Examples may include leading a variety of psychotherapy groups and performing psychological assessment. In addition the second year provides an opportunity to work with populations that were otherwise not seen in the first year (i.e., children, adolescents, the elderly, patients with psychotic states, and couples). In addition, didactic seminars and guest speakers cover different topic areas from year to year.
