The Yale Child Study Center is pleased to offer a two-year full-time Advanced Clinical Social Work Fellowship from July 1st through June 30th of the respective years. The goal of this training program is to build the capacity and skill set of Clinical Social Workers to maintain the intellectual curiosity, concern for clients, and attention to detail necessary to provide excellent clinical interventions with children, youth, and families and become leaders in the field of Clinical Social Work. Grounded in the Yale Child Study Center’s commitment to work towards creating an anti-oppressive environment, we seek to foster the knowledge, awareness and skills needed for fellows to engage in social-justice oriented clinical practice.
Social Work Fellows will participate in a variety of trainings, which include didactics, intensive supervision, and direct practice, with engagement in an elective project and/or area of specialization in the second year of the training program. The second-year elective is tailored to each individual Social Work Fellow’s interests and career goals, which may be specific to activities at the Yale Child Study Center or may involve collaboration with the larger community. Direct practice occurs in either the Intensive Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services In-Home Program (IICAPS) or the Outpatient Psychiatric Clinic for Children (OPC). Social Work Fellows are provided a stipend of $36,960 the first year of training and $37,128 the second year. Comprehensive health care through the Yale Health Plan is available at a nominal fee.
We are committed to recruiting applicants from diverse backgrounds who are representative of the diverse families we serve. Eligible applicants must have satisfactorily completed accredited Master’s level training in Social Work by the start of the training year (July 1st) for which applying. Selected candidates will be interviewed virtually. Preference is given to applicants with previous direct clinical experience.
