Subject: UCS post doc

University of Southern California Los Angeles, California
* *
The University of Southern California (USC) is an urban private research
university located near downtown Los Angeles. USC has a population of
32,000 students, which includes undergraduate, graduate and professional
degree students. USC has one of the largest international student
populations in the United States.

The training of Postdoctoral Fellows at USC's Student Counseling
Services
and Disability Services and Programs is an endeavor that is fully
supported
by our staff. The staff trains mental health professionals at different
developmental levels (such as Practicum Counselors, Social Work Interns,
Psychological Interns and Postdoctoral Fellows). Additionally, the USC
Student Counseling Services has an APA accredited predoctoral internship
program.

As an APPIC member postdoctoral training program, our primary goal and
purpose is to provide opportunities, structure and support that will
help
develop clinically competent, diversity and culturally sensitive and
highly
ethical Postdoctoral Fellows as they prepare for licensure and for an
entry
level psychologist position. Our program offers a variety of clinical,
supervisory, consultative and administrative experiences that are
intended
to provide a clear picture of what it is like to work as a staff
psychologist both at a university counseling center and a disability
services program. We believe the unique combination of college mental
health services and disability services provides a niche as our
profession
of psychology has begun to address these issues more in recent years
since
the implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The central training goal of the program is that the Postdoctoral
Fellows
complete their fellowship with advanced knowledge, confidence, and
competence in the following areas of clinical practice:

. short term therapy

. group counseling

. awareness and appreciation of human diversity, including
diversity
related to disability issues

. professional ethics and decision making

. clinical assessment, including psychological assessment of
learning disabilities and ADHD

. crisis intervention

. clinical supervision

. outreach and consultation

Licensing Requirements:

Satisfactory completion of the postdoctoral training program meets
postdoctoral supervised practice requirements for licensure in the State
of
California.

The training methods include the following:

1. *Direct Service*: individual, couples and

group counseling; crisis intervention;

2. *Supervision*: individual supervision (4 hours a week) and
supervision of groups and supervision of supervision (1 hour a week) ;

3. *Clinical conferences*: intake conferences and diversity case
conferences;

4. *Training seminars*: Disability assistance seminars,
professional
development series in crisis intervention, outreach and consultation,
psychiatric consultation, and outside speaker series in addition to a
choice
of four interns' seminars (at least 2 seminar hours weekly);

5. *Psychoeducational assessment*: learning disabilities and
ADHD.

6. *Outreach and consultation*: working with campus departments,
including faculty, staff, and student groups.

The USC Community:

The postdoctoral program's training resources are drawn from the Student
Counseling Services and Disability Services and Programs. About 1,200
students each year utilize the Student Counseling Services for
counseling
and psychotherapy. Another 2,200 students, faculty and staff are served
via
outreach and consultation. About 1,500 students utilize the Center for
Academic Support-Disability Services and Programs for academic
assistance
and accommodations.

Training Staff and Office Location:

The training staff at the Student Counseling Services includes eight (8)
psychologists, one (1) psychiatrist and one (1) clinical social worker.
The
training staff at the Center for Academic Support-Disability Services
and
Programs includes two (2) psychologists and one (1) disability education
specialist.

Our Postdoctoral Fellow provides services and receives training at both
Centers. The Postdoctoral Fellow's office is located at the Center for
Academic Support-Disability Services and Programs. The Fellow is
supervised
primarily by the two supervisors listed in this brochure.

Evaluation of Postdoctoral Fellow:

The Fellow is evaluated formally twice a year. Senior staff members
meet
for supervision of supervision on a weekly basis. The training
coordinators
ask for feedback from senior staff members regarding their observation

Click link below for complete job description

About the Ounce Research Project:
The Ounce Research Project (ORP) is a study about how using The Ounce ScaleT affects childcare providers and parents' knowledge and understanding of their infants and toddlers. The Ounce Scale^TM is an observation tool for caregivers and parents to learn about the development of an infant or toddler. In this study, one group of child care providers will receive Ounce training in the fall of 2006 and the second group will receive it in the fall of 2007. From September, 2006 to October, 2007, we will collect information from the child care providers and parents by talking with them, videotaping them, and asking them to fill out a survey. The information we collect will help us know what child care providers and parents learn by using The Ounce Scale and how to improve Ounce training.

