Seminars & Didactics

There are a number of didactics and seminars that are part of the internship program. 

Core didactics: The core didactic series consists of two, one-hour weekly seminars and will include a variety of topics including the practice of psychotherapy, assessment, ethics, professional development, research presentations, and case conference.  For part of the year, this time will include participation in the weekly psychotherapy curriculum for psychiatry residents, which includes topics in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Couples/Family Treatment, and Complex Case Formulation.  Topics focused on diversity, race, and cultural competency will be integrated into all didactics, and also covered in seminars focused on these areas.

Supervision seminar: There will be a monthly seminar series focused on providing clinical supervision, which will include both didactic and experiential learning.

Rotation didactics: Many rotations will also offer specific didactic experiences for interns who are on that rotation.

Evidence-based training workshops: There may be opportunities to participate in training workshops lasting from 1-3 days on topics such as Prolonged Exposure, Motivational Interviewing, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia.

In addition there are a number of other seminars and didactics available to interns including the Department of Psychiatry Grand Rounds and other talks offered across the university.
