Fellowship in Adolescent Psychology
McLean Hospital's 3East Adolescent DBT Services is seeking two qualified applicants for the Beckwitt-Hughey postdoctoral fellowship in adolescent clinical psychology. The fellowship is open to both psychologists and social workers and will offer a mentored clinical training opportunity for a postdoctoral student in the treatment of emerging borderline personality disorder (BPD) in adolescents. Under the supervision of 3East's ector of training, Michael Hollander, Ph.D., the fellow will acquire knowledge in evidence-based treatments for BPD, with a focus on dialectical behavioral therapy. The 3East clinical fellowship will serve to expand the number of clinicians with specific expertise in treating patients with this disorder, thus expanding the knowledge base and allowing more patients to receive specialized care. The successful candidate will have had training in DBT and have had clinical experience with adolescents. This is a full-time, 12-month position starting September 1, 2019.
