  • Testing and Therapy Externships

    East Towson Psychological Services is proud to provide training experiences for doctoral students in psychology who wish to enhance their competence and share our passion for providing culturally responsive care to BIPOC and LGBTQ+ clients.

    Testing

    We offer a competitive compensation for doctoral students interested in administering and scoring psychological assessments for comprehensive evaluations. Testing externs will receive supervision and oversight from postdoctoral fellows and a licensed psychologist.

    Therapy

    We offer a two-year therapy externship for advanced doctoral students in clinical and counseling psychology to provide psychotherapy to adult clients. Therapy sessions will be recorded, providing externs the opportunity to receive focused supervision to improve their clinical skill and better understand interpersonal dynamics in the therapeutic relationship. Externs will also enhance their skills by continually monitoring treatment outcomes and progress through formal and informal assessment measures to ensure they are providing clients with the highest quality of care.

    Have appreciation for and experience with the unique needs of marginalized clients of color

    Be interested in expanding social justice and decolonization practices into case conceptualization skills

    Be intellectually curious, open, and committed to learning about the nuances of work in private practice

    Be committed to discussing issues of identity, privilege, and oppression in the context of their work with clients and in supervision

    Demonstrate ability to work both independently and under supervision
