This report provides an account of a full time thirteen week internship served with the Psychology Department at the Waterford Hospital in St. John’s, Newfoundland. The internship period was from May 6, 1991 to August 2, 1991. -- Chapter 1 discusses the rationale for the placement, describes the setting and the department to which the intern was attached, and sets out the internship objectives. -- Chapter 2 describes the intern's activities during the internship in detail, reviews the accomplishment of objectives, and makes recommendations for future internships at the site. -- Chapter 3 outlines the background and rationale for the intern's research project conducted during the internship. Literature is presented to support the choice of research design and treatment methodology. -- Chapter 4 details the intern's research project. The intern conducted a series of case studies with depressed patients, in an attempt to show that treatment matched to individual patient's problem areas is effective in alleviating depression.
