Psychology Internship Development Toolkit
Lorraine Mangione, PhD, is co-author of an article about the Psychology Internship Development Toolkit that was recently published in the journal, Training and Education in Professional Psychology. This project originated right here at Antioch, grew through the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology (NCSPP), and finally came to fruition through the backing of the Council of Chairs of Training Councils at the America Psychological Association (APA). The group that did the bulk of the work, listed below, truly represents a good swath of the psychology training community, united by the need for internship creation.

Abstract: The availability of quality doctoral internships for students in health service psychology is one of the most significant issues being addressed by the education and training community at present. The Psychology Internship Development Toolkit is a resource designed to assist those who would like to develop, expand, or sustain an internship program in health service psychology. This article provides a background overview of the need for more internship positions and efforts to increase the number of positions available for students currently in training to receive a doctoral degree in health service psychology. The development of the Toolkit and its recent revision are described. To assist with an overview of the Toolkit and its utility, a summary of each section and a link to the Toolkit are provided. Future developments for expansion of this resource are presented. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)
