Sacramento is a thriving metropolitan area, known for its rich cultural offerings and proximity to world class, year-round recreation. Sacramento is the cultural, educational, business and governmental center of a four – county metropolitan region. Sacramento is center stage for governmental policy for the entire state. A dynamic business sector, an expanding public transportation system (including Light Rail), affordable housing, and growing cultural, educational, and medical facilities serve the needs of nearly two million people. The confluence of two of the state's largest rivers is just a short walk from the steps of City Hall. San Francisco, Lake Tahoe and Yosemite Valley, all offering a wide variety of recreational and cultural activities, are just a few hours away.
Roseville is located in Placer County along the eastern edge of the Sacramento Valley at the base of the Sierra Nevada foothills, and just 16 miles from Sacramento. A city with a diverse economy, including technology, healthcare, agriculture and financial services, it draws in many diverse residents and visitors. Aside from its large retail base, Roseville also offers theater, live music, and many outdoor recreation areas. Throughout the year various events in the historic downtown provide entertainment opportunities.
The patient population consists of Kaiser Health Plan members possessing prepaid psychiatric benefits and covers a broad ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic spectrum. Virtually all psychiatric categories are represented.
The professional staff consists of over 120 mental health practitioners located on five different sites throughout the Sacramento area (Sacramento, Roseville, Davis, Folsom and Ranch Cordova Campuses). Staff members include psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, licensed psychiatric social workers, marriage and family therapists, and psychiatric nurses.
The department of Psychiatry provides services to adults including individual, group treatment, psychological and neuropsychological testing, and psycho-educational programs (such as stress reduction, couples communication and anger management). Intensive Outpatient (“day treatment”), Alcohol and Drug treatment, Eating Disorders, and Dialectical Behavior Programs provide more intensive, focused options for treatment. The members of the staff represent a variety of theoretical orientations.
The Postdoctoral Residency Experience in the North Valley
The Psychiatry Department in the North Valley (the name for the service area that includes all 5 of our campuses – Roseville, Sacramento, Davis, Folsom, and Rancho Cordova) is very large and fast-paced. The clinic offers outpatient treatment to a wide and diverse range of adults and children in the greater Sacramento/Roseville area. Treatment is tailored to the needs of the individual member and often includes a combination of individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, psychoeducational classes, possibly medication management. Postdoctoral residents evaluate, diagnose, and develop treatment plans as part of a treatment team. In addition, residents can assist with crisis evaluations, triage patients to a higher level of care, provide individual therapy, and co-lead group therapy. In practice, the resident is expected to handle evaluations and treatment for a wide range of outpatient problems, with guidance and supervision from a primary supervisor and secondary supervisors. The resident training at Roseville can expect to work with patients who present with PTSD and BPD as well as other health psychology related issues.
Residents are also members of feedback informed care teams that meet weekly for case consultation and scholarly article review. There is a strong emphasis on training and mentorship in the department with opportunities for residents to train in supervision with interns and practicum students.
Residents are expected to complete a minimum of four psychological assessment batteries during the training year, as well as one program evaluation/research project. The postdoctoral program is intended to lay the foundation for clinical competence sufficient for independent functioning in the practice of clinical psychology and for a well-founded professional identity. The resident gains experience working as part of a multi-disciplinary team and by the end of the training year is expected to function as a full staff clinician.
