Applicants’ graduate schools are required to provide a fieldwork supervisor who is responsible for ongoing communication and liaison with CAPTP, professional liability insurance coverage for the clinical work of their graduate students, and a letter of agreement between the graduate school and the Institute. Acceptance to the externship is conditional on creation of such a letter of agreement prior to the start of the externship.
With this application, please include your CV and a copy of a psychological testing report concerning a child or teenager whom you have tested. Also arrange to have two letters of recommendation sent as soon as possible. Your graduate school must send a letter confirming that you are a student in good standing. Finally, applicants must submit proof of liability insurance coverage, either their own or their school’s umbrella coverage.
