Embodying Hope For a Better Future
Our Externs form the front line clinical team of the Capital Therapy Project, our low-fee psychodynamic therapy institute in Downtown DC.
Our Externship program is designed to provide an intensive clinical experience and training rarely available in other training settings.
We emphasize psychodynamic principles in all aspects of the externship program’s clinical services including brief individual psychotherapy, career counseling, and working with DC’s LGBTQ community.
The Externship program is an unpaid 12-month training opportunity that emphasizes the extensive use of technological and supervisory resources. Our aim is to train tomorrow’s psychologists to excel as clinicians and critical thinkers in the evolving landscape of psychodynamic therapy in the digital age.
