Post-Doctoral Psychology Fellowship in University Mental Health at FordhamUniversity’s Counseling and Psychological Services
FordhamUniversity’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) seeks to promote the overall personal, social, and academic development of the student body through a variety of specialized professional services. It functions within the Division of Student Affairs in concert with other departments united in promoting student development and wellness. CPS’s approach to mental health care is in line with cura personalis, where a holistic approach to the emotional, physical, academic, social and, at times, spiritual functioning of each student is applied. CPS is also committed to the provision of culturally-sensitive counseling and outreach services, and to the training of mental health practitioners who seek to develop their multicultural competencies in a college setting. The CPS staff is comprised of licensed psychologists, psychiatric consultants, pre-doctoral psychology interns and externs, psychiatric residents, and clerical support staff.
CPS offers a full-time, twelve-month Post-doctoral Fellowship at the Rose Hill campus that will commence July 2009.A part-time fellowship may also be available. The Post-doctoral fellowship provides a comprehensive training experience in university mental health with an emphasis on clinical assessment, individual and group therapy, crisis intervention that may include after hours consultation, campus outreach and prevention, and supervision of pre-doctoral psychology externs. The post-doc will receive intensive supervision by senior-level staff, participate in and lead weekly case conferences and seminars on psychodynamic psychotherapy, and have the opportunity to attend regional conferences. The development of a specialization in substance abuse, eating disorders, or program development and evaluation is encouraged.
The large, urban university environment offers an appealing combination of challenging and varied clinical work in a supportive professional setting.CPS has offices at both University campuses – Bronx (Rose Hill) and Manhattan (LincolnCenter).The position will predominantly reside at the Rose Hill Campus.
