Internship at CGC is a one-year full-time program focusing on the development of clinical skills with children and families within the community mental health system. Our mission emphasizes our dedication to improving the mental and behavioral health of children and teens through treatment, education, and community support. To this aim, supervisors at CGC support interns’ growth through reflective supervision, which emphasizes collaborative reflection that builds on the Intern’s use of his/her thoughts, feelings, and values within a clinical activity. Particular attention is given to the Intern’s personal history and identity as relevant to developing their capacity to work effectively with issues of diversity and individual difference.

CGC has been a training institution for nearly 65 years, with APPIC membership since 2007 (APPIC code 1605). The CGC Doctoral Internship Program is accredited on contingency by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association (APA). This means that the Internship program is recognized as an accredited program by APA; however, longitudinal outcome data is still being collected, and the status of “full accreditation” is contingent upon submission of that data. Questions related to the program’s accreditation status should be directed to the Commission on Accreditation:
