The Child Trauma Research Program developed the evidence based Child-Parent Psychotherapy model. Predoctoral interns can obtain training in CPP with children birth to age six as a rotation through the APA accredited UCSF Child and Adolescent Services Multicultural Clinical Training Program Internship offered through the Division of Infant, Child, and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. In addition, the Child Trauma Research Program offers postdoctoral fellowships both on-site and in the community through our Tipping Point Initiative and partners with UC Berkeley School of Social Work to offer training to social work interns. Bilingual Spanish-speakers are particularly encouraged to apply given the population served by CTRP.

The Child Witness to Violence Project offers internship opportunities for second year graduate students in social work, psychology and other mental health programs. The internship training experience is well-suited for students with at least one year of previous internship or experience in trauma or early childhood. Applicants should have interests in working with young children (0–8) and families affected by domestic violence and/or community violence using a range of treatment modalities that include Child-Parent Psychotherapy, play therapy, family therapy, and parent guidance. We are interested in working with students who are able to devote 20–24 hours each week for a full academic year, or 16 hours a week for a full year, and are interested in working with diverse ethnic populations. Our program serves a multicultural, inner-city population and therefore, applications from students whose ethnic/cultural background and language skills reflect that of our clients are strongly encouraged.

Director of Clinical Training
Our APA accredited internship is committed to the goal of helping the psychology intern to develop competencies in the traditional core skills of clinical psychology such as psychodiagnostic testing, clinical interviewing, treatment planning, consultation, and psychotherapy, though the program is designed to be flexible enough to take into account the needs and professional goals of each trainee. LSUHSC School of Medicine offers three distinct tracks allowing for either broad/generalist training, or highly specialized/focused training in Clinical Psychology: 1) the Child/Adult track, 2) the Adult track, and 3) the Infant/Child track. The Infant/Child track intern has the opportunity to obtain highly specialized training in their work with infants, school-aged children, adolescents, and their caregivers.
