The Manhattan Center for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy will take on a new postdoctoral fellow every 1-2 years, or as circumstances allow. Post-doctoral fellows are often part-time, and see a caseload of adults, teens, and/or children, depending on supervisor availability. The clinical emphasis is on the skillful application of evidence-based and, when possible, manual-based treatments. Fellows receive both individual and group supervision, and participate in weekly didactics seminars, as described below.
Our weekly didactic seminars include four components that provide comprehensive clinical training in CBT: review of current research and literature, supervised CBT skills practice, case conferences, and clinical considerations for the patient population at MCCBT. The didactics seminar has been described by trainees as being a particularly valuable part of their experience at MCCBT; it is one way in which we emphasize the importance of research-informed clinical work. Didactics are led by Jennifer Chen, Psy.D., an expert in the treatment of anxiety and depression using CBT and mindfulness-based techniques. Dr. Chen also has extensive training in dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). She is an adjunct professor at Brooklyn College in their Mental Health Counseling graduate program.
