DIVISION OF STUDENT AFFAIRS: COUNSELING SERVICES
$33,949 plus a benefits package
Colorado State University invites nominations and applications for a one year, full-time, 12-month position as a Postdoctoral Psychology Fellow with the DAY Programs in the CSU Health Network. The Postdoctoral Fellowship position requires both graduation from an APA-accredited doctoral program in Counseling or Clinical Psychology and completion of an APA-accredited doctoral internship. The program is designed to meet or exceed all requirements for licensure in the state of Colorado and is modeled to be in compliance with APPIC guidelines for postdoctoral training sites. The position begins August 1, 2014 and concludes July 31, 2015. Fellows are currently paid $33,949 plus a benefits package.
The Drugs and Alcohol (DAY Program) Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship at the CSU Health Network is designed to prepare individuals for a staff psychologist position in a university counseling service, with particular emphasis on psychologists wishing to specialize in issues related to alcohol and other drug use. The primary focus of this fellowship track is on obtaining specialized training working with both mandated and voluntary students as part of a multidisciplinary treatment team. The Fellow’s clinical hours will be divided between facilitation of psycho-educational workshops, national best practice programs such as BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students), individual therapy with a focus on Motivational Interviewing, harm reduction groups, and participation in the Back on TRAC (Treatment, Responsibility, and Accountability on Campus) multi-disciplinary treatment team. Back on TRAC is the first treatment model of its kind, adapting components of the “Drug Court Model” for college students who are at risk of being separated from the university due to substance use. The Fellow will have the unique opportunity to participate in all aspects of this multidisciplinary program, which uses a combination of sanctions and incentives to encourage positive change, while providing individualized treatment, psycho-education, and compliance monitoring. Approximately 75-85% of students in the DAY Program are typically mandated through the university conduct system; however, the Fellow will also work with a growing voluntary population of students whose goals are abstinence or decreased use. Additionally, the Fellow may participate in crisis intervention and university-based outreach and prevention services including advocacy and social justice interventions. The Postdoctoral Fellow is involved in advanced clinical training experiences through both supervision and participation in didactic seminars. Seminar participation is negotiated with each Fellow individually, based on training needs.
