Intern Disclosure of Personal Information

During the internship year, interns are commonly asked to participate in experiential activities in seminars and supervision that requires the disclosure of personal information. These activities are seen as essential in promoting interns development and skills as a psychologist, such as by assisting interns to appropriately utilize the self in therapy. It is our intention that personal disclosures are done in a training environment characterized by trust, safety, and respect. Training staff is careful to avoid misuse of this information. While there is not an expectation that personal disclosure needs to occur at every opportunity, there is an expectation that the intern will participate at a level that furthers their professional development.

Potential applicants who have questions about this aspect of the training program are welcome to contact Leslie Martin, Training Director.
