Clinical Psychology Internship

Porterville Developmental Center

The objective of the Clinical Psychology Internship program is to train generalist psychologists who can apply skills learned at PDC in a wide variety of clinical settings. This internship program is part of the Central California Psychology Internship Consortium (CCPIC), which is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). CCPIC has five internship sites, and is one of four consortia that comprise the Golden State Psychology Internship Consortium (GSPIC). The internship can be individualized. Most interns select to focus on the forensic opportunities available at PDC. This includes assessment and evaluation, report preparation, interdisciplinary treatment team functions, and group and individual psychotherapy.
