Killexams : APA-Accredited Doctoral Internship in Health Service Psychology

(Following the recommendation by the American Psychological Association Office of Program Consultation and Accreditation, the title of the internship program was changed from "Predoctoral Internship" to "Doctoral Internship" in October 2013.)

The goal of the Doctoral Internship in Health Service Psychology at CAPS is to prepare doctoral students in the final stages of their graduate training for broad, competent, and responsible functioning as professional psychologists in the mental health care system. The program provides interns with the opportunity to develop and refine general skills that are fundamental to the independent practice of health service psychology, and applicable to a wide variety of mental healthcare settings.

The internship training program places particular emphasis on consolidation of a theoretical body of knowledge; competencies in individual and group psychotherapy, clinical assessment, crisis assessment and intervention, consultation and advocacy, preventive and developmental outreach programs, and supervision skills. Interns are also expected to deepen their sense of professional identity by functioning effectively as members of a multifaceted mental health/student development system for the campus community. The internship facilitates the interns' productive relationships with fellow trainees and with clinical staff. The objectives are both to become proficient in the provision of psychological services and to enhance the personal and professional qualities necessary to participate cooperatively and creatively in health service settings.

The internship program is based on a 40-45 hour week, for 12 months, with university holidays, vacation and sick leave, and staff benefits. The program begins on July 31, 2023, and is completed one year later. The total training comprises more than 1,800 hours of supervised experience. In addition, time is spent outside the regular daytime business hours as may be needed for program planning, research, preparation for services, documentation, and delivery of special activities.

Approximately three evenings and one weekend per academic quarter, interns serve as after-hours on-call consultants for a third-party agency that receives crisis calls from the Northwestern community. When on-call outside of daytime business hours, interns are paired with backup supervisory staff at CAPS. These additional hours bring the total internship hours to 2,000 for the year; individuals are advised to check with their state Boards of Psychology to determine if these additional hours may be declared in their applications for licensure.

For transparency, we offer a look at the current year's Training Policies & Procedures Handbook This Handbook is given to our interns when they arrive at the internship, but it may be worthwhile for prospective applicants to review it. The Handbook provides comprehensive information that pertains to Doctoral Interns at CAPS, including our internship structure, weekly training and service activities, the timeline for evaluations, and policies for absences and leave time. It also provides information about our policies for due process, non-discrimination, harassment, grievance, and resources for equal opportunity and access. In addition, prospective interns may benefit from learning about the expectations for activities and performance of interns, which can be found in the Handbook as well as in the requirements for successful completion of the internship program.

Competencies in working with a culturally diverse clientele comprise one of the three training goals for our interns as outlined in the hyperlinked document in the previous paragraph. For information about our internship's commitment to diversity and preparing interns to serve a diverse public, please review our position on Multicultural and Diversity Competencies and CAPS Diversity Value Statement. 

Please keep in mind that the details about the internship program are our best effort to describe the 2023-2024 training year. Throughout the COVID-19 global pandemic, we have adjusted our services to the needs of students who attended the university remotely and in-person, while adhering to public health guidelines and the university's plan for students, staff, and faculty. These guidelines continue to evolve. We take into consideration legal restrictions on mental-health practice across states. We strive to be mindful of our own resources and limitations to assist staff and interns in managing their workload and well-being.  Therefore, interns' clinical activities and supervision described here represent the expected internship training experience based on what we know at the time of this update.

When pandemic-related changes to services and training have been made, we have aimed to continue to: (a) uphold the quality and integrity of interns’ training, (b) adhere to public health guidelines for the containment of the COVID-19 pandemic, and (c) adhere to APA’s internship accreditation standards. When necessary, the internship program is in consultation with APA's Commission on Accreditation about substantive changes in the training program.

The doctoral internship program at CAPS is accredited by the American Psychological Association Commission on Accreditation (CoA). The CoA can be contacted at the Office of Program Consultation and Accreditation 750 First Street, NE Washington, DC 20002-4242 Phone: 202-336-5979 TDD/TTY: 202-336-6123.

