PEDIATRIC PSYCHOLOGY POSTDOCTORAL POSITION

 

The postdoctoral training program in Pediatric Psychology at Georgia Pediatric Psychology (www.georgiapediatricpsychology.com) is an intensive 12-month training program in Clinical Child Psychology with an emphasis in Pediatric Psychology. There are additional positions with a flexible start date in the summer or fall of 2015 available at GPP. Pay is competitive, and we consider part time as well as full time postdoctoral students. The program is located in a private practice setting. The focus of the postdoctoral program is the training and development of psychologists with an advanced level of competency in Clinical Child Psychology with an emphasis in Pediatric Psychology. The fellowship emphasizes the developmental and social contexts of child psychopathology and the use of empirically validated assessments. Postdoctoral students gain experience in diagnosis, assessment, and case conceptualization of children with a wide range of medical, developmental, and psychological difficulties. Autism spectrum disorders, neuropsychological assessment, and psychoeducational evaluations are a primary focus. Weekly individual and group supervision is provided and will satisfy Georgia Licensure requirements. Very limited therapy opportunities are offered as this primarily is an assessment based training program; however, each fellow participates in weekly clinical intake and feedback sessions. Postdoctoral fellows also obtain opportunities to supervise predoctoral level students completing their requirements as part of their diagnostic training. The postdoctoral training program offers several tracks including autism spectrum, neuropsychological, and general pediatric assessment to assist in the development of specific specialty areas.   

 

For the motivated individual, training opportunities in private practice development and marketing skills, parent training, and support groups for children on the autism spectrum are also able to be incorporated into the training program. Over the course of the one-year training experience, the curriculum is graduated and progressive such that fellows advance from exposure to experience and the development of expertise to prepare them for independent practice.
