levels of training and either one or two faculty supervisors. Each student participates on at least one vertical team that meets for two hours per week. The vertical team is composed of a faculty supervisor(s), a student with a clinical placement at the BTPC (3rd and/or 4th year), a second year student, and a first year student.
Although the BTPC currently has six vertical teams, this number can vary annually, depending on the precise number of students accepted into the BTPC in a given year. A primary feature of the vertical team meeting is case supervision. Additionally, professional affairs and ethics associated with specific cases are also discussed during these meetings. Standardized clinical assessment and mental health record keeping are also emphasized.
In order to receive additional supervision time, students with a placement at the BTPC are also provided with an individual supervisor. Students meet with their individual supervisor on a weekly basis. All information discussed in the vertical team and individual supervision is kept strictly confidential.
