My students also obtain clinical experience at practicum sites off campus, such as Capitol Area Recovery Program, an inpatient substance abuse treatment facility in Baton Rouge, LA, Capitol Area Center for Addictive Disorders, an outpatient facility, and Pennington Biomedical Research Center
as part of ongoing clinical trials for smoking cessation, weight control with adults, and prevention studies in which we address these same variables in children. Students are also required to take at least one year of clinical practicum (typically in the 3rd year of the training program) under the supervision of another clinical faculty member. Most of my students complete this “off-year” within the Adult Clinical tract. The majority of my students complete their off-year with Dr. Gouvier in neuropsychology. Many also choose to work with Dr. Cohen (Schizophrenia—many with dual diagnosis issues; Axis II disorders) or Dr. Buckner (anxiety and marijuana/alcohol comorbidity).
