Predoctoral psychology fellowships are selected into The Stress Center Clinical and Research Program each year. This track consists of a single 12 month placement within The Yale Stress Center Clinical and Research settings.
This track aims to provide fellows with a comprehensive experience in evaluating and treating stress and risk of stress-related disorders, using a range of therapeutic approaches, as well as a closely mentored experience in developing and testing hypotheses related to stress, health, and/or addictive behaviors. Interns are exposed to intensive training in stress reduction techniques, such as meditation, breathing exercises, and gentle yoga. Applicants with experience in mind/body practices are strongly encouraged to apply.
This internship track follows the scientist-practitioner model, training fellows for careers with competence in both scientific research and clinical practice. Interns will work closely with a team of psychologists, dietitians, MBSR instructors, psychiatrists, nurses, and others with training in heath psychology and mind/body approaches. An individualized division of clinical and research training will be determined for each fellow, dependent on strengths and interest and consistent with program training requirements.
Clinical training will be provided within the following programs:
Fellows will develop a research project related to the themes of stress, addictions, health outcomes and behaviors, including testing hypotheses, data analyses, and manuscript development. Weekly team meetings will be held with biostatisticians, research mentors, and research faculty members.
