The community mental health center and psychology internship training

Journal Article

journal abstract: Training centers are moving toward incorporating community mental health into their programs. This article describes the community component of a medical-school-based psychology internship program. The community program is based in three rural counties and affords the intern preplacement training as well as direct field training. The program involves one day a week for 12 months in one setting and a second day a week for three months in another. Field training focuses on crisis intervention and short-term treatment approaches, individual, group, and agency consultation, formal and informal community education experiences, and both program development and program evaluation.
