Psychotherapy

Residents are assigned a supervisor on an annual basis for psychotherapy training. Residents begin psychotherapy training in the PGY-2 year and continue for a minimum of two years. Senior residents are encouraged to continue in supervised psychotherapy. Training in family therapy and/or group therapy, also as a supervised experience, is mandatory and may be provided at several levels of training. Training in cognitive behavioral therapy is mandatory and is provided for eight months in the PGY-2 year. There are additional opportunities for training in interpersonal, mindfulness, and couples therapies.  Seminars related to psychotherapy are provided in each training year, commensurate with level of training.
