What is the In-Person Take Team (IPIT)?

The In-Person Intake Team (IPIT) consists of a group of both senior and junior clinical trainees, as well as a registered psychologist, and uses a team-based approach in order to expedite access to psychological services. The team conducts interviews at CPS with incoming therapy clients in order to assess their needs, and determine whether the CPS can provide the most appropriate therapy services. Two members of the team conduct interview, while the other trainees observe behind a one-way mirror. The IPIT consuslts with each other both during and after the intake interview, and provides recommendations regarding either assignment to a clinician at CPS, or other resources that may be more appropriate.
