Fellows in the postdoctoral program work as clinicians on one or more of The Menninger Clinic’s adult specialty treatment programs
As a member of an interdisciplinary treatment team, fellows integrate diagnostic formulations into treatment planning; meet with the rest of the team in weekly rounds; and provide individual evaluation and therapy services as well as family evaluation, therapy and discharge planning for patients.
In addition, testing and evaluation are major components of training with fellows participating in didactic seminars and intensive supervision in these areas.
Fellows also conduct group and individual therapy for patients. They see several patients two to three times per week for individual therapy and co-lead group therapy. In total, fellows carry four to eight hours per week of individual and group therapy, family therapy and/or family intervention in addition to other clinical duties.
Fellows are encouraged to become involved in Menninger’s research activities and work on theoretical treatment models.