Job Description:
To collect data from child care providers and parents who are participating in the ORP.

You will talk with providers and parents over the phone and audiotape part of the conversation. You will go to the child care setting (family child care home or infant-toddler room in a child care center) and videotape the child care provider caring for the child. You will observe what is going on during the videotaping and take notes. You will send all your information back to the University. The University will provide all equipment and paperwork needed to complete the tasks.

We will hold a training session beforehand so you can learn how to do each part of the data collection.

Data collection will occur at three times between September, 2006 and October, 2007: September-October, 2006; March-April, 2007; and September-October, 2007. We prefer candidates who can commit to participating at all three data collection times between August, 2006 and October, 2007.

RE: Mental Health Resources for Students

The new Student Mental Health web site www.mentalhealth.umn.edu is a web resource designed for students, their parents, faculty, and staff who are looking for student mental health information and related resources at the University of Minnesota. We recommend that you bookmark this site.

According to a recent survey, nearly half of all college students report feeling so depressed that they have trouble functioning, and 15 percent meet the criteria for clinical depression. Untreated depression can lead to suicide, which is the second leading cause of death among college students. Students can access mental health services at:

• Boynton Health Service (http://www.bhs.umn.edu/services/mentalhealth.htm), and
• University Counseling and Consulting Services (http://www.ucs.umn.edu/).

Additional University resources you should be aware of to assist students are:

Disability Services (http://ds.umn.edu) provides assistance with academic accommodations for students with diagnosed mental health conditions. Consultation and problem-solving regarding disability issues is available for faculty, staff, and supervisors.

The Center for Teaching and Learning (http://www1.umn.edu/ohr/teachlearn/) provides a number of workshops and programs which are designed to help teaching assistants and faculty to deal with a variety of classroom situations, including those related to students who may have a mental illness or disability.

The Wellstone Bill is Back

The fight for mental health fairness is on again, and we need your help to finally pass the Wellstone bill. For years, Paul Wellstone fought for a bill to end discrimination by insurance companies against people struggling with mental illness. When he died, a bipartisan group of representatives and senators renamed the bill after Wellstone and recruited a majority of their colleagues to sign on as co-sponsors. A new House version of the bill, called the Paul Wellstone Mental Health and Addiction Equity Act, will be introduced in the coming days. The Senate will take up a companion bill, and we'll be asking you to join us in fighting to make it as strong as the House bill.

The chances of passing the Wellstone bill are better than ever, but we’ve been down this road before. Powerful economic interests will do everything they can to weaken legislation that ends mental health discrimination. We need your help to pass this important bill. The authors of the House version of the bill, Congressmen Patrick Kennedy and Jim Ramstad, are holding hearings across the country to discuss the bill and take testimony from people whose lives it would impact. We are mobilizing our members to learn more about the issue, advocate for fairness, and be prepared to take action as the two versions of the bill make it through Congress.

Here are three things you can do to help:

1. Learn more about the Wellstone bill and the importance of mental health parity. Click here to read more. http://www.wellstone.org/network/issue_page.aspx?catID=2796

2. Attend one of the national hearings held by Congressmen Kennedy and Ramstad. Click here to see a list of upcoming hearings. http://takeaction.mentalhealthamerica.net/site/PageServer?pagename=Equity_Campaign

3. Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Click here for some talking points. http://www.wellstone.org/network/actionitem_detail.aspx?itemID=9190&catID=2796

In the coming weeks, we will be launching a fax campaign to members of Congress in support of mental health fairness, and we'll ask you to get involved. In the meantime, click here http://www.wellstone.org/network/article_detail.aspx?itemID=9225&catID=2796 to read recent press coverage about the parity effort. As we get updates on the progress of the bill in the House and Senate, we’ll keep you updated at wellstone.org.

REQUIRED CSPP GROUP ADVISING MEETING NEXT WEEK

Student Representative Meeting
Thursday, January 25, 3007
8:15 a.m.

