Clinical Training Program

Overview

The training program at Metrowest Neuropsychology, LLC offers individuals with graduate standing in psychology or related fields the opportunity to gain clinical experience in psychoeducational assessment and neuropsychological evaluation. The current trainee offerings primarily include work with children and adolescents.


Training Opportunities

Trainees are exposed to all aspects of the assessment process, including the clinical interview, administration of various psychometric tests, scoring and interpreting test results, and drafting initial test reports and communicating results to clients, families, teachers, etc. Trainees may gain experience with a variety of assessments, including psychoeducational, personality or emotional/behavioral, and neuropsychological. Typical cases include ADHD and learning disabilities, emotional/behavioral disorders in children and adolescents, and independent medical evaluations. Trainees will have exposure to work with young children through late teens.

Main training sites for the 2018-2019 will be in Boston-area public charter schools, from pre-K to 12th grade.

At times, trainees can elect to shadow supervisors at the clinic, located in Westborough or Norwell.


Supervision

Trainees generally alternate between three primary licensed supervisors for the year (Drs. Jeffrey Gaines, Stacy Horner and Moira Creedon for Neuropsychological and Psychoeducational Assessment). Regular supervision is provided through weekly appointments and on an as-needed basis. Additional support and consultation is provided in clinics by other psychology staff and by multidisciplinary staff at school settings.


Didactics

For the 2018/2019 school year, trainees will meet monthly for additional group supervision, didactics, and case presentations.


Applicants

The program is open to individuals of appropriate background and training (e.g., through masters or doctoral programs in psychology). Trainees may be involved in formal practica through their respective schools, seeking externships, seeking hours toward licensure, or simply looking for experience to enrich their resumes.

Trainees are expected to commit to work at minimum 16 – 20 hours, with some of that time spent in direct service onsite and some spent scoring and writing offsite.

Trainees can expect to produce at least one test report per week.

Specific days required will be based on site at which the trainee works (a topic to be reviewed in more detail during interviews).
