POST-GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP

Temple University’s Tuttleman Counseling Services (TCS) offers a one year full-time counseling fellowship. Fellows are students who have completed a doctorate in counseling or clinical psychology, will complete an APPIC-affiliated or APA-accredited internship by August 15, and are looking for advanced training in a college or university counseling center. There are currently four full time counseling fellowship positions available at TCS. The fellowship begins in mid-August, two weeks prior to the start of the fall semester. Fellows devote their time to providing individual and group psychotherapy for students, assisting with walk-in clinic (WIC), receiving supervision, providing consultation to families, staff and faculty, attending departmental meetings and seminars, and being responsible for administrative activities such as record keeping, scheduling, etc. Fellows are expected to work one evening per week (either Tuesday or Wednesday) and occasional Saturday morning hours (about two Saturdays a semester from 9am-1pm).

The counseling fellowship is designed to provide a comprehensive training experience and supervision that facilitates the development of an independent professional. A primary goal of the program is to assist fellows in strengthening their diagnostic and clinical skills and integrating these skills into their professional identity. As such, the postdoctoral year marks a significant developmental transition toward more autonomous practice. Fellows are also encouraged to develop other professional interests as time allows and may have opportunities to assist with outreach opportunities, lecturing, trauma response, and research.  Fellows participate in a year-long, approximately 10 hours/week minor rotation through one of TCS’s specialized units: Sexual Assault Counseling and Education (SACE), Campus Alcohol and Substance Awareness (CASA), Eating and Body Image Concerns, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Fellows are asked to rank-order their preference for one of the four specialized units to which they are then assigned.  It should be noted that while the units have specific missions and specialized areas of expertise, TCS and its staff functions as an integrated and collaborative multidisciplinary team of which its fellows are an essential component; fellows on any unit will work with all types of client concerns.

The stipend is $34,000 this includes basic student health insurance and dental coverage. We offer 10 vacation days, 5 sick days and 5 days professional development.  Fellows have access to university libraries, email, Internet, rec facilities and cultural and athletic events.

Temple is committed to providing equal educational and employment opportunities for all persons without regard to race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation or physical ability.
