Doctoral Students – Practicum

If you are enrolled in a doctoral program in clinical psychology or a related field and have an interest in forensic psychology, BCI has a number of training opportunities that may be approved by your educational institution.  

All students are supervised by a staff member with a Doctor of Psychology or Doctor of Philosophy credential and related licensure.  Emphasis is placed on providing quality training opportunities designed to increase a student’s clinical and forensic knowledge and skills and overall professional development.  Schedules are often very flexible and can be arranged around your other obligations.

 

Placement terms often begin in the fall each year.

Key areas of focus:  

  • participants may include individuals with traumatic brain injuries, learning disabilities, cognitive impairments, and/or mental health diagnoses

  • sessions focus on competency (to stand trial) remediation rather than traditional therapy

  • remediation entails using various methods/procedures (i.e., workbook, games, media) to teach participants about their rights, court personnel, plea options, etc.

  • students have flexibility to adapt the content of sessions based upon each individual participant’s needs, learning style, and areas of strength and weakness

 

Other Useful Information:

  • hours are flexible — typically, a student is expected to meet with a participant for 45-60 minutes twice each week

  • hours are not guaranteed and are based on court volume/flow

  • there may be opportunities to meet participants both within and outside the BCI office

  • travel may be required, but is reimbursed at current federal rates

  • there may be opportunities to provide remediation to juveniles as well as adults

  • routine case documentation and reporting is required

  • you will receive weekly supervision and feedback by a licensed professional
