School Psychology: Interns

Meet our current interns.

Berkeley Psychology Internship Consortium (B-PIC) interns work in one of three school districts. Each district has the same commitment to the same training goals and to provide comprehensive clinical experiences for the interns. Interns are encouraged to seek out training opportunities that align with their interests, special skills, and unique backgrounds. They work with clients ranging in age from preschool through adulthood and across different levels of schooling. Each intern has a primary supervisor who is also an employee of the school district. Interns also receive group supervision from B-PIC Training Committee members.
