Training and Supervision
Reaching HOPE is committed to the growth of trauma-informed care. We work with students, professionals, and organizations to provide valuable trainings and consultations on trauma-informed care.
Externship for Doctoral Students
Reaching HOPE offers a 1+year supervised doctoral practicum to students who are in training to become psychologists and are interested in receiving trauma-specific training. Practicum students receive hands-on learning with close and supportive supervision from Reaching HOPE Staff Psychologists. Practicum students get the opportunity 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. For more information, email JoinOurTeam@ReachingHOPE.org.
Pre-doctoral Psychology Internship
Reaching HOPE is a minor rotation site within the APA-accredited Pre-doctoral Internship at University of Colorado School of Medicine, Department of Family Medicine. Interns have the opportunity to select a minor rotation site to acquire additional training in an area of interest to them for 6 months. The Reaching HOPE minor rotation offers experience conducting therapy with children, teens, parents, and families who have survived complex trauma and training in 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 team approach—the whole family system is seen by the whole treatment team (everyone with their own individual therapist). Interns will provide individual, family, and group therapy to clients (ages 2-75+).
