Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for a one-year, full-time Post-Doctoral Psychology Fellow! The start date will be August 1, 2022. We have four positions available, each focusing on clinical services, with different areas of concentration. Applicants may apply for more than one position. In your cover letter, please identify the positions for which you would like to be considered and how your qualifications align with each position.

These positions are open to candidates who have completed all of their doctoral graduate work in Clinical or Counseling Psychology and who need supervised psychotherapy experience to acquire licensure. Administrative supervision is provided by the Postdoctoral Fellowship Coordinator. Clinical supervision is provided by an assigned licensed psychologist. This position does not have formal supervisory duties.

All of the post-doctoral psychology fellows will assist with providing direct clinical services. This includes direct psychotherapy services, performing individual and group psychotherapy and initial therapy assessment, case management, and crisis intervention.

Our first position focuses on providing crisis care and triage. We have two position openings for the crisis care track. In this role, the candidate will provide four hours of non-urgent brief screening/triage and four hours of same-day crisis/triage sessions each week, in addition to post-hospital case management sessions, Intensive DBT group co-facilitation, and maintaining a general caseload. This position will work closely with the Crisis/Triage Team Manager in learning about clinical systems and the development of clinical programs.

Our second position focuses on working with diverse populations. This Diversity, Equity and Inclusion track position provides direct clinical services to diverse student populations. In addition to therapeutic services, this position will provide opportunities to develop unique outreach programming to reach underserved groups on the CU Boulder campus. This position is for a candidate who possesses strong theoretical understanding of multicultural issues in mental health and has experience working with diverse student populations (e.g. race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, etc.).

Our third position focuses on the CAPS Counselor-in-Residence (CIR) program. This position provides direct clinical services and campus community outreach to the general student population. The CIR Program places therapists directly into residence halls to address the mental health concerns of residents and to support Residence Life staff. This CIR track position will provide the opportunity to develop responsive, preventative mental health programming based on community needs, provide psycho-education to Residence Life staff on mental health topics, and foster relationships with staff and residents.
