Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship in Psychosis Treatment and Recovery

The University of Washington School of Medicine’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is recruiting for a one-year psychology postdoctoral fellowship in psychosis treatment and recovery for the 2019-2020 Academic Year.
 
The postdoctoral fellowship is intended to provide intensive and specialized training in psychosis treatment and recovery. Fellows will be based in the
Evidence Based Practices for Adults lab, under the direct supervision of Sarah Kopelovich, PhD, Maria Monroe-DeVita, PhD, and Lydia Chwastiak, MD, MPH. They will be exposed to and participate in implementation and mental health services research on evidence based treatments and promising practices for psychotic spectrum disorders. In addition, fellows will have the opportunity to gain clinical experience directly providing and training others in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for psychosis, Individual Resiliency Training, and/or Cognitive Remediation to adults with both first episode and persistent psychosis. Fellows will also participate in a novel assessment service to help clinicians across the state to better identify, diagnose, and manage psychotic conditions. Postdoctoral fellows will receive supervised clinical training sufficient for licensure eligibility.

The primary setting for the psychosis treatment and recovery fellowship will be the Behavioral Health Institute at Harborview Medical Center, based at the University of Washington in downtown
Seattle.
