CAPS is searching for three qualified and passionate post-doctoral Psychology Residents for a one-year appointment. Our ideal candidates are committed to providing high quality clinical and culturally-responsive services that integrate multicultural, equity and social justice frameworks into practice. Candidates must demonstrate competency in their theoretical orientation and be able to explain how their therapeutic practice derives from an identified theory. They must also be versed with providing short-term services. Thus is a
full-time, 12-month Psychology Residency (post-doc) designed to meet the
criteria for licensure in the State of FL. We offer two separate tracks at CAPS; generalist (2)
and sport psychology (1).

skills in the full range of clinical, supervision, outreach, consultation, and
crisis services typical of a large university counseling center. Additionally,
residents develop a specialized training experience to fill gaps in training or
provide greater depth in an area of particular interest (examples are provided on our website). This postdoctoral position will prepare residents to be full staff
members at a university counseling center with a clear specialization. Clinical services to be provided include: initial assessment/intakes, individual and relationship counseling, group therapy, outreach, consultation, and crisis intervention. Post-Doctoral Psychology Residents will participate in our practicum and APA-Accredited Doctoral Internship training programs. Priority will be given to candidates with university counseling center experience, experience providing services to underrepresented and marginalized identities, and bilingual (Spanish, Haitian Creole, French, Portuguese) therapists.
