Boulder Emotional Wellness provides training opportunities for students who are enrolled in a Masters program or PhD program in clinical psychology. The training program is designed to help interns increase their clinical competence as psychotherapists in a community setting. Trainees engage in a variety of professional activities typical of a community counseling environment. These activities include:

• Conducting intake assessments.
• Providing individual, couple and/or child psychotherapy. Strong interest in couples therapy is expected.
• Providing psychoeducational workshops to members of the Boulder community.
• Marketing clinic services, including posting fliers, presentating to groups, and other outreach tasks.
• Attending and participating in organization inservice trainings.
• Participation in case presentations and consultations.
• Preparation and participation in clinical supervision with licensed staff members.

Eligibility Requirements
• Enrollment in a masters level program.
• Approval from the program to seek internship.
• Willingness to make a 12-month, 15-hours per week commitment. Interns start in two groups, early summer and late summer.  Please consider your start preference.

Application Procedures
Please submit:
• A letter of intent with a description of your interest in Boulder Emotional Wellness.

• Documentation from your program delineating the requirements of a placement.  Not required for Naropa University students.

• A current CV or resume. Significant time gaps (over 6 months) without work or education should be explained.

Three reference letters, including one from a person who has direct knowledge of your counseling skills, and one from a person that has supervised you in a work environment. Applications that do not include a reference from a supervisor will not be considered.

When we see letters of recommendation that have identical and near-identical sentences, or identical themes in identical order, it is a mark against the candidate. If you are asked to write your own letter, please find someone else for a reference.

• An unofficial transcript.

• A copy of a graded APA academic paper with professor’s comments.  Must have bibliographic references.  No “reflection papers” please.  Only one paper please.
