Psychological Consultations is a private group practice located in the Lakeview area of Chicago, Illinois. Interns at PC provide psychological services to diverse populations, most especially Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, and Questioning (LGBTQ) clients. Other areas of practice at PC include individual, family, couple, and group therapy, as well as cooperative treatment of HIV/AIDS-impacted persons. Services conducted at PC include therapy, assessment, groups, and consulting. PC also offers neuropsychological assessment and rehabilitation assessment for the state of Illinois.
At PC, Interns not only gain experience with a diverse array of presenting concerns, but are also involved in learning the nature of running a group private practice. Clients’ typical diagnostic presentations may vary from acute to chronic difficulties. Some clients may not have insurance, while others may utilize private insurance. In addition, the Intern at PC acts as the Administrative Intern for IPAPIC and is involved with organizing Consortium-wide didactics, authoring and editing training materials for both the externship and internship application processes, and engaging in other Consortium-related activities. Interns are also given the opportunity to provide direct weekly clinical and administrative peer supervision for diagnostic and therapy externs training at PC. Interns typically engage in at least 15-20 hours of direct service weekly. The remaining clinical hours during the week are spent in supervision, research, assessment administration, scoring, and report writing. At the completion of the internship experience, interns will demonstrate competency in domains set forth by APA in the treatment, assessment, group work, case management, and consultation. The ideal at the end of Internship is to attempt to produce through PC’s excellence in training the best possible readiness for professional practice as a doctoral level psychologist candidate.
