-- The Center for Children
and Families (CCF) in the Psychology Department at Florida International
announces positions for summer internships for undergraduate students and recent graduates in the Summer Treatment Program
(STP) for children with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Conduct Disorder (CD) or Oppositional-Defiant Disorder (ODD).
The program provides treatment tailored to children's individual behavioral and learning difficulties and serves children ages six through fifteen.
The Program is directed by William E. Pelham, Jr., Ph.D., who is a Professor of Psychology at FIU. In 1993, the Summer Treatment Program
was named as a Model Program for Service Delivery for Child and Family Mental Health by the Section on Clinical Child Psychology
and Division of Child, Youth, and Family Services of the American Psychological Association. Additionally, in 2003 the Program received the
Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (C.H.A.D.D.) Innovative Program of the Year Award. Moreover,
the Program has been adopted as a core psychosocial component of the Multisite Treatment Study for ADHD that is funded by NIMH,
and the Early Risers Prevention Program funded by SAMHSA. It was also recently added to the National Registry of Evidenced-based
Practices and Programs.
