ADHD & Disruptive Behavior Disorders Fellowship
Our postdoctoral fellowship, offered through the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, is intended for psychologists who have successfully completed an American Psychological Association–approved internship and wish to refine their skills in behavior therapy, parent–child interaction therapy, school consultation protocols, and structured behavioral school observations and consultations for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other disruptive behavior disorders.
The clinical director of the service is Timothy L. Verduin, PhD.
As a postdoctoral fellow, you conduct school observations and consultations in partnership with educators, committees on special education, and school placement teams. You collaborate with psycho-pharmacologists, learning specialists, and other multidisciplinary team members at the Child Study Center and in school settings.
You also supervise at the Child Study Center’s Summer Program for Kids, a seven-week behavioral day camp for children with ADHD, and summer intensive programs for selective mutism.
In addition to your clinical responsibilities, you coordinate and attend a monthly ADHD seminar series, present assessment and treatment cases at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry’s interdisciplinary case conference, and attend weekly grand rounds, journal clubs, and other specialty trainings in areas of personal interest.
You also help coordinate our monthly Parent Workshop Series and present on ADHD and disruptive behavior disorders topics, as well as attend workshops, seminars, and professional development events at New York City schools and learning centers.
Fellows have opportunities to train and teach junior-level psychology trainees and psychiatry residents and participate in clinical research projects.
You gain advanced knowledge of psychological evaluation, treatment, and consultation and are eligible for state licensure upon completion of your fellowship.
