Abstract

Understanding the structure of internship training is important for at least 2 reasons. First, the field needs an accurate and comprehensive picture of what internships are currently teaching clinical and counseling psychologists. Second, the field needs to understand this structure in order to reflect on how well these training patterns are preparing new clinical and counseling psychologists for the realities of professional practice in today's market. This article presents a comprehensive description of the current training structure and considers the relationship between that structure and projected workforce needs and opportunities for clinical providers.