Killexams : 2016 West Coast Forum

Register Now

Asian Pacific Americans comprise the fastest growing demographic in the United States and will increase another 150% by 2050. As they become a greater percentage of the US workforce, it is crucial that we understand the unique challenges APA employees face. Unlike other underrepresented groups, APAs don’t face challenges to professional entry, but rather to professional advancement. For example, in the Bay Area, Asians are the largest racial cohort in the professional workforce (47%) but are not proportionally represented in management: one of every 12 white men and one of every 28 white women in the professional workforce is an executive, yet only one of every 30 Asian American men and one of every 64 Asian American women have reached that level. There needs to be a concerted and thoughtful effort to correct this discrepancy, which includes creating pipelines, supporting mentorship, and nurturing Employee Resource Groups (ERGs).

To fill this critical knowledge gap on the growth, development, and advancement of APA employees, Asia Society created the Asian Pacific Americans Corporate Survey in 2010 to investigate what makes a favorable working experience for APA employees. The Diversity Leadership Forum (DLF) highlights the findings of the Survey and provides a vital platform for businesses and APA professionals to discuss critical corporate diversity issues. To address the West Coast’s unique diversity challenges, Asia Society Northern California (ASNC) launched the West Coast Diversity Leadership Forum in 2016. 

ASNC aims to:

• Determine and highlight best practices for recruitment, retention, and promotion
• Linking key stakeholders: APA employees, D&I leaders, hiring managers, and leadership experts
• Be a content resource for companies, employees, and D&I leaders

The 2017 Diversity Leadership Forum is the cornerstone of our diversity initiative, and serves to both connect key stakeholders and highlight best practices. The full-day conference will launch the report and feature keynotes, panel discussions, and breakout sessions as well as a private dinner for executive-level participants. Many of the panels and breakout sessions will address various aspects of Employee Resource Groups and will draw heavily from the report and discussions at the bootcamps, as well as feature speakers who presented at or attended the bootcamps. The event targets mid-level through C-suite employees of major West Coast companies with a focus on technology firms. We are pleased to launch our “crowd-sourced” guide for Employee Resource Groups.

Killexams : APA Leaders Talk Growth Spurt, Yucaipa Investment and Dealing With DOJ on CAA-ICM Acquisition

In a moment of crisis, the leaders of talent agency APA were not about to let opportunity pass them by. 

The dramatic changes that have swept across the content business and Hollywood’s creative community have made for a topsy-turvy ride for the town’s major tenpercenteries: The packaging battle between talent agencies and the Writers Guild of America in 2019 followed by pandemic disruption left sizable agencies — APA among them — in a precarious state. 

But after a swirl of dealmaking, blocking, tackling and talent-wooing, APA leaders Jim Gosnell and Jim Osborne (aka “the Jims”) are heading into 2023 with more confidence than ever about cementing the agency’s position as the leading full-service, midsize alternative to the Big Three: WME, CAA and UTA.  

“During the pandemic, everybody got punched in the stomach pretty hard because everything just came to a screeching halt,” says Gosnell, who is APA’s CEO, while Osborne is president. “Necessity forces you to look at your business in a different way.”  

The pair have recruited 15 (and counting) seasoned agents to the firm in a bold bid to grow in new and established areas — including TV and film lit, publishing, theater, branding, consulting and helping to enable entrepreneurial ventures on behalf of clients. Simply put, the Jims saw a big chance to make APA more prosperous and a more attractive shop for working Hollywood. 

“There’s never been a better time to be an actor in terms of the amount of opportunities,” Osborne says. “There’s a great deal of competition for high-end talent, and that’s bringing the ability for these artists to build out production entities and shift from simply working in a fee-based situation to being part of the ownership of the content and having a real voice in its creation. We’re moving to less acting for hire, more building your own content.” 

