Children's Psychiatric Center (CPC) Consult & Group

½ day per week for 6 months

This rotation gives fellows the opportunity to work with adolescents with substance abuse issues. Fellows co-facilitate a weekly, one hour, motivational-interviewing-based substance abuse group for residential patients and acute inpatient individuals with substance abuse and dependence diagnoses at the Children's Psychiatric Center (CPC). In addition, fellows see patients one-on-one for individual therapy. These patients are either in residential or acute inpatient treatment at the Center. Some are adjudicated. For individual therapy, fellows are supervised by a child and adolescent psychiatrist. Addiction Psychiatry or Child and Adolescent Psychiatry faculty supervise fellows in group therapy experiences.
