The practitioner-scholar model adapted by the Center is applied to training so that
interns operate in the micro-system of the training model with constant interaction,
supervision, mentoring, and modeling from professional staff. While clients' presenting
issues may range from developmental concerns to severe psychological problems, the
majority of therapy is brief. However, long-term therapy and medical consultation
and referral are on-going components of the program. Email Richard T. Scott, Ph.D.,
Assistant Director, Internship Training, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
