CIIS strives to provide culturally informed holistically based services to students, faculty, staff, and the Bay Area community. This goal will be supported by the CAPIC Predoctoral Internship and Postdoctoral Fellowship in clinical/counseling psychology focused on direct service delivery to students, outreach and consultation to campus community, and on training of graduate students in clinical psychology.

We are currently searching for 2 Postdoctoral Fellows to join us for the upcoming training year, starting August 4, 2021 and ending July 29, 2022. The Postdoctoral Fellowship requires a commitment of 19 hours per week; Fellows will accumulate approximately 850 hours towards the required 1500 supervised postdoctoral hours in California. Postdoctoral Fellows will receive time off, which will primarily follow the school holiday schedule (2 weeks for the Winter break, 1 week for Spring break, and 1 week of their choosing, which would include time off/sick time).

This Fellowship will enable Postdoctoral Fellows to practice from a relational psychodynamic theoretical framework. Fellows will also learn how to provide brief psychodynamic psychotherapy. Postdoctoral Fellows will join our Pre-doctoral intern for two weekly didactic seminars, case conference, and group supervision. Training topics include: Clinical Seminar, Theory and Technique, Jungian Psychoanalysis, Liberation Psychology, Couples Therapy, Group Therapy, Multiculturalism and Diversity, Professional Development, Outreach and Consultation, and Supervision of Supervision. Multicultural training is emphasized throughout the didactic and supervisory experiences.

Postdoctoral Fellows will report directly to the Director of Psychological Services Center and the Dean of Students. Postdoctoral Fellows will also receive group supervision by the Student Wellness Development Committee, an interdepartmental taskforce created to deepen and expand institutional goals in this area, on a monthly basis.
