ANE Professors on National Shortage of APA-Accredited Internships

At the end of four years of academic coursework and clinical training, Antioch University New England doctoral students in clinical psychology apply for year-long internships. ANE prides itself on a great number of our students placing into internships accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC).

Over the last ten years, though, there has been an increasing shortage of such sites, affecting doctoral students across the country, ANE students among them.

Recently, the editors of the APA journal, Training and Education in Professional Psychology (TEPP), tackled this difficult subject of supply and demand in a special issue entitled “The Internship Match: Changing the Paradigm to Move Beyond the Status Quo”. Dr. Roger Peterson is on the TEPP editorial board and Dr. Lorraine Mangione was co-author on an article therein called “A critical analysis of systemic problems with psychology pre-doctoral internship training: Contributing factors and collaborative solutions”.

The journal is available for purchase through APA.

ANE students can request the article through the Library.
