Doctoral Internships in Psychology in Florida

Welcome to the Centerstone Consortium

Centerstone Consortium is committed to providing training to future health service psychologists through a practitioner-scholar model. The Consortium is further dedicated to providing training experiences in effective mental health care delivery systems, collaborative partnerships, and integration with other disciplines (primary care, psychology, case management, social work, nursing, and counseling). Each site and internship track has a unique emphasis, however, the training experiences are united by the program’s mission, as well as shared didactic, training, and supervision experiences. The consortium has a focus on providing care to individuals from historically underserved populations, with complex presenting issues, and for whom psychotherapeutic or psychodiagnostic services may not otherwise be accessible. The Consortium supports development in multicultural competence, and honors each interns intersecting identities. There are six sites with distinct training opportunities: Centerstone Hospital and Outpatient Clinics, Psychological & Neurobehavioral Services, Center Place, AllCare Medical Centers, All Star Children’s Foundation, and Winter Haven Hospital. All interns receive a two day DBT Intensive at the start of the training year. Please review our Internship Manual for an in depth description of sites, tracks, supervisors, and additional training experiences. Below are the institutions that provide training for our interns:



Outpatient- Child #196712 – On this track, interns provide psychological services to an adolescent and child population in a community based public health setting. Intern clinical services include individual and group therapy for clients with an array of presenting issues in the outpatient clinic, which is collocated with comprehensive mental health medical and case management service providers. If indicated, outpatient psychotherapy services are integrated with those disciplines. Interns often act as consultants to the allied mental health professions, who comprise our multidisciplinary care team. Interns further answer diagnostic referral questions for Outpatient and Children’s Community Action Team clients though psychological assessment, and offer feedback to stakeholders, including carers and providers. Interns may also coordinate with the intern placed on the Child and Adolescent CSU to provide wraparound care to outpatient clients in crisis. On this track, interns may further choose to engage in program development and community outreach.

Outpatient-Adult #196719 – Interns will provide psychological services primarily to an outpatient adult population. Many of the clients served on this track present with complex diagnostic issues, histories of intergenerational trauma, and family systems impacted by substance misuse. Interns use a range of EBPs to provide care for clients on this rotation, especially DBT Skills. A two day intensive in DBT Skills is offered at the start of internship. Interns also act as part of the multidisciplinary team, offering consultative feedback to providers. Interns further receive referrals for psychological evaluation for clients who are not responding to treatment. Common instruments used are the MCMI and MMPI. Interns on this track may also elect an additional training experience in Exposure and Response Prevention for OCD spectrum disorders.

Hospital Generalist (Adult/Child) #196713 – Centerstone Hospital is a not-for-profit facility offering trauma informed crisis intervention, stabilization, and treatment for individuals coping with severe and/or chronic psychiatric conditions and/or co-occurring disorders. This track offers the unique opportunity to provide care to individuals with complex presenting issues and high acuity across the life span, as interns rotate through adult and child/adolescent crisis stabilization units. Interns also further rotate through the adult hospitalization program. Interns are valued members of the multidisciplinary care team, offering consultation to psychiatric, nursing, and case management providers. Interns round with psychiatric providers, offering insight and feedback on client presenting issues and treatment planning. Due to their collaborative relationship with psychiatry, interns gain understanding of psychopharmacology and have the opportunity to observe Mental Health Court. Interns may also provide rapid psychological evaluation for diagnostic clarification of complex cases, and participate in complex case conferences. Interns additionally have the opportunity to provide clinical supervision to Peer Support Specialists.

Interns facilitate on-unit groups using a variety of evidence based and evidence supported modalities, with an emphasis on DBT Skills. Interns receive a two day Intensive Training in DBT Skills, and this rotation provides the opportunity to implement learning into practice. Although groups are oriented towards DBT Skills, interns may also develop groups based on their clinical interests. Interns have flexibility in their clinical time, which affords them the ability to provide extended intensive services to the clients who are most in need.

