Program Overview Two of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation Mental Health Centers in Minnesota offer doctoral internships in health service psychology, accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association. Doctoral interns are trained to treat mental health disorders co-occurring with substance use disorders within an addiction treatment facility. Doctoral interns are provided a strong foundation in scholarly knowledge and clinical practice. The goal of the training program is to facilitate doctoral intern development as independent, generalist health service psychologists for a variety of career opportunities. This program emphasizes a developmental learning model that ensures doctoral intern knowledge of evidenced-based practices in the treatment of mental health disorders and facilitates interns' growing expertise in the daily clinical practice. Interested applicants are not required to have previous experience working with drug and alcohol addiction. Rather, this training program is seeking applicants ultimately who share an interest in gaining education, training and experience with a wide range of co-occurring mental health disorders and complex patient presentations within a multidisciplinary addiction treatment setting. The training program at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation provides broad-based clinical training through exposure to clinical interventions, such as psychological assessment, individual therapy, group therapy, and crisis management, as well as experience providing supervision to students and consultation within a multidisciplinary treatment team. Doctoral interns benefit from experience in providing consultation and advocacy on the multidisciplinary team including promoting individualized care and recommending appropriate resources and accommodations for diverse patients. There are opportunities for doctoral interns to further develop self-awareness, cultural sensitivity and humility and utilize their cultural knowledge in clinical practice. Doctoral interns receive consistent weekly supervision and didactic training. Additional opportunities for training in specialized testing and treatment of health care professionals are available in the adult program. The program is offered at the Center City location serving adults and the Plymouth location serving adolescents, young adults, and families.
