Psychology Interns Make an Impact

Psychology Interns Make an Impact

The Kelberman Center is proud to showcase its most recent psychology interns, Avery Albert and Connor MacKenzie, both Syracuse University students, and Emily Mullinax, Utica College student, who have been valuable assets to The Kelberman Center Clinic Program over the past months. As a part of their internships, the students have assisted staff in administering a variety of assessments, learning how to administer various cognitive and adaptive measures to clients across the lifespan. They have also assisted in data collection and observed evaluations, therapy and family navigation sessions as well as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment. Finally, they created a guide for family resources all throughout New York State in conjunction with the Family Navigation program.

Avery Albert is a 6th year doctoral candidate in the Clinical Psychology program at Syracuse University. “I was excited by the opportunity the Kelberman Center provides to receive specialized training in the assessment of autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities.”

Connor MacKenzie is a 2nd year doctoral candidate in the School Psychology program at Syracuse University. “Having the opportunity to work here has been nothing short of amazing. It is also a fantastic opportunity to observe treatment sessions and work with clients all across the lifespan, which is unlike any of my previous experiences.”

Emily Mullinax is a 4th year undergraduate student in the Psychology program at Utica College. “I am here at The Kelberman Center as a part of Utica College’s Psychology Practicum program. I have thoroughly enjoyed my internship here and now that my internship has just been completed, I have had the wonderful opportunity to stay on staff here in the Utica location in the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program.”
