Program Description

PSYCHOLOGY PRE-DOCTORAL INTERNSHIP/POST-DOCTORAL INTERNSHIP TRAINING PROGRAM 2021-2022

Brain and Body Integration offers a one-year, full time doctoral level and post-doctoral training program in the areas of individual therapy intervention, assessment, diagnosis, consultation, and supervision.  Training takes place in a large private practice setting and offers training in Clinical Psychology, as well as the opportunity to provide individual therapy, and a diverse array of psychological assessments. The internship program is based on a 40-hour week, for 12 months.  Interns spend an average of 15-24 hours per week of face-to-face time with clients.  This program also includes time-off for holidays, sick days, and vacation.  The program begins the first week of August, and is completed one year later.  The total training comprises approximately 2000 hours of supervised experience.
 
The goals of the Doctoral Internship in Clinical Psychology are: to produce competent psychologists that are trained for practice in the general skill domains of clinical psychology, to train interns to understand psychological research and to apply research to practice, and to integrate the Scientist-Practitioner model with practical knowledge and understanding of professional ethics. 
 
The internship program provides particular emphasis on: diagnosis, assessment, clinical conceptualization, treatment planning, therapeutic intervention, and biofeedback.  In addition, the interns are expected to develop professional and collegial relationships with staff and other interns. They are also expected to develop their own professional identity by functioning effectively as members of multi-disciplinary teams that includes professionals from many different agencies. The objectives are both to become proficient in the provision of psychological services and to enhance the professional qualities necessary to participate effectively in different organizational settings.
 
Brain and Body Integration is a large private mental health clinic located in Denver, Colorado and Colorado Springs, Colorado.  Internships are offered at both the Colorado Springs and Denver locations.  Ryan Cole, Psy.D. is the director of training at Brain and Body Integration.  A team of seven clinical psychologists provide individual supervision, group supervision, and didactic training to interns.  Both training locations are equipped with psychologist testing instruments, computers, and offices for clinical use.  An administrative assistant is available to assist with scheduling and daily management of administrative/office issues. 
 
Each intern is expected to perform three psychological evaluations per week.  Interns will be trained in the following assessments: Psychological, Neuropsychological, Learning Disorder, Adaptive Functioning, and Autism.  Assessments are performed with children, adolescents, and adults. Biofeedback is typically performed as an adjunctive technique within individual therapy.  Interns may carry up to 5 therapy clients at a time on their caseload.  Didactic seminars occur twice a week. Didactics are created to be specific to the assessment rotation that is current, as well as to focus on intervention related skills and competencies.  Group supervision occurs once per week for one hour.  Individual supervision is offered three times per week, for a total of two hours per week.
 
Interns in the 2021-2022 cohort will receive a competitive stipend.  Interns are provided with 5 paid vacation days to be used during the internship year, and 5 paid days of sick leave.
