Duke University Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is a University-supported agency that serves Duke's undergraduate, graduate and professional student body by providing psychological and psychiatric services, outreach programs, as well as consultation services for the entire University community. CAPS uses an integrated multidisciplinary model in the delivery of a comprehensive range of services to a primarily late adolescent, early adult population. In addition to depression, anxiety disorders, and normal developmental issues, CAPS clients frequently present for eating disorders or body image concerns, concerns around coming out, identity development, and the intersection of clinical and cross-cultural concerns, reflecting an increasingly diverse and international Duke community. CAPS provides a unique opportunity for residents to gain experience working with some of these problems. The senior staff includes psychiatrists, clinical and counseling psychologists, clinical social workers, and clinical mental health counselors, some of whom have faculty appointments in the Department of Psychiatry. Trainees in all disciplines rotate annually on the service.
Three positions for PGY-4 residents are available two (2) half-days per week minimum for the period Aug 1 through May 31. PGY-3 residents may also be assigned to one or more of these positions. Availability permitting, supervision is by any member of the senior staff, and supervisors may be changed at mid-year to provide a variety of expertise, if desired. One hour of individual supervision per week is provided. Ad hoc consultation/supervision is readily available and encouraged.

The internship for social work students is designed with the understanding that social workers in the mental health setting must be competent in applying knowledge and skills in areas such as clinical assessment, case conceptualization, and intervention within diverse populations.
Students are provided with an opportunity to apply the biopsychosocial model as they critically examine cases through various theoretical lenses such as brief therapy, psychodynamic, strengths-perspective, and feminist theories.
Opportunities for clinical training are varied in nature as students collaborate with an interdisciplinary team to address the needs of the client populations they serve.
Training also includes but is not limited to the following: clinical assessment, individual, couples and group therapy, campus consultation, case management, and preventive educational programming.
Interns will be provided with opportunities to explore the implications of mental health policy on a given population and participate in community outreach and advocacy in order to gain skills in working towards social justice and issues of equality.Click Here for More information and Brochure
