Pre-Doctoral Internship in Clinical Psychology

Group Skills

Group Facilitation – Groups are designed to meet the clients’ needs on a variety of levels. Groups include educational, skills groups, group therapy, diversional (recreational), community resource, spiritual, co-occurring and personal growth groups. Groups are primarily held on the treatment mall but each unit also has unit-based groups for those clients who are not able to attend the mall for security or clinical reasons.

  • During each six-month rotation, the intern will co-facilitate a minimum of one psycho-educational group on the Treatment Mall. Interns will research curriculum for a psycho-educational group and then lead that group for a 12-week group cycle.
  • While on the acute civil rotation interns will co-facilitate a “focus” group and on the forensic rotation they will co-facilitate the “restoration to competency” group.
