The Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services Pre-Doctoral Psychology Internship was developed 30 years ago to reflect the integration of professional psychological intervention and the values of Christian faith. Pine Rest is one of a few nationally recognized programs that offer distinctively Christian training while also meeting criteria for accreditation with the American Psychology Association (since 1982).
Pine Rest’s training program is highly sought out by prospective psychology interns across the country, with typical application to acceptance ratios of 20 to 1. Many graduates of the training program have gone on to highly productive careers within the Pine Rest family or other respected institutions throughout the country. The training program has been highly successful in preparing psychologists for a variety of Doctoral roles, and is seen as a successful microcosm of Pine Rest’s philosophy and mission in practice.
Pine Rest values the opportunity to provide an atmosphere of continual learning through training—fostering community partnerships while articulating and enhancing the organizational mission. We realize that good training challenges clinical staff as well as interns, and are determined to continually evaluate what we believe and how we practice in light of scientific discoveries and faith-based integration. We invite you to become a part of the history and relationship of reciprocal learning at Pine Rest.
