In addition to the generalist emphasis of our program, interns will have the ability to develop and hone a specialization in an area of interest. This specialization can encompass individual clinical interventions, community outreach initiatives and working collaboratively with other organizations on campus. Areas for specialization are largely designed by the intern in consultation with the training director and senior staff members who have the experience and availability to provide supervision in an area of interest. Potential specialty training areas might include Multiculturalism, Mindfulness, Outreach, Group Therapy, or Body Image/Disordered Eating Issues.
This opportunity to focus on an area of specialization will occur in the spring and summer of the internship year. This allows the Psychology Training Committee to assess intern competencies prior to engaging in opportunities. Moreover, this allows interns to acclimate to CAPS, UNC, and the internship during the fall semester.
Please note that we are not able to offer a Sport Psychology specialization in 2023-2024.
