Anxiety & Mood Disorders & Gender & Sexuality Service Fellowship
NYU Grossman School of Medicine offers the 12-month fellowship in anxiety and mood disorders and gender and sexuality service at the Anita Saltz Institute for Anxiety and Mood Disorders, part of the Child Study Center at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.
It is intended for psychologists who have successfully completed an American Psychological Association–approved internship and wish to refine their skills in transgender health and mental health, as well as provide empirically supported cognitive behavioral treatments for children with anxiety and mood disorders. The fellowship co-coordinators are Aleta G. Angelosante, PhD, and Samantha Busa, PsyD.
As a postdoctoral fellow in our Anxiety and Mood Disorder Service, you perform diagnostic assessments, provide empirically supported treatments for youth with anxiety and mood disorders, and co-lead parent workshops and psychosocial treatment groups for social anxiety. As time allows, you may also choose to participate in the other anxiety and mood disorder focus areas, such as dialectical behavioral therapy and intensive treatment interventions.
In your role with the Gender and Sexuality Service, you will have the opportunity to take part in a gender affirming clinical services including assessment for medical interventions, psychotherapy, and co-leading groups with expert supervision. You will also be a part of the larger Transgender Youth Health Program, a multidisciplinary team of adolescent medicine physicians, psychologists, social workers, and nurses, which provides gender affirming medical care to transgender and gender expansive youth.
As transgender and gender expansive youth also often display mental health vulnerabilities, you also gain significant experience treating individuals with anxiety disorders, mood disorders, ADHD and other externalizing disorders, autistic spectrum disorders, learning disorders, and other conditions. Fellows also have the opportunity to supervise an extern and participate in a new supervisor’s group.
We are actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and are taking steps to protect the safety of our providers and patients. Currently, the experiences of this postdoctoral fellowship are available in a hybrid model with a mix of in-person and remote days.
