The postdoctoral psychology residency is a one-year (2000-hour) position within Keystone Behavioral Pediatrics. Residents work with children and their families in a collaborative atmosphere with others in an interdisciplinary team of providers. Residents receive individual, group, and in-session supervision, and didactic activities are provided weekly. Under the direction of clinical supervision, the post-doctoral resident engages in the following activities:
- Behavior therapy – Our ABA programming supports clients in our early childhood center and affiliated school for students with autism and other behavioral needs. ABA therapy includes discrete trials and verbal behavior techniques, among others.
- Mental health treatment – Psychotherapy is provided in individual, family, group, and parent training formats. Treatment formats emphasize behavioral and cognitive-behavioral techniques. Other evidence-based interventions can also be utilized. Group therapies target social skills, anger management, anxiety and mood, along with other clinical conditions as appropriate (e.g., adjustment to deployment in military families).
- Psychological testing and report-writing – Evaluations include LD/ADHD assessments, autism and developmental assessments, mood and anxiety evaluations, and neuropsychological testing. Evaluation activities include assisting with intakes, conducting clinical interviews, test administration, scoring and analysis of test results, report writing and feedback.
- Additional activities and opportunities – School consultation, participation in clinical team meetings, collaboration with allied health providers (e.g., occupational therapy, speech therapy, feeding therapy), community outreach and participation in a multi-disciplinary clinic providing free developmental screenings for the community.