Attendance
Present: Chris Bedford, Leslie Mulder, Anna Roth, Morgan Paldron, Sherri Turner, Kay Herting Wahl

Regrets: Deanne Truax, Kristin Williams

Business: Doctoral students requested that SPSS and a printer be installed in the two computers in the CSPP student lounge. Masters students agreed with this request. Chris Bedford will check with Mark Swoverland regarding the costs of SPSS installation and printer set-up.

Doctoral students also raised concerns about the trend of printing off multiple course readings off WebCT as opposed to being able to buy a course packet in the bookstore. The student reps and faculty briefly discussed the cost benefits for both methods. It was mentioned that faculty may either put course readings on WebCT and students incur the printing costs (if necessary) OR have a course reading packet made at the bookstore, but not both, as the bookstore would not make a return on their investment if the packets were printed but not purchased. The larger issue of how to make the web (WebCT) more user-friendly was also raised.

The issue of CSPP course order was raised on behalf of the second-year M.A. students, who were absent from this meeting. There has been some concern that Assessment of Psych Disorders (Abnormal Psych) comes too late in the course lineup, as students would like this knowledge/experience before beginning their practica. Suggestions were made to change this course with career counseling or ethics, or offer the abnormal psych course in the summer. Another suggestion was made to make the course order distinct for each track so community counseling students could take it in their first year. However, this raises the issue of people who are still deciding which track they will take and missing out on classes. Members of the representative group seemed to agree that there is no perfect solution to course order, and that moving courses around in the order that they are taken can benefit one group of students while disadvantaging other groups (e.g., moving career counseling could disadvantage students who want to take their second year practicum in a career center).

The first-year M.A. students reported several concerns and issues. First, the temperature of Burton Hall 123 is too warm and temperature regulation is unsystematic and unsuccessful (i.e., when the window is opened the students sitting next to the window get too cold). Dr. Turner will contact Sandy Hill to discuss this issue.

Morgan Paldron has organized a library tour for CSPP students/faculty/staff for Thursday 2/1 from 11:30-1:30 in Wilson Library. Meet in the basement of Wilson or walk over from Burton at 11:15am.

There have been two broomball teams established for CSPP, “Ice Therapy� and “Freudian Slip�. They will play on Wednesday nights.

CSPP T-shirts have been designed by Hayley Cluever in the first-year M.A. cohort and will be presented for purchase sometime this semester.

Kay Herting Wahl is organizing a group advising meeting on how to complete a degree programs form. This meeting will occur sometime in February and there will be more details to come.

The faculty is working on building a bank of questions for the written preliminary exam. Ph.D. students who need to sign up for the Spring preliminary exam must do so by the last day of January. A reminder email will be sent out regarding when to sign up for the comprehensive exam in April 2007 (2nd year M.A. students).

A concern was raised by Kay Herting Wahl regarding the spring semester schedule for first-year M.A. school counseling students. This group of students has three classes in a row on Tuesdays. Kay Herting Wahl is working on a solution to this issue.

Faculty are planning an Alumni Luncheon in March to give alumni opportunities to become reacquainted with current CSPP programs, to acknowledge alumni for their distinguished professional service and past support, and to describe opportunities to support the CSPP program and its students through serving on advisory boards, serving as mentors, supervisors, or other types of field work sponsors for current CSPP students, and helping to raise philanthropic support for CSPP programs and students

A possible brown bag series on was discussed and Leslie Mulder was asked to conceptualize important topics and begin working on this.

Graduate Student Research Day will be held on March 9, 2007. This is a day to familiarize oneself with the ongoing work in the Department of Educational Psychology and to become acquainted with the research projects of graduate students. The event will be held in the Mississippi Room in Coffman Memorial Union. Proposals to present in this event can be found at http://www.education.umn.edu/EdPsych/forms/GSRDProposal.doc. Students must have their advisor’s signature before submitting proposals to this event. Newly admitted prospective students will be invited as usual.

Next meeting: Thursday, February 22, 8:15 a.m. in 240 Burton Hall
Any interested students are free to come to this open meeting.

Please send your questions or concerns to your student representatives:
1st year MA Reps.: Leslie Mulder and Anna Roth
2nd year MA Reps.: Kristin Williams and Deanne Truax
PhD Reps.: Morgan Paldron and Chris Bedford
Faculty Reps.: Sherri Turner and Kay Herting-Wahl
