Advanced Training Opportunities for 2019-2020

CaPS has cultivated a well-rounded training experience for doctoral-level psychology and counselor education students, psychiatric residents, and Masters level counseling and social work interns.

At CaPS, our overarching approach to psychotherapy is influenced by developmental, humanistic, and psychodynamic understandings of human functioning and treatment. We offer a rich learning experience designed to foster greater competency, whether as a social worker or as a therapist fostering a deeper understanding of the psychotherapy process, in a university setting. In accordance with PA ACT 153 requirements, all trainees must pass the following background checks: PA criminal history, child abuse, and FBI finger printing.