The APA pair point to Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson as a good example of a client that is growing in many directions at once and bringing the agency into new arenas. The multihyphenate producer, actor and musician has no less than 22 TV series in production or development, including four scripted dramas in the “Power” universe alone.

Sandra Stern, vice chairman of Lionsgate Television Group, the studio home of the “Power”-verse, credits APA with providing Jackson and the “Power” shows with strong support at every stage of production.

“They service their talent very well over there,” Stern said. Lionsgate began doing more and more business with APA over the past decade as demand for TV content has mushroomed. “They have a deep list of clients that we hadn’t really been doing business with until recently. They represent a significant amount of talent in the ‘Power’-verse. They really are good partners with us.”

APA’s expansion plan was only possible because of a fortuitous relationship that Osborne drove for the firm in the dark days of fall 2020. He helped enlist investor Ron Burkle, of Yucaipa Co., to put capital into the agency to shore it up through the unprecedented business shutdowns of 2020 and 2021. 

Gosnell and Osborne developed a strategic plan for capitalizing on the inevitable talent fallout from the union of CAA and ICM, which closed in June. Before that, the APA leaders were peppered by Justice Department investigators for months on the potential antitrust implications, which held up the closing for more than a year. 

“We had a lot of time to position ourselves to find out who would be a good match for us and where we needed the extra power. It was a long process,” Osborne says. 

Gosnell, who has rolled with the tides at APA since 1981, chuckles at the experience of trying to explain the ins and outs of agenting to DOJ lawyers. The firm formerly known as Agency for the Performing Arts was one of several shingles created when Robert F. Kennedy’s Justice Department forced Lew Wasserman to sell off his mighty MCA talent agency as a condition of acquiring Universal Pictures in 1962. 

As APA heads into its 60th anniversary year in 2023, Gosnell is revved up about his firm’s prospects. Pressed by a DOJ lawyer about an earlier statement that a CAA-ICM marriage would be good for business, Gosnell hesitated for just a moment before replying: “It’s going to be fantastic for us. Clients will become available. Agents will become available. That’s how it’s all going to shake out. It’s going to create opportunity for everybody. And then it’s about who decides to take advantage of it or not.”

Killexams : APA takes over St. Louis County Pet Adoption Center, makes changes on day 1

"It's really a big day for pets in our community," APA President and CEO said.

OLIVETTE, Mo. — Drilling could be heard outside of the St. Louis County Pet Adoption Center Monday morning at 10521 Baur Boulevard in Olivette.

New signs saying 'APA Adoption Center' were hung up out front. 

The Animal Protective Association, known as the APA, officially took over the facility. 

It'll be known as APA Olivette.

This is after a 2019 audit showed poor conditions and concerns of high euthanasia rates.

Some problems the audit included:

  • The volunteer program needs to be better managed
  • Inability to control infectious disease due to overcapacity
  • Cages and kennels not being properly disinfected, which contributes to the spread of disease
  • Not enough animals being transferred to rescue groups

Suggestions included hiring a contractor and a nonprofit partnership.

The APA was awarded a contract to manage the shelter after a County Request For Proposal (RFP) competitive bidding process. 

The APA will still operate its flagship location on Hanley Road in Brentwood while also operating the Olivette location.

Sarah Javier, President and CEO of the APA Adoption Center, believes the APA was selected for its dedicated service in its 100-year history.

The APA has completed more than 4,000 pet adoptions and has served about 6,716 pets through wellness and outreach programming since the beginning of this year.

Javier said pets adoptions take about a week at the APA, whereas the county's center sees cases as long as a year.

A spokesperson for the St. Louis County Health Department shared this statement:

"The APA was awarded a County contract to manage the animal shelter after a competitive bidding process. We are thrilled that the residents of St. Louis County are being served by a partner with the expertise and reputation of the APA, and we look forward to seeing how this partnership improves service to the community."

Javier said the APA already made adjustments on day one. 

