An entity of Chestnut Hill College, CHC-PSC is the primary training clinic for students in Chestnut Hill College’s clinical psychology doctoral program. Both the doctoral program and the training clinic are accredited by the American Psychological Association.
The training of future generations of psychologists is a central element of our mission. All services at CHC-PSC are provided by advanced-standing doctoral psychology trainees and closely supervised by licensed psychologists on the graduate faculty at Chestnut Hill College. Psychology trainees meet regularly with their faculty supervisors to discuss and receive guidance on their clinical work, to formulate assessment and intervention plans, and to ensure that the assessment and treatment they provide is evidence-based and effective. Supervisors work with psychology trainees behind the scenes and occasionally observe their clinical work in person at the clinic. Supervisors periodically review audio or video recordings of trainees’ work (with client consent) in order to be able to provide detailed and specific guidance. CHC-PSC supervisors possess substantial expertise and experience in many areas of clinical practice and constitute an invaluable resource and essential source of clinical knowledge, wisdom, and support for psychology trainees. The intensive and multifaceted supervision that all trainees receive ensures quality services for all clients served by the PSC.
