Department: Horizon Internship Team
Candidates will be notified by email whether or not they are selected to interview. The interviews are conducted in both individual and group formats and will take place in January 2022 in an entirely virtual format this year. Candidates will do two individual interviews with both psychologists and current interns and then a group exercise with the other candidates. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions of our current intern class. The entire interview process is usually completed in a half-day. *We may also offer a separate Open House on a voluntary basis for those who wish to visit our site in person; more details will be offered by Fall 2021.
Diversus Health is a community mental health center serving three counties in Colorado: Park, El Paso, and Teller. Our organization serves children, adolescents, and adults with mental health issues that span the spectrum of disorder from adjustment problems to severe and persistent mental illness. Our treatment philosophy is strengths-based and recovery-focused and the primary theoretical orientations of staff at AspenPointe are CBT, DBT, SFT, and integrative. Diversus Health offers a full spectrum of services from traditional in-clinic to non-traditional, client-driven community and home based treatment. The primary rotation for the internship is in Adult Services, where interns spend 3 days per week. The interns spend the other 2 days each week on minor rotations. The minor rotations include: psychological assessment with children/adolescents, psychological assessment with adults, treatment on an inpatient psychiatric unit, and outpatient substance use treatment.
*Please note that the internship experience is specifically focused on in-clinic services, rather than home-based or community treatment. Our internship is also focused on providing clinical services to adults, with the exception of the Child Assessment rotation which focuses on psychological assessment with children and adolescents.
