The NMSUCC training staff is highly committed to training and supervision. Interns receive quality supervision from training staff who work hard to foster a safe and supportive environment that promotes interns’ growth and development as professionals and wherein they are encouraged to challenge themselves to participate in self-reflection, processing and integrating their experience. We believe that learning is a developmental process. The supervision interns receive along with the opportunities for learning that are provided in seminars and other experiential training experiences, seek to build on the knowledge and skills interns have acquired through their coursework, practica, and research pursuits in their psychology doctoral programs. Assessment of the developmental level of interns within each of the competency areas is ongoing in supervision with the over-riding goal being to assist interns in becoming ethically responsible professional psychologists who are culturally sensitive and clinically competent.
Supervision of Couples/Individual Therapy
Interns receive two hours of individual supervision per week for their work with couples and individual clients from licensed psychologists who are expected to perform their supervisory responsibilities in an ethical and professional manner.
Supervision of Group Therapy
Interns are expected to co-facilitate at least one group with a senior staff member during the internship year. All interns receive 30 minutes of individual supervision on a weekly basis from the senior staff co-facilitator. In the spring when interns might co-facilitate a group with another intern, supervision is provided by the interns’ primary supervisor (individual supervisor for entire internship year), secondary supervisor (individual supervisor for half of internship year), or other professional staff member.
