Dear CSPP alumni,
As a fellow alumnus of CSPP and also as a member on the Board of Trustees at Alliant International University, I am fully embedded in our collective commitment to provide mental health services for the underserved, and I need your help. Interface Psychological Services partners with non-profit organizations to provide mental health services to the underserved populations in the LA area. With the experience and expertise of our supervisors, we provide advanced training to students and interns from a variety of universities including CSPP at Alliant. Alongside the growing need for these services, IPS is rapidly expanding and seeking clinical supervisors who will help us develop our mission into a movement. I am reaching out to you as CSPP alum before other psychologists in Southern California because I believe that psychologists trained and educated at CSPP are extremely equipped to serve the population we are targeting.
IPS has designed a unique model of developing collaborative partnerships with non-profit service providers in Orange County and Los Angeles. Using our interns as an instrument for social change, we provide mental health services through these collaborative partnerships. Counties and private providers are recognizing that mental health services have been the missing link to help people break the cycle of domestic violence, child abuse, substance use, homelessness and other mental and emotional problems. With the recent decline in the economy, we are seeing unemployment and homelessness hit new all-time highs. Now more than ever, it is time to stop this cycle.
IPS is building public and private partnerships that have never been built before. We are establishing a core of stable therapists that can mentor and clinically supervise our trainees and interns who are providing mental health services to those with the greatest need. Supervising and training this group is an opportunity to give back to the community while simultaneously laying the foundation for the next generation of socially minded therapists. With major funding pending, we know there is the potential to expand our services exponentially, and compensation will be available. If you have built a stable core of clients and would consider becoming part of a unique group practice addressing the needs of the underserved, please call or email me with your interest and experience.
Thank you for your consideration,
Steven C. Schoger, Psy.D.
