CEC recognizes how vital high-quality, intentional supervision is not only for new professionals entering into the mental health field, but also for the community at large. Our internship program seeks to provide holistic supervision necessary for training quality clinicians that improve the standards of care throughout our community. Our program is based on the Noeticus Training Triangle™ covering clinical skills, administrative effectiveness, professional development, and well-being of the therapist. Students are expected to maintain a clinical caseload and will receive a 10-12 hour orientation, access to additional self-paced training, weekly individual supervision, and regular group consultation. We currently host interviews in late Spring for our Fall start date.
All of our supervisors are experienced, licensed clinicians who have undergone the 45 hours of training needed for the national Approved Clinical Supervisor Training credential, which far exceeds the state standards for supervision training.
Upon graduation, interns are eligible for hire. CEC offers the supervision needed for licensure hours (typically 2-3 years of full time work). If a newly licensed therapist stays on with the agency, they can take advantage of the Colorado Health Service Corp and Public Service Loan Forgiveness programs for debt relief related to obtaining an advanced degree.
