Our program has a strong presence in the Louisville community, and currently has affiliation training agreements with more than 50 community partners in a wide range of applied settings. You will be placed in practicum by the faculty, who carefully consider your training needs and professional developmental level.
Our practica program provides four levels of experience:
- psychological assessment of children and adults
- introductory psychotherapy
- psychotherapy and development of conceptual model
- advanced psychotherapy and beginning clinical supervision
Once you are enrolled in the doctoral program, you will complete the entire four-level sequence, including one advanced practicum in your chosen area of emphasis. All four practica are intended to cultivate knowledge, skills and attitudes consistent with the professional competencies set forth by the National Council of the Schools of Professional Psychology (NCSPP) and informed by the American Psychological Association (APA).
