** CPS Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology **
Montana State University Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) offers a full time, 12 month, APA accredited Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology. The training program provides an array of experiences typical of Counseling Centers including: provision of therapy (individual, couples, group), crisis intervention, assessment (intakes, psychological evaluations), outreach, consultation, scholarship, as well as other activities appropriate to this setting. It also offers a potential unique opportunity to work on the Crow Indian Reservation or Montana State Hospital for 13 weeks during the summer (pending housing availability, and funding for travel).
We view the environment of the center as a strength. Respect for individual differences and multicultural competence, the value of relationships, professional and personal growth - are all cultural values upheld in the center and are pivotal components of the training program.
Our training program has been accredited by the American Psychological Association since 1988. To verify our accreditation status or for questions related to accreditation of internships and training programs, the Commission on Accreditation can be contacted at:
