About Temple University

Temple University is a part of the commonwealth system of Higher Education in Pennsylvania. It is a comprehensive public research university, founded by Russell H. Conwell in 1884. While historically Temple has been primarily a commuter university, there is a growing residence hall population of over 6,000 students, with many thousands more living right off campus. In recent years, main campus has developed into an extremely busy, active and vibrant setting where students pursue their academic studies along with access to all the leisure, athletic and community activities and resources typical of a major research university. Specifically, the student body is comprised of about 22,000 full time students (undergraduate, graduate, and professional students including programs in medicine, law, business, nursing, dentistry and podiatry) and approximately 12,000 part time students. The university is committed to maintaining a diverse educational community that typically averages about 50%-55% Caucasians, 20%-25% African Americans, 5-10% Asian Americans, 3%-5% Latinos, less than 1% Native Americans, and 5% of multi-racial or unidentified ethnicity. In addition, over 1,000 students are from countries outside of the USA. The main campus of Temple University is conveniently located in North Philadelphia and easily accessible by public transportation from downtown Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. Approximately one mile due north is the Health Sciences Campus, which includes schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Dentistry and there are additional regional campuses at Ambler and in downtown Philadelphia including the School of Podiatry. Professional schools of Law, Business, Engineering and Communications are located at Main Campus. Temple University is committed to providing equal educational and employment opportunities for all persons without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, lifestyle, sexual orientation, or disabilities.

 

Predoctoral Internship

Temple University's Tuttleman Counseling Services offers a one year full-time pre-doctoral training program for doctoral students in counseling or clinical psychology.

Doctoral students in counseling psychology, clinical psychology, and closely related fields who have completed all course work and practica, with the exception of the dissertation are invited to apply. There are currently four full time predoctoral internship positions available at TCS.

The internship begins two weeks prior to the start of the Fall semester, typically late August. Interns devote their time to providing clinical assessment and individual, conjoint and group psychotherapy for students, covering walk-in clinic (WIC), offering psychological testing, receiving supervision and training, attending departmental meetings and seminars, and being responsible for administrative activities such as record keeping, scheduling etc. The opportunity for supervision of masters and doctoral practicum students is also available. Students are also encouraged to develop their own professional interests.

Temple is committed to providing equal educational and employment opportunities for all persons without regard to race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation or physical ability.

The internship experience is divided among three major activities:

- Direct clinical services to Temple students
- Supervision and training activities
- Administrative activities

Post-Graduate Counseling Fellowship

Temple University’s Tuttleman Counseling Services (TCS) offers a one year full-time counseling fellowship. Recipients are usually students who have completed the doctorate in counseling or clinical psychology, or who have completed all course work and are scheduled to complete an APPIC-affiliated or APA-accredited internship by August 15. There are currently four full time counseling fellowship positions available at TCS.  The fellowship begins in mid-August, two weeks prior to the start of the fall semester. Fellows devote their time to providing individual and group psychotherapy for students, assisting with walk-in clinic (WIC), receiving supervision, providing consultation to families, staff and faculty, attending departmental meetings and seminars, and being responsible for administrative activities such as record keeping, scheduling, etc.

The counseling fellowship is designed to provide comprehensive training experiences and supervision that will facilitate the development of independent professionals. A primary goal of the program is to assist fellows in strengthening their diagnostic and clinical skills and integrating these skills into their professional identity. As such, the postdoctoral year marks a significant developmental transition toward more autonomous practice. Fellows are also encouraged to develop other professional interests as time allows and may have opportunities to assist with outreach opportunities, lecturing, trauma response, and research.

Temple is committed to providing equal educational and employment opportunities for all persons without regard to race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation or physical ability.

Practicum Externship

Doctoral and Master’s students in counseling, clinical psychology, social work or a related program are invited to gain experience through a nine month practicum training program at Tuttleman Counseling Services. We are dedicated to providing a high quality clinical experience in a multicultural setting, serving a student population of richly diverse ethnic, racial, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Practicum students spend a minimum of two and one-half full days per week at Tuttleman Counseling Services but may contract for more hours if required by their educational institution. Time is devoted to counseling students, receiving supervision individually and in groups, and accepting responsibility for essential administrative work such as record keeping and scheduling. Opportunities are also available to conduct group therapy.

Trainees receive one hour of individual supervision and 90 minutes of group supervision weekly. Senior staff is readily available for additional, informal consultation and supervision when needed. Trainees also participate in a weekly case conference. Periodically, trainees are offered seminars led by Tuttleman Counseling Services staff and by invited speakers. Topics may include multicultural issues in counseling, psychopharmacology, critical incident stress management (CISM), treatment of addictions, anxiety, eating disorders, and more.

 

Application Procedure

A resume and an in-person interview are required. Women and persons of color are encouraged to apply. Interested students should send a resume, two letters of reference, a copy of their current graduate school transcript and a cover letter. Applicants for the 2015-2016 academic year should be sent prior to 1/15/2015.
