Anxiety & Mood Disorders in Children Fellowship
NYU Grossman School of Medicine offers the 12-month Fellowship in Anxiety and Mood Disorders at the Anita Saltz Institute for Anxiety and Mood Disorders, part of the Child Study Center at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.
The 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 would like to refine their skills in cognitive behavioral treatment approaches and dialectical behavior therapy for children and adolescents with anxiety, mood, and other internalizing disorders.
The clinical director of service is Aleta G. Angelosante, PhD
Working closely with a multidisciplinary team of psychologists and social workers, fellows perform diagnostic assessments and provide empirically supported treatments for youth with anxiety and mood disorders, co-lead parent workshops and psychosocial treatment groups for social anxiety, and serve as co-therapists in an intensive anxiety and obsessive–compulsive disorder program.
We are seeking candidates with a strong background in dialectical behavior therapy who are looking to develop these skills, while also building skills in other treatment modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure and response prevention, and habit reversal training. Approximately one-third of clinical hours during this fellowship are devoted to dialectical behavioral therapy interventions (therapy, groups, etc.).
You also have opportunities to participate in specialty programs within the anxiety and mood disorder service. These include the following:
- dialectical behavior therapy, a cognitive behavioral treatment that combines individual psychotherapy with group skills training classes for mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness
- the Tics, Tourette Disorder, and Trichotillomania Program, also known as the T3 Program, which provides treatments for youth with motor, vocal, and other body-focused repetitive disorders
