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. 

College Students in Corridor
Externship for Doctoral Students

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. For more information, email us at

Pre-doctoral Psychology Internship 
Minor Rotation

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 select a minor rotation site to acquire additional training in an area of interest for 6 months. The Reaching HOPE minor 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).
