History of the Predoctoral Internship in Professional Psychology
The predoctoral internship in professional psychology at CAPS began as a two year part-time program in August, 1995 and moved to a full-time internship with three interns in 1999. Counseling and social work practicum students also take part in some of the training and service activities.
The CAPS internship program has been a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) since 1996. A self study was completed and submitted to the American Psychological Association (APA) as part of an application for accreditation in August, 1997. The pre-doctoral internship program received APA accreditation in 1998 and was reaccredited in 2003 and in 2009. The next accreditation site visit will be held in 2016.
