The Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship at the CSU Health Network is designed to prepare individuals for a staff psychologist position in a university counseling service, with particular emphasis on psychologists wishing to specialize in issues related to alcohol and other drug use. The primary focus of this fellowship track is on obtaining specialized training working with both mandated and voluntary students as part of a multidisciplinary treatment team. The Fellow’s clinical hours will be divided between facilitation of psycho-educational workshops, national best practice programs such as BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students), individual therapy with a focus on Motivational Interviewing, harm reduction groups, and participation in the Open to Change (OTC) multidisciplinary treatment team. OTC is an innovative program, designed for working with students who are in need of substance use treatment and includes two tracks. Track A is a shorter amount of time and less intensive. Track B includes multiple phases and an aftercare component. The Fellow will have the unique opportunity to participate in all aspects of this multidisciplinary program, which uses a combination of sanctions and incentives to encourage positive change, while providing individualized treatment, psycho-education, and compliance monitoring. Approximately 75-85% of students in the DAY Program are typically mandated through the university conduct system; however, the Fellow will also work with a growing voluntary population of students whose goals are abstinence or decreased use.
The secondary focus of the Fellowship includes obtaining specialized training in the area of primary care behavioral health in the medical center of our integrated health unit. Additionally, the Fellow may participate in crisis intervention and university-based outreach and prevention services including advocacy and social justice interventions. The Postdoctoral Fellow is involved in advanced clinical training experiences through both supervision and participation in didactic seminars. Fellows may have the opportunity to co-facilitate a seminar for less advanced trainees. Seminar participation is negotiated with each Fellow individually, based on experience and training needs.