Trauma Services- Lifespan (Adult/Child) #196717 – Interns have the opportunity to provide trauma-focused therapy and assessment services to adults, children and adolescents who are experiencing psychological, somatic and/or behavioral problems related to sexual assault, child sexual abuse, human trafficking and other traumatic life experiences. Interns may request to have more of their caseload focus on child/adolescent or adult clients, but will see some clients across the lifespan during their internship year. Interns are part of the Trauma Services group which includes Rape Crisis Advocates, Program management and supervision by a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and LMHC, and opportunities for community outreach including participation in the annual Sexual Assault Awareness event and providing trauma-informed training to law enforcement and other professionals. Individual therapy predominates, though ongoing groups for adult survivors and non-offending parents are also provided. Interns may work with individual therapy clients for up to one year, based on client needs. A caseload generally begins with transfer clients from previous interns and is then built by the intern, including no more than 6 clinical hours per day. Flexibility in the pace of developing and managing the composition of one’s caseload is supported and encouraged. Interns will receive training in Play therapy, Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral therapy and the Tri-Phasic Model of treatment for complex trauma. Interns are also encouraged to work from an integrative stance, incorporating other theoretical orientations and interventions based on their conceptualization of a particular client. Patient symptoms are assessed and monitored throughout treatment using evidence-based assessment measures including the TSCC, TSCYC, TSI-2 and PCL-5. Interns will receive individual and group supervision within Trauma Services, in addition to the Consortium group supervisions which include interns across all rotations and sites. Within Trauma Services, supervision focuses on supporting interns in case conceptualization, choosing appropriate interventions, monitoring client progress, understanding countertransference, and problem solving issues related to ethics, diversity, and risk. The overall goal of your internship experience in Trauma Services-Lifespan is to build experience, confidence, and autonomy in developing as a clinician through your work with clients across the lifespan exposed to complex trauma.

Integrative Substance Misuse #196714 – Interns provide psychological services to adults with co-occurring substance misuse and mental health disorders in hospital, residential outpatient, and primary care settings. Interns rotate through the Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) programs on the Centerstone Hospital campus (outpatient, residential and detox). Interns may also select a minor rotation in integrated primary care mental health settings, to include AllCare, Centerplace Health, and Turning Points. The emphasis of this track is on public health and providing multiculturally competent care to historically underserved populations. Many of the clients interns interact with have faced structural barriers to care in the past.

Interns use a range of modalities when providing care on this track, including CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Motivational Enhancement, and DBT Skills for Addiction. Interns provide individual and group psychotherapy using these EBPs, but are also free to develop evidence supported group programming which aligns with the trainee’s clinical interests. Interns are further supported in treatment planning from both harm reduction and abstinence models of recovery. Interns are additionally provided with a two day intensive training in SMART Recovery at the outset of internship.

Centerstone is located in a Health Professional Service Area, and this internship track is supported by a Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Graduate Psychology Education grant. As a result, interns who complete their predoctoral psychology internship on this track have increased eligibility for National Health Service Corps loan repayment programs, should they continue their careers at qualified sites. Please see Loan Repayment | NHSC (hrsa.gov) for more detail.

AllCare Medical Centers

Medical Psychology Generalist- AllCare #196711 – AllCare provides primary healthcare to patients of all ages (from newborn to aging adults), with a psychological component integrated throughout the practice. Interns will provide individual and family therapy to an outpatient population of children, adolescents, adults, and geriatrics with acute mental health issues. Interns will also provide comprehensive psychological assessments those populations, to aid in diagnostic clarity and treatment planning. Also, interns will provide neuropsychological assessments to patients presenting with diverse psychological, neuropsychological, and medical conditions. Interns will be providing these services in office, skilled nursing, and hospital settings.

CenterPlace Health

Integrated Behavioral Health #196718 – Interns will provide comprehensive outpatient psychological services to children, adolescents, and adults within the context of a community-based FQHC health care system in Sarasota County, FL. CenterPlace Health (CPH) offers health care services at six locations throughout Sarasota County. A wide range of primary health care services are offered (e.g., Pediatrics, Family Medicine, OB/Gyn, Dentistry, etc) and CPH collaborates with a host of community partners to ensure integrated care, addressing the whole person. Referrals to CPH Behavioral Health are made by health care providers within the CenterPlace system for a wide variety of psychological and medical concerns.

