Two Postdoctoral Fellowships in Psychology, The PRACTICE: A UNLV Community Mental Health Clinic

Nevada is 47th in the nation for psychologists per capita.  Without sounding too cliche, where there is great need, there is great opportunity.  Nevada is a place where there is room to have a great deal of influence in one’s destiny as a psychologist; and where a psychologist can make a tangible difference in the community.  There is plenty of work to go around, plenty of work to do, and a committed professional community to support you in doing so.  It’s a place where “you” are wanted, needed, and welcomed with open arms.  It’s a place where you have a chance to make a big splash quickly.  The need is so great, if you are a skilled clinician, there are plenty of opportunities whether it be in private practice (you’ll be full and running on a wait list before you know it); public settings; expanding VA hospital/clinics; or the new medical school.

Our clinic is also expanding and we provide our postdoctoral trainees excellent, attentive, diligent supervision with opportunities to gain increasing independence and to influence and build our programs alongside us.

APA Statement of Board of Directors: Living in a World of Diverse Religions

Living in a World of Diverse Religions

Statement of Board of Directors

American Psychological Association

December 10, 2015

Since the founding of our nation, religious liberty has been at the heart of the American vision of democratic freedom. Within the framework of the U.S. Constitution, the right to practice one’s religion is recognized and upheld. Moreover, due to the mandated separation of church and state, religion cannot be enforced or controlled by the U.S. government.

Recent acts of terror and violence perpetrated by extremists using the name of religion have shaken our world and our sense of security. At times throughout history, religious extremism — in the form of factions of religious groups that misuse their faith to support violence in the name of their religion — has been faced by all of the world’s major religions and has led to massive chaos and suffering.

During the past decade, violent extremists claiming to act in the name of Islam have raised fears and created confusion about Islam and the teachings of the Qur’an. In the United States, some individuals and groups have attempted to conflate all of Islam with extremist violence by disseminating misinformation and distortions about Islam and American Muslims. This has led to a rise of individual and systemic discrimination against American Muslims and those perceived to be Muslims often with heritage from the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia. This oppression can be seen in enactment of discriminatory policies, and most recently, the refusal of many countries’ governments in Europe and some federal and state officials in the United States to accept Syrian refugees who are seeking safe harbor (see

In particular, American psychologists are challenged to acknowledge the impact of the post-9/11 climate of fear, bias and discrimination facing our Muslim colleagues, students, clients and communities. We have witnessed hate crimes and other acts of violence perpetrated against Muslims and those mistakenly identified as Muslim (e.g., Sikhs). In line with our long tradition of bringing psychological science and expertise to bear on prejudice, bias and discrimination, it is time to support our Muslim colleagues, counter misinformation and sweeping generalizations (Diversity of Muslims in the U. S.), and address fear by supporting resilience and nurturing connection and community.

Psychology, which comprises our knowledge of human behavior and our commitment to benefit society and improve people’s lives, can offer several constructive responses to violent extremism and the fear of more violence.

First, we understand trauma response. Second, we know how to foster individual and community resilience (APA, 2011; Kilmer et al, 2010). Third, we understand how fear can split communities, distort perceptions, confound decision making and increase bias and discrimination (Fischhoff, 2011). Fourth, we have a wealth of multicultural scholars who can contribute to the discourse on religious and cultural identities and practices to promote understanding and acceptance. The American Psychological Association (APA) has taken a leadership role in opposing discrimination based on, or derived from, religion or spirituality and in encouraging commensurate consideration of religion and spirituality as diversity variables, as delineated in the association’s policy adopted in 2007.

APA’s vision statement sets forth the association’s commitment to global partnerships that promote the application of “psychological knowledge and methods to facilitate the resolution of personal, societal and global challenges in diverse, multicultural and international contexts.” We understand the adverse, and often tragic, impact of stereotyping, implicit bias and prejudice. We know that marginalized communities who are perceived as potentially violent or dangerous actually endure the most violence from within not without. We offer support and assistance to individuals and communities who are suffering. We must empathize, sympathize and offer solutions to counter fear-based decisions and actions among our communities, and advocate for those who are marginalized and experiencing oppression.

To quote Martin Luther King, Jr.,”Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

2016 Postdoctoral Residency in Clinical Psychology at Arroyos Treatment Centers

2016 Postdoctoral Residency in Clinical Psychology

The Arroyos Treatment Centers (TATC) invites applicants to two full-time position openings in its August 2016 postdoctoral residency training program in Clinical Psychology.  TATC is a mental health treatment corporation in Pasadena, California, 15 minutes from downtown Los Angeles. TATC is a Postdoctoral Member of the California Psychology Internship Council (CAPIC). CAPIC is recognized by the California Board of Psychology for the accrual of Supervised Professional Experience (SPE) hours toward licensure as a psychologist.

