Introduction

Emory University Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers a twelve-month Postdoctoral Fellowship in University Mental Health for recent graduates from APA-Accredited doctoral programs in Clinical or Counseling Psychology. Each Fellow has the opportunity to enhance and deepen his/her/their skills in brief and longer-term psychotherapy (with individuals, couples and groups), crisis intervention, diagnostic interviewing and assessment, teaching, peer supervision, outreach and consultation.

Fellows at Emory Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) receive intensive, supportive training, which is designed to prepare them for the diversity of roles which psychologists assume in their career paths. While it is expected that Postdoctoral Fellows will work with a variety of clients, cultural backgrounds, presenting problems and treatment modalities, each fellow has the opportunity to work with an identified Specialty Supervisor in order to focus his/her/their training on a particular area of clinical interest. The 2000 hour Postdoctoral Fellowship meets or exceeds all requirements for licensure in the State of Georgia, including a minimum of 500 face-to-face service hours and more than 2 hours per week of individual supervision with a licensed psychologist.

Fellows receive two weeks of paid vacation, eleven University holidays, up to 12 sick days, a $400 professional development fund (to assist with conference/workshop attendance costs), and one week of professional or educational leave.
