2017-18 SAPIC Intern Handbook

The 2017-18 internship year will mark the 21st year of existence and the 20th year of A.P.A. accreditation for the Southern Arizona Psychology Internship Center (SAPIC). SAPIC was created to provide interns who desire a learning experience in a cutting-edge, managed health care community behavioral health care environment with high quality training. SAPIC is currently based within La Frontera Center, Inc., (www.lafronteraarizona.org) a community behavioral health organization (with integrated care at four health homes) serving about 14,000 underserved and culturally diverse clients, and the University of Arizona (UA) Strategic Alternative Learning Techniques (SALT) Center (http://www.salt.arizona.edu/index.php ), providing an array of services to over 500 UA students with learning disabilities.

SAPIC offers interns the opportunity to sharpen their psychotherapeutic and assessment skills with a culturally, socioeconomically, and clinically diverse clientele of various ages, in a variety of community settings, and with professionals from many disciplines. SAPIC’s flexibility provides interns with opportunities to meet their training needs, while preparing for competition in today’s complex and changing behavioral health market. SAPIC and our host organizations value and celebrate diversity; we invite all applicants who share in these values and who seek the opportunity to work with “all who walk in our doors.”
