CCPA Summer Series 2019: The Child Mind Institute

By Nicole Litvitskiy The Child Mind Institute I have spent my summer as a Clinical Summer Intern at the Child Mind Institute in New York City. The Child Mind Institute is a nonprofit organization that provides psychological assessment and treatment for children, adolescents, and young adults. As an intern, I had the opportunity to be involved in various aspects of the organization. As a group of seven interns, we are exposed to several treatments for a variety of psychological disorders, including receiving training on specific treatment techniques. Throughout our 11 weeks here, we all have the opportunity to observe neuropsychological testing, in which children are assessed on their IQ and several additional measures in a holistic process.  Additionally, Child Mind uses Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) to treat children who present disruptive and oppositional behavior. I had the opportunity to set up these sessions, provide childcare according to PCIT guidelines, and observe these sessions. One of the biggest portions of the clinical summer internship at Child Mind is our involvement in the treatment of Selective Mutism, both in the office and off-site for a program called Brave Buddies. Selective Mutism is an anxiety disorder in which children are typically talkative at home, but experience a significant amount of anxiety outside the home that leads to an inability to speak. This makes it difficult for children with Selective Mutism to succeed in school and other social situations. The Child Mind Institute uses a behavioral approach based on PCIT to treat Selective Mutism. As part of my internship I received training on how this treatment is provided. Throughout the summer, we conducted weekly...

CCPA Summer Series 2019: DLL

CCPA Summer Series 2019: DLL

By Charlie Russ Hello! My name is Charlie Russ and I am a rising senior, political science major, and Men’s lacrosse player. This summer I had the wonderful opportunity to intern at DLL. I was placed into the project management department with Matt Jennings, where I would be helping DLL roll-out their new operations system called MOSAIC. Going into it, I was nervous because I knew I would be working closely with computer developers, something I knew absolutely nothing about! However, these concerns were swiftly quelled by my supportive coworkers who were always eager to help me. Right off the bat, I was tasked with solving a critical problem in their line of communication between developers and business support. I had complete freedom to create my own solution. This was very empowering for me as an intern because not only did my supervisors entrust me with a significant problem, they also let me be creative and independent in my approach. In a nutshell, I built a new system for reporting upcoming functionality in MOSAIC to business support. This report allowed our development team to more efficiently solve production problems for business support as well as inform business support and clients of upcoming functionality being delivered. This enabled DLL to deliver more functionality faster to our customers. During this project, I built upon the communication and writing skills I have been honing at Haverford. Additionally, this project greatly enhanced my Excel skills, and I also learned how to use SalesForce. These hard technical skills are things that will definitely be useful to me in the future, and I’m elated to...

CCPA Summer Series 2019: Valerie Wilson Travel

By Cayley Montoya ’20 Thanks to the Whitehead Internship Program, I am able to intern this summer at a travel agency called Valerie Wilson Travel. I have spent the last thirteen weeks living and working in New York City at the woman-owned, family-run business. Though I am working in the leisure department – focusing on vacations – the company also specializes in corporate travel as well as meetings and events. While I have a passion for travel, and after thirteen weeks in the business, an extensive bucket list, I was very unfamiliar with travel as an industry before applying to Whitehead. Most of my work comes from the travel advisors in my department on a need basis, therefore it is usually given to me in the moment and to be completed soon, rather than long term projects. Unlike in the corporate department, leisure travel does not require as immediate planning, and there are usually many months that go into developing a trip. The first stage of planning involves research on various destinations if the client is not set on a specific place, or on one destination to make sure it is a good time of year to visit. Once the location is set, I compare hotels, and then the advisor begins to look into flights and tours. Because our agency focuses on luxury travel, our clients usually ask for customized and privatized tours. After all the details are decided, I build the itinerary on a platform called AXUS, which once the itinerary is uploaded, the clients can access on their phone on the VWTraveler app. The most crucial advice...
