DescriptionThe Treatment and Research Advancements National Association for Personality Disorder (TARA NAPD) is seeking student interns for fall/spring 2016-17 for our Manhattan offices. TARA, founded in 1995, funded by donations and memberships, is a nonprofit organization focusing on education and advocacy for Borderline Personality Disorder. Our mission is to raise awareness of personality disorders, reduce stigma against the person with the disorder and their family, and educate family members to become therapeutic allies for their loved ones with BPD. TARA operates a national BPD Helpline which provides information and referrals. We conduct psychoeducation workshops for family members and seminars at national and international conferences demonstrate the TARA Method, an integrated method of psychoeducation based on Dialectic Behavior Therapy and Mentalization, two evidence based treatments for BPD. Interns are supervised by Valerie Porr, MA, president of TARA, and author of the award winning book, Overcoming Borderline Personality Disorder, a Family Guide for Healing and Change, Oxford University Press.
Interning at TARA is an opportunity for an undergraduate or graduate psychology student looking to pursue a career in clinical psychology or social work to gain clinical experience as well as familiarity with latest treatment and research in the field of personality disorder. Although TARA internships are non-paid, committed and responsible volunteers have the opportunity to learn clinical skills and develop familiarity with experts in the field.
Interested interns may contact Ms. Porr at (212) 966-6514 after 12:00 noon.
