Training Description: Landstrom Center is committed to training the next-generation of psychologists to the highest standard. Our training program provides a guided, clinical experience in which externs are given the opportunity to function in various roles associated with professional psychology and neuropsychology. The two major roles emphasized are those of psychotherapist and psychodiagnostician. The development and/or refinement of specific skills and competencies associated with these two major clinical roles form the basis for our program’s training program.
Our training philosophy maintains that an effective practicum requires a balance of clinical experience, supervision, and didactic training. To this end, our staff strive to foster a supportive, educational environment that provides progressive clinical exposure within a framework of collaborative supervision that simultaneously encourages self-awareness and critical thinking in order to facilitate professional growth. Landstrom Center's training program is guided by the practitioner-scholar model, where professional development occurs through experiential learning via provision of clinical services combined with scholarly inquiry. Through their clinical work and training activities, externs will become familiar with all aspects of clinical practice, with the end goal being the acquisition of applied functional skills, scientific and ethical knowledge, and professional attitudes to help begin to prepare them for competent professional practice. All practicum students will also receive extensive, formal didactic training in neuropsychological and related disorders.
Availability: Landstrom Center offers training in a 24 hours per week program format. Students are expected to be on site on 3 days. Friday is mandatory for didactics, seminars and group supervision. In collaboration with their supervisor, students will be assigned their remaining 2 on-site days of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.  Diagnostic students are required to begin their on-site days at 8:30am for these reasons. Students are required to attend mandatory orientation sessions during the month of July.  Orientation for 2019-2020 Students is tentatively scheduled for the following dates: Wednesday July 10th,  Friday July 12th, Monday July 15th, Wednesday July 17th, and Friday July 19th.
