Psychology is one of several professional disciplines within the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Presently, our staff consists of 11 full-time and five part-time psychologists. All staff psychologists hold clinical appointments in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. The entire psychology staff participates in the internship program, both through direct supervision and presentation of seminars. During the year, each intern has the opportunity to work with many of the psychologists on the staff, with some flexibility to pursue common interests.
Our psychologists come from a variety of educational backgrounds and theoretical orientations, which are reflected in different approaches to therapy and supervision. They provide exposure to a diversity of clinical styles and professional interests, allowing interns to learn from a range of professional models. All training at our hospital is grounded in a strong commitment to the interface between scientific inquiry and clinical practice.
