Truman Group is a vibrant, rapidly growing practice that provides high quality remote psychotherapy and mental health consultation to expatriates living around the world. Since its inception more than 10 years ago, Truman Group has worked with individuals, couples, families and children in regions of the world that have limited access to local English-speaking mental health resources. Our patient population is diverse, educated and discerning.
Culture of Clinical Excellence, Professional Collaboration and Support
Our clinicians provide outstanding clinical care, and there is an extraordinarily high level of professional pride and commitment to colleagues in the practice. We have established a culture of clinical excellence in the context of professional collaboration and support. All clinicians, independent of their level of experience, are committed to learning, expanding our expertise, and sharing our knowledge with colleagues. This culture permeates our approach to clinical training. Trainee supervision is informed by a range of therapeutic modalities, including but not limited to psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, somatic therapies and mindfulness practices. Additionally, there is opportunity to gain experience in remote psychological testing for children and adults.
A Multilayered Training Environment
Truman Group is an ideal working environment for postdoctoral fellows who are looking to deepen their clinical experience, work with an extraordinarily heterogeneous expatriate clinical population, and develop in a rich, multilayered training environment. We have provided remote care for more than a decade, and fellows will learn from colleagues with many years of telemedicine experience.

Truman Group Fellowship Overview
This section provides an overview of what you can expect in terms of activities and learning during your fellowship.
- Part-Time Position: Fellows in a part-time position are expected to have 10-12 sessions per week
- Full-Time Position (with rotation): Fellows in a full-time position, along with a rotation, are expected to have 16-18 sessions per week
- Full-Time Position (without rotation): Fellows in a full-time position, without any additional rotation, are expected to have 22-24 sessions per week.
Fellows have the chance to engage in different rotations, expanding their experience beyond clinical work:
- Testing Rotation: Involves a selection process with our testing team
- Intake Rotation: Based on individual skills and interests
Each rotation requires a commitment of 10 hours per week, considering a full-time 40-hour schedule. Part-time fellows will focus solely on clinical work and cannot take on rotations.
Fellows receive weekly individual supervision. At mid-year, a new supervisor is assigned. This approach helps fellows diversify their skills, align with personal interests, and enhance their clinical abilities.
Fellows participate in a weekly consult group, resembling the format for all Truman Group clinicians. These groups, led by a seasoned clinician, consist of 4-5 fellows for interactive discussions.
Beyond clinical and supervisory commitments, we emphasize continuous growth. The Truman Group provides a robust didactic schedule:
- Frequency: 1 hour per week.
- Content: Experts from Truman Group cover topics like theoretical frameworks, specific populations, and other relevant areas.
