The American Psychological Association has accredited Rogers Behavioral Health System’s Center for Research and Training as a training site for psychologists for the next seven years.
The APA took into consideration factors including training goals, objectives and practices; intern, faculty and financial resources; and program policies and procedures.
“Our seven-year accreditation reflects positively on Rogers and indicates the organization’s quality,” said Dr. Jody Pahlavan, clinical director of child and adolescent partial hospital services. “The prestige associated with accreditation often leads to future grant opportunities and an increased ability to attract high-quality staff. In addition, accreditation assists Rogers in fulfilling its mission of service, research, education and training.”
