A Clinical Psychology Training Program Interfaces with the Schools.
Winder, Alvin E.
This paper describes how clinical child psychologists are trained in a pediatric psychology program and emphasizes their interface with the school. The need for clinical child psychology training is stressed, and training programs for pediatric psychologists and clinical child psychologists are compared. The collaborative pediatric psychology training program by the Baystate Medical Center Pediatrics Department and the University of Massachusetts Psychology Department is described in detail, including areas of training; i.e., clinical, developmental, and psychosomatic theory in both academic and supervised clinical experiences and academic components. A description of the response to school referrals, involving a collaborative team model of consultation characterized by an interdisciplinary approach to evaluation is also provided. A case study is presented to illustrate the collaborative team model of student assessment in the schools. Benefits of the model are discussed. (JAC)