"Over the last several months, we’ve been working with St. Louis County Department of Public Health and the officials there to come up with an operating plan for APA," Javier said. "Today is the day that we actually can get inside the building."

Javier said the APA set up computers, plugged in phones, and squared technology issues.

But the animals were at the forefront of the changes. 

When arriving, there were roughly 175 animals.

Javier said that's a lot of animals to care for.

Implementing a foster care program was at the top of the list.

"We know that having a foster care program in place helps us find homes for more animals and makes space in the shelter who need it," she added. 

The APA also invited rescues to take animals.

Another priority was walking dogs.

"There were many animals that had not been out, sometimes for weeks, depending on the situation. We have even hired dog walkers to make sure we have plenty of people, including volunteers, so multiple dogs get walks every day," Javier said. 

Deep cleaning was also a priority to make sure bacteria was removed.

"There were definitely some challenges in part due to staffing," Javier said in regards to the conditions.

She said the facility is almost fully staffed with 40 employees.

There will be employees specializing in direct animal care, an adoption specialist, and those focusing on behavior and enrichment.

"It's really a big day for pets in our community," Javier exclaimed.

If everything goes as planned, APA Olivette will open up Tuesday afternoon to the public for adoptions.

For now, they encourage more foster families to sign up.

Killexams : Who Would Win?: APA Vacatur Versus National Injunction

If you have elementary school age children, you probably know about the "Who Would Win?" books. The conceit is straightforward: posit two animals, and ask which of them would prevail in a struggle. Lion versus tiger, whale versus giant squid, tyrannosaurus rex versus velociraptor. For those who have followed the debate over national injunctions, we now have a new entry in this genre: APA vacatur versus national injunction.

In May, a district court issued a national injunction prohibiting the Biden administration from lifting Title 42, a COVID-related public health order that allows the expulsion of migrants. Yesterday, another district court purported to vacate Title 42 and issued a permanent injunction prohibiting the government from applying Title 42 to members of the plaintiff class.

The injunctions themselves are not quite conflicting: "don't lift Title 42" and "don't apply Title 42 to this class" are not in conflict, because the government can obey both. The former goes to an action the administration might take with regard to the order itself, while the latter goes to actions regarding its enforcement against specified people. (It's standard equity practice to distinguish between the legal rule and its application.) And because the injunction protects the plaintiff class, it is not a "national injunction" or "nationwide injunction" as defined in Multiple Chancellors and other literature on the subject. So we don't yet have two conflicting national injunctions, though once again it's a close run thing.

But there is a stronger inconsistency between the purported vacatur and the injunction. The purported vacatur says that Title 42 for legal purposes does not exist, i.e., it is void and of no effect, annulled. If vacatur is a remedy, then that is exactly what it means. But the injunction says the administration is not allowed to terminate Title 42, which is gobbledygook unless there is such a thing as Title 42.

When I say "if vacatur is a remedy," that's because I don't think it is. Despite its flourishing in the DC Circuit in latest decades, there is no traditional remedy of "vacatur." Scour the legal and equitable remedies and you won't find it. Vacating is an action taken with respect to a judgment. It is not an action taken with respect to a legal norm like a statute or a rule. This is first principles stuff: see Mellon v. Massachusetts, or as Justice Breyer said in his opinion for the Court in California v. Texas, remedies "do not simply operate on legal rules in the abstract."

If you want to read more, the leading work on this is a series of latest pieces by John Harrison, including Vacatur of Rules Under the Administrative Procedure Act and Remand Without Vacatur and the Ab Initio Invalidity of Unlawful Regulations in Administrative Law. The leading source on the other side is Mila Sohoni's The Power to Vacate a Rule.

Saddle up!

Killexams : Therapists say they can’t meet high demand as anxiety, depression linger © Getty Images/iStock

America’s therapists are booked. Six in 10 psychologists say they don’t have openings for new patients, according to a survey conducted by the American Psychological Association.

