Descriptor The NICPP adheres to a scientist - practitioner approach to psychological practice within an ecological-developmental framework. Although the exact goals of each of the agencies may differ to some extent, all are committed to a training philosophy that emphasizes ethical problem solving; evidence-based assessment and intervention practices; access to supervision that facilitates reflective, scientifically-based practice and to other resources supportive of this goal; access to diverse clients; research activities; and to a training plan that combines experiential learning with other modes of education. Specific training objectives include assisting interns to: (a) apply ethical decision making to complex clinical and research activities; (b) deepen their understanding of the role of psychology as a science and a practice in many professional settings; (c) refine their commitment to life-long scholarship and contributions to the science and practice of psychology; and (d) develop competencies to evaluate the efficacy of work with diverse clients and systems.
