Externships

Reaching HOPE offers a 1+year supervised doctoral practicum to students training to become psychologists and are interested in receiving trauma-specific training. Practicum students learn with close and supportive supervision from Reaching HOPE Staff psychologists, and work side-by-side with trauma specialists by co-leading family therapy sessions. Practicum students also conduct individual therapy with children, teens, and adults who are impacted by trauma.

Our board is made up of community members, professionals, parents, young people, individuals living with mental illness, and trauma survivors.

Internships
 

Reaching HOPE is a minor/major rotation site within the APA-accredited Pre-doctoral Internship at University of Colorado School of Medicine, Department of Family Medicine.  Interns select a minor/major rotation site to acquire additional training in an area of interest for 6 months to one year. The Reaching HOPE rotation offers experience conducting therapy with children, teens, parents, and families who have survived complex trauma. We use a phase-based model for treating complex trauma in family systems. Interns will join a dynamic team of psychologists who tackle intergenerational trauma with a unique approach—the whole family system (ages 2-75+) is seen by the whole treatment team (everyone with their own individual therapist).