This position is ideal for a candidate with doctoral level training in clinical psychology who is seeking specialized training in assessment and intervention with patients who have severe mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder, major depression, schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia, severe anxiety disorders, and co-occurring chemical dependency. This patient population is at high risk for co-occurring medical diagnoses, neuropsychological diagnoses, and/or psycholegal and forensic issues as complications of their primary psychiatric and psychological clinical presentation.  These issues are comprehensively addressed within the clinical setting by the multidisciplinary treatment team of clinical psychologists and psychiatrists in an integrated case management model.

This residency is designed to prepare the candidate for a career in private practice in the Los Angeles area and to assist the resident in preparing to take the licensing exam to practice psychology in the state of California.

The resident will provide individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, psychological testing and assessment, and case management to patients. The resident will also be actively involved in ongoing program development. The resident will work in outpatient, Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), and Residential Treatment Center (RTC) settings. The resident will gain understanding of the interface between these practice settings and inpatient psychiatric, chemical dependency, and medical-surgical hospital settings.  The resident will learn procedures for crisis clinical evaluations, involuntary holds to hospitals, and LPS conservatorships.  The resident will also learn basic clinical psychopharmacology as applied to the practice of clinical psychology.

Applicants must have the following qualifications in order to be considered for the residency:

  1. Completion of all requirements for the Ph.D. or Psy.D. from an APA accredited doctoral program in clinical psychology by August 1, 2016.
  2. Completion of an APA, AAPIC, or CAPIC approved pre-doctoral internship program by the start date.
  3. Candidates are required to have already completed one year of pre-doctoral inpatient hospital training. Candidates with two years of hospital training are especially well matched for this residency.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Professional Psychology at Heartland Alliance Marjorie Kovler Center

(December,  2015)

The Heartland Alliance Marjorie Kovler Center (Kovler Center) in Chicago, Illinois is continuing its one-year, full-time postdoctoral residency in clinical or counseling psychology, beginning September 2016.  The position consists of training in and experience with therapeutic services for a widely diverse population of refugees and immigrants who are survivors of torture.

The residency offers a monthly stipend of $2160 ($25,920 annually), with full employment benefits.  It also entails the responsibilities and supervision requisite for state licensure eligibility.  For consideration, an applicant must have satisfactorily completed before the starting date all requirements for the doctoral degree from a professional psychology program accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA), preferably with an APA-accredited internship.

Preference will also be given to applicants with significant backgrounds in biopsychosocial and multicultural services, trauma-informed and systemic treatment models, human rights or social justice advocacy, work with interpreters, and experience with immigrant, refugee, or other international populations.   Applications deadline is February 1, 2016, and the more qualified candidates will be invited to interview by phone or in person in order to fill the position by March 1.


The Kovler Center was established in 1987 as a program of Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Human Rights.  As the principal anti-poverty, non-profit, and non-governmental organization based in the Midwest, Heartland Alliance serves almost a million people a year in need of health care, housing, jobs, rehabilitation, and advocacy through its multiple programs in Chicago and internationally.

Since its inception, the Kovler Center’s mission has been to aid asylum seekers and refugees from 84 countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.   The center consists of 20 multidisciplinary staff including psychiatry, mental health counseling, advanced practice nursing, occupational therapy, case management, and program evaluation and administration.  It also has two licensed psychologists and a clinical social worker who provide training and supervision for four advanced therapy practicum students as well as the postdoctoral resident; and it makes use of an extensive network of almost 200 volunteers, the majority of whom are professionals, who annually render over 10,000 hours of pro bono assistance at the center.

Over the preceding year, the center helped 366 individuals from 56 countries, including 90 new clients.  Its services include culturally sensitive and strengths-based mental health and integrated primary care treatment, case management, crisis intervention, forensic evaluation and consultation, and community development.   It also has been providing training in clinical and counseling psychology, social work, psychiatry, and related health fields for more than two decades.

The center is a member of the National Consortium of Torture Treatment Programs, a network of 35 organizations in 17 states and the District of Columbia, seeking to address the needs of an estimated 1,300,000 survivors of torture who have come to the United States in the last forty years.  The center is also one of more than 140 member organizations in 70 countries comprising the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims.  As such, the Kovler Center participates in the worldwide movement to promote the recovery and resettlement of those who have suffered persecution and deliberately inflicted trauma for political, religious, social and cultural, racial and ethnic, or sex and gender-based reasons.

The Fellowship Structure

As the postdoctoral project enters its second year, it is not yet a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC), but it is designed according to the association’s guidelines and the licensure requirements in the State of Illinois for 2000 hours of supervised clinical activities.  Accordingly, the responsibilities of the residency ensures that more than half the designated hours are spent in face-to-face treatment and assessment.  The weekly 40-hour schedule will average:
