for Students and Faculty from Native American Colleges and Universities
Program Description: July 19 - July 26, 2014
This intensive one-week program will provide a unique introduction to child development and child mental health, with an emphasis on prevention, detection, and treatment of developmental and mental disorders in children. The course will be of greatest interest to students interested in psychology, social work and related professions. We particularly wish to encourage pairs of students and teachers to apply. Students or faculty can also apply independently. Up to 10 persons will be selected to participate. Following a morning of welcome and orientation the student/faculty pairs will be enrolled in one of the following week long training experiences:
- Early Childhood – Fostering Healthy Development and Prevention of Emotional and Developmental Disorders
- Substance Abuse – Prevention and Treatment Approaches
- Childhood Mental Health – Diagnosis and Treatment Approaches
The entire group will meet each day for lunch with a series of faculty speakers providing an overview of the range of research and clinical activities at the Center.
Included in this internship for each student selected will be round trip transportation, lodging at the Courtyard Marriott at Yale (please note two people will be sharing a double occupancy room), and a stipend to cover the cost of meals not provided by the center for the week period. All students will be requested to arrive on Saturday, April 19th.
