The Appalachian Psychology Internship is a program of Hopewell Health Centers, a community mental health agency serving Southeastern, Ohio. In this setting, interns will provide outpatient therapy and psychological assessment, while interacting with a multi-disciplinary treatment team. Treatment is provided for a variety of conditions across the lifespan. Interns can expect to gain a breadth of experience with chronic mental health conditions and children and adolescents with severe emotional disturbance.

Crisis Stabilization Unit

Interns will provide assessment, group and individual therapy on Hopewell Health Centers’ Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU). Initially, services on the CSU will be provided by co-facilitating the Dialectical Behavioral Therapy informed group therapy throughout the week. Interns will also have the opportunity for a more intensive experience on the CSU, by providing services and being a member of the treatment team throughout the training year on Monday or Thursday afternoons. Interns may travel to satellite clinics to provide assessment services. However, travel reimbursement will be provided.

The mission of the Appalachian Psychology Internship is to produce graduates who are prepared for the entry-level practice of professional psychology in rural areas
