All applicants invited for an interview will complete a video based interview via Zoom with the selection comittee. Applicants will also have the opportunity to attend a virtual open house via Zoom. Individual interviews will be completed January 3-14, 2022. The virtual open house will likely take place on January 21, 2022. Applicants will be notified of interview status via email by December 20, 2021. There are approximately four people from CAPS in each interview, including one current intern. Applicants who would like to connect with interns with additional questions are welcome to contact the training director for contact information for the intern cohort. They are also welcome to contact the training director if they have questions specific to any CAPS staff member.
CAPS is the primary mental health resource for the CU Boulder campus. We provide a full range of mental health services to students at the University of Colorado Boulder. Our multidisciplinary treatment team consists of psychologists, social workers, licensed professional counselors, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and trainees in psychology, social work, and nursing. One of the central training experiences of the internship is the opportunity to provide therapy in an integrated care setting, including co-treatment with psychiatry staff for students on medication and treatment that can include a multi-disciplinary focus. We see students for short-term therapy and use our program in group psychotherapy for longer term work. We provide triage and crisis intervention services on a daily basis. The clients we serve present with a broad spectrum of concerns, from adjustment issues to more serious mental health concerns. To be competitive applicants must address "quality of fit" between the applicant and our site in their cover letter. If applicants do not meet the 500 hour requirement, we ask that applicants address how COVID-19 impacted their hours accrual and what they have done to supplement the loss of direct contact hours. Application criteria are more fully spelled out in our program brochure. Our program brochure can be located under the "Training Opportunities" tab on our website: https://www.colorado.edu/counseling/training-opportunities/apa-accredited-doctoral-internship
