Postdoctoral Psychology at Santa Clara Psychiatry and CDRP



The Santa Clara Department of Psychiatry is comprised of a main campus at 19000 Homestead Road in Cupertino, that houses Adult Psychiatry, Child Psychiatry, and a Chemical Dependency Recovery Program (CDRP). Additionally, there are three satellite clinics that provide mental health services at convenient locations within the community. The residency program utilizes the main campus at Cupertino for postdoctoral training, where three residents train on the child team and one trains in CDRP.

The Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in Cupertino is housed in an outpatient clinic, which provides diagnostic, therapeutic and consultation services to Kaiser Members. In addition, we also support other departments within the Kaiser Medical Center with consultation and educational services. We also partner closely with the Chemical Dependency Recovery Program (CDRP) on cases where Dual Diagnosis is a question. While initial intake is done on an individual family basis and family therapy is provided, we also provide play therapy and individual therapy as well as an extensive array of group programs for kids and parents.

In addition, the clinic provides an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) to those children and teens who have been recently hospitalized or those who would otherwise require hospitalization. The staff members comprise a wide spectrum of theoretical orientations—analytic, behavior modification, family systems and narrative to name a few. The Department of Child Psychiatry‘s professional staff includes approximately 3 full-time psychiatrists, 2 nurses, 7 psychologists, 7 social workers and 3 MFTs.

The Chemical Dependency Recovery Program provides outpatient substance abuse services for adults, adolescents, and their families. Members apply for services directly, or may be referred by providers. Services for adults range from detoxification, through Day Treatment, Intensive Outpatient programs and individual therapy. Adolescent, codependency and psycho-educational services are provided. Services are provided to clients along the spectrum of stages of change, including harm reduction and relapse treatment. Family members are offered education and are involved in therapy, as appropriate.

Clinical opportunities for residents may include short term individual therapy, family therapy, couples therapy, crisis intervention, chemical dependency evaluation, adult and adolescent group therapy, educational groups, and psychological assessment. The service stresses a commitment to providing the highest possible quality substance abuse treatment. Residents are exposed to patients representing a wide range of socioeconomic status. The resident may be required to work an occasional weekend