The intern will participate 1-2 days per week in the CenterPlace Diagnostic Clinic. Psychological evaluations address a broad range of referral questions from both a nomothetic and idiographic framework. A wide range of behavioral, psychometric, and projective methods are typically employed. The age of referred patients ranges from preschooler to senior adult. A particular emphasis is often school-age children and insuring that educational and psychosocial needs are being met within the school setting. In addition to conducting initial intakes, providing comprehensive psychological evaluations, and completing comprehensive reports; the intern will participate in and ultimately lead in the dissemination of findings and recommendations to patients and family members. The intern will also be expected to provide mentorship and direct supervision to graduate students completing their assessment practicums from local universities, such as NLU.

Referrals for psychological services come from physicians or allied health professionals within the CenterPlace Health system. The intern will work closely with health care providers as they communicate using the Athena-based medical chart and HIPPA-compliant texting system. While all Diagnostic Clinic appointments are in-person, psychological interventions, such as individual and family therapy, are delivered using a hybrid model of service delivery. That is, the intern’s case load will consist of a combination of telehealth and in-person therapies. The ratio of in-person to telehealth services will be established with each intern individually and there is flexibility in this regard as long as acceptable exposure to both modalities has been achieved. Interns can expect to be exposed to a wide range of outpatient therapeutic interventions (individual, family-based, parent education models) under the supervision of Dr. Hodgens, provided in an eclectic and supportive environment that supports personal and professional growth.

All Star Children’s Foundation

Trauma-Focused Child Assessment & Treatment #196721 – Interns provide multidisciplinary assessment, consultation, and treatment for children ages 0-18 and their families with child welfare involvement. All children have a history of trauma, maltreatment, and/or involvement with the child welfare system. Interns are trained in a comprehensive model of care for children in out-of-home foster care that includes focus on birth parent engagement, trauma-informed systems work, evidence-based clinical services, child-focused enrichment opportunities, and foster parent training and support. In particular, the intern conducts weekly comprehensive psychological evaluations to assess children’s cognitive, developmental, emotional, and behavioral functioning alongside a multidisciplinary team of providers. The intern gains exposure to multiple evidence-based interventions for childhood trauma, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC) interventions, and delivers evidence-based, trauma-informed mental health therapy to children with identified trauma histories. Additionally, the intern consults and collaborates with various systems and providers working with children in foster care to support trauma-informed approaches to care.

Winter Haven Hospital

Medical Psychology Generalist-Winter Haven Hospital #196720 – Winter Haven Hospital aims to train psychology interns to become generalist psychologists, who are well-equipped to provide a range of clinical services in healthcare settings. Interns will split their time between two settings: an outpatient primary care office and an outpatient neuropsychological assessment clinic. In addition to providing clinical services, interns will have opportunities to develop supervision skills by assisting in the supervision of advanced doctoral students.

Examples of assessment measures that will be utilized include: WISC-V, WPPSI-IV, WAIS-IV, WJ-IV Achievement, ADOS-2, ADI-R, SRS-2, BASC-3, NEPSY-2, and WRAML-3. Interns will conduct the clinical interview, administer and interpret assessments, write the psychological report, and conduct the feedback session.
  • Interns will maintain a caseload of individual therapy clients under a short-term therapy model. Most patients are seen for a course of 3 to 8 sessions, once every 2 to 3 weeks, depending on patient needs. Additionally, interns will co-facilitate a therapy group once a week.
  • The primary care clinic is home to a Florida State University Family Medicine Residency Program; therefore, interns work closely with faculty and resident physicians.

In the Outpatient Neurorehabilitation Program, interns will provide neuropsychological services to adults — primarily neuropsychological assessments.

  • Examples of types of assessment include: assessment of dementing conditions, traumatic brain injury, stroke, neurological conditions (e.g., Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, ADHD), concomitant mental health concerns, and pre-surgery psychological evaluations.