The high demand for therapy is the latest sign of and ongoing U.S. mental health crisis exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic. Though millions of Americans have returned to normal life, many people feel far from normal. A majority of the psychologists surveyed said that since the start of the pandemic, they’ve seen an uptick in patients who are dealing with anxiety, depression and trauma, and that the demand for services continues to remain high.

“We had a workforce shortage before the pandemic where we just didn’t have enough therapists to meet the mental health needs of this country,” said Vaile Wright, a senior director of health-care innovation at the American Psychological Association. “And that’s only gotten worse.”

The APA survey was conducted Sept. 20 to Oct. 7 among 2,294 doctoral-level psychologists who are licensed and active in the United States. The survey was distributed to 62,900 psychologists for whom the APA has contact information, accounting for about half of U.S. psychologists, the organization said.

The association started conducting the annual survey three years ago, when the pandemic first hit, and Wright said the latest survey shows “things are not improving” for practitioners or their patients.

Parker Hilton, a licensed professional counselor in Red Bank, N.J., told The Washington Post that he recently “started from scratch” and launched his own private practice at the beginning of October. Six weeks in, he’s already fully booked, meeting with up to 35 patients per week. Hilton said he’s seeing more people who are asking “big, wide questions” in existential conversations about meaning and purpose to life.

“What I’m seeing more than anything is people who want to connect, people who feel alone, people who feel really lost,” he said.

Susan Duncan, a licensed professional counselor in Tucson, said she doesn’t know any other therapists in Tucson who are taking new appointments. Many aren’t even picking up their phone, she told The Post, because they’re so busy meeting with their patients.

“I’m turning a lot of people away, and it’s heartbreaking. It’s really heart breaking,” Duncan said. “I think a lot of therapists are just really over — they’re maxed out.”

She said anxiety issues, particularly among young people, are common.

“The young women I am seeing, I am just blown away with the anxiety,” Duncan said. “It’s this physical manifestation of anxiety, which I hadn’t seen to this extent before.”

A psychiatry wait list had 880 patients; a hospital couldn’t keep up

In the APA survey, 51 percent of psychologists reported seeing higher rates of teens seeking therapy since the beginning of the pandemic. Hilton said that in the past, youths used to go “kicking and screaming” to appointments. Now they’re telling their parents they want to go, he said.

A survey conducted last year by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found teens and young adults have been the most stressed by the pandemic and the effect it has had on their lives.

“I know kids who lost all of their grandparents in the course of a couple of months,” said Leah Seeger, a marriage and family therapist and licensed alcohol and drug counselor based in Minneapolis. “It’s a big impact to navigate those big losses. And when they happen much faster, it’s harder.”

Roughly 7 in 10 public schools are reporting a rise in students seeking mental health services since the start of the pandemic, according to federal data released in May. And Congress has allocated hundreds of millions of dollars to fund and hire staffers for mental health support at schools across the country.

Yuliana Nemes, a licensed marriage and family therapist in Upland, Calif., said teens and young adults don’t seem to attach the same stigma around therapy as older generations may have. Regardless of their age, Nemes said, her new patients often come in because of symptoms of anxiety, depression “or lack of motivation.”

10 ways to get mental health help during a therapist shortage

Nearly half of the therapists surveyed by the APA said they have also seen an increase in patients seeking treatment for substance use disorders. Amid shutdowns in the first months of the pandemic, some people turned to alcohol to cope. Alcohol-related deaths in the United States hit the highest rate in decades during the pandemic. Seeger said she believes people are now starting to notice that their addictions are a problem.

“A lot of times, we don’t realize there’s a problem until months or weeks or years later,” she said.

Seeger said the question she has been trying to help people answer lately is: What do we do now?

“We are now dealing with the aftermath of what happened in those years,” Seeger said. “If your family business closed down because of the pandemic, you might be in a crisis moment dealing with it, but the effects after that are still going to show up in people’s psychological experience weeks, months or years afterwards.”
