Summer Camp Counselor, Pennsylvania State University (Clinical Psychology-ADHD)

Penn State Health is recruiting undergraduate and graduate students to work as paid interns in the 2019 ADHD Summer Treatment Program (STP) at the Penn State Harrisburg Campus in Middletown, PA. The STP is a treatment program for 7-11 year old children with ADHD that is implemented in a summer day camp setting. The STP has positive effects on the serious behavioral, social, and academic difficulties exhibited by children diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, and/or CD.

Interns will implement recreation-based therapy for children with ADHD. They will receive extensive training and experience implementing research-based interventions.  Students with STP experience are often highly sought-after in graduate training programs in clinical psychology, social work, medicine and education. Past STP counselors have gone in to successful careers in all of these fields.  Interns will be hired for one of two roles: (1) Lead Counselor or (2) Counselor.

Lead Counselors (hiring 4): These interns are typically graduate-level students from clinical psychology, school psychology, education, social work, or related programs experienced working with children.

Lead Counselors will oversee all aspects of treatment and will provide immediate supervision to undergraduate counselors. During staff training, Lead Counselors will also assist program staff members in training undergraduate counselors in the token economy/point system, time out procedures, social skills, and problem solving training procedures and review clinical records of the children with whom they will be working during the STP. Lead Counselors are paid $12 per hour.

Counselors (hiring 16): These interns are typically undergraduate students majoring in psychology, social work, education, or related fields. Counselors work together to implement treatment with small groups of children. Counselors implement behavior modification during recreational activities (e.g., soccer, softball, basketball) and also provide children social skills training, and problem solving training. Counselors also plan activities and design treatment modifications to meet the needs of individual children. Prior behavioral health experience with children not required. Counselors paid $10/ hour.

All aspects of the internships are supervised by licensed psychologists. Interns typically gain 200 hours of experience providing treatment directly to children. Opportunities or participating in behavioral parent training and in weekly didactics are also available (but not required).

Interns complete 2 weeks of training before the start of treatment and receive ongoing supervision. Intern training begins around June 10th, 2019 through June 21st.

In each of the programs, children and counselors are assigned to groups that remain constant for the duration of the program. Each group consists of four or five counselors and 10 to 15 children of similar age. Children participate in a variety of classroom-based and recreational activities. Staff members implement an extensive behavior modification treatment program during all program activities. The behavior modification program includes feedback and associated consequences for positive and negative behaviors, daily and weekly rewards for appropriate behavior, social praise and attention, appropriate commands, and age-appropriate removal from positive reinforcement. Counselors will also be responsible for recording, tracking, and entering daily records of children’s behavior and response to the treatment. Counselors will work under the supervision of experienced faculty and staff members and will receive regular feedback about their performance. A brief description of daily activities for each program follows:

Counselors in the STP-PreK deliver the treatment components within both classroom and recreational contexts. Counselors will assist in the following each day: (1) leading an academic center (i.e., English/Language Arts, Math, Science, Writing); (2) leading a sport (i.e., soccer, kickball, teeball); (3) delivery of treatment components during large group instruction periods; (4) assisting in the delivery of an evidence-based reading intervention; and (5) tracking the daily behavioral progress for assigned cases. The STP-PreK serves children with and at-risk for ADHD and related learning problems and disruptive behavior disorders. Sports experience or teaching experience is not a requirement for the STP-PreK program.

Counselors in the STP-E deliver the treatment components during daily sports-based recreational periods in which children practice and play soccer, teeball/softball, and basketball. Counselors plan and conduct skill drills to address children’s specific skill deficits, provide appropriate coaching, assess children’s knowledge of the game rules and procedures, model appropriate sports skills, and encourage and reinforce appropriate effort, sportsmanship, leadership, and teamwork. All counselors are required to be familiar with the rules and fundamentals of each sport and will be expected to model appropriate skill and enthusiasm. Counselors also assist with daily social skills training sessions, conduct problem solving discussions as necessary, and assist with the implementation of daily report cards and individualized treatment programs. In addition, Counselors organize, prepare and lead weekly Fun Friday activities such as video games, water slides, and field day activities that serve as reinforcers for children who met their behavioral goals for the week. Most of the daily activities take place outdoors and counselors are physically active throughout the day. Counselors in the STP-E spend a substantial amount of time coaching and teaching children sports rules and skills. Therefore, previous experience in teaching, refereeing, or coaching children is preferred. Counselors will be required to transport, setup, and breakdown sports equipment used in games, drills, and recess activities.

Prior to the start of employment, Counselors will be required to read the applicable treatment program manual and to be extensively familiar with behavior modification program and rules and procedures for daily activities, including the rules and fundamentals for the sports played in the program and other daily activities. Counselors will be required to memorize, verbatim, information such the operational definitions for the behavior modification system categories, activity rules, rules for classifying behaviors, and other related information. Counselors will need to spend a significant amount of time preparing prior to the start of employment.

Training will consist of lectures, slide and video presentations, testing, and daily active role-plays during which staff members will act as counselors and children during activities such as games, drills, discussions, and time out. On the last day of employment, Counselors will complete rating scales regarding progress children made in the program and children’s response to treatment. In addition, Counselors will prepare and summarize information to be included in children’s final treatment reports.

The Summer Treatment Program has been conducted at Florida State University from 1980 to 1986; at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic from 1987 to 1996; at the University at Buffalo from 1997 to 2009; and at Florida International University since 2010.
