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 fully accredited by APA.  Questions related to the program’s accreditation status should be directed to the Commission on Accreditation:
