The Community Health Center Difference
The Postdoctoral Psychology Residency Program at CHC provides comprehensive training in the provision of psychological care to uninsured and underserved populations under the CHC patient-centered medical home model, with a focus on positive client outcomes and building healthy communities.
We believe this is the future of psychology and are committed to teaching and training the next generation of diverse and talented behavioral health providers within this model.
Integrated behavioral health services are provided in 18 licensed clinics, more than 100 school based health centers, and programs in domestic violence and homeless shelters across Connecticut.
The CHC headquarters is located in Middletown, CT, with primary training locations in the Clinton, Danbury, Hartford, Middletown, Meriden, New Britain, New London, Norwalk, Stamford, and Waterbury sites, with some service delivery possible at other sites.
Residents are given a “home office” location at one or more sites and may see patients in schools, shelters, and other non-traditional treatment settings. Residents will have the opportunity to provide services both in person and via telehealth.
Throughout the year, New Innovations will be utilized to maintain an ongoing evaluation of residents’ experiences and growth, as well as evaluation of the program and individual seminars.
Through teleconferencing, CHC is able to provide face-to-face supervision to our residents and full-time access to the training director and supervisors.
Residents will complete postdoctoral hours needed to meet the requirements to be eligible for licensure in the state of Connecticut.
CHC’s Postdoctoral Clinical Psychology Residency Program is fully accredited as of 2020 by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association.
