Since 1877, Regis University, a Colorado college, has been meeting the needs of students through innovative classroom-based and online programs centered in academic excellence. Regis University's commitment to the individual student is fostered through the heritage of our values-centered Jesuit education. Today more than 10,000 students call Regis University home. This Colorado-based college is comprised of three Schools - Regis College, the Rueckert-Hartman School for Health Professions, and the School for Professional Studies - and offers classes in a campus-based setting as well as online programs in a range of studies. The Office of Counseling and Personal Development functions as a comprehensive mental health agency for the Regis University student community. Students present to the OCPD with issues ranging from developmental stress to more severe psychopathology. OCPD provides services to students of the traditional undergraduate school, Regis College, as well as students attending the accelerated nursing, doctoral physical therapy, doctoral pharmacy, and masters in biomedical sciences programs. These schools and programs are comprised of approximately 2,000 students in total. The breakdown of these students (based on 2012-2013 enrollment) is approximately as follows: African American 4%; American/Alaska Native <1%; Asian 7%; Euro-American 73%; Hispanic/Latino 14%; Multi-racial 2%; International Students .8%; Hawaiian/Pacific Islander <1%;; Catholic 43%; Non-Catholic 57%;; Female 65%; Male 35%;; Disability 3%. APA-Aproved Pre-Doctoral Internship OCPD offers one full-time internship position through the University of Denver Internship Consortium. The OCPD consists of seven senior staff, a consulting psychiatrist, one psychology intern, two graduate student trainees, and one support staff. Training objectives are for interns to become more self-aware and adept in their interactions with clients, supervisees, colleagues and organizational systems; to develop greater appreciation of and respect for human rights, diversity and the public interest; and to gain a deeper understanding of the professional roles and social responsibilities that accompany the privileges of a career in clinical psychology. Interns at this site will carry caseloads comprised of a few brief and multiple longer-term psychotherapy cases. OCPD does not have session limits and thus working with clients from a long-term treatment model is possible. Interns will also provide brief, solution-focused counseling for mandated alcohol/drug offenders. Other training opportunities and responsibilities will include conducting initial intake assessments; supervising and training of a graduate level trainee; conducting psycho-educational outreach and training to various groups on campus; participating in weekly supervision of all intern responsibilities; conducting four substance use or personality assessments; case management; and participation in training seminars, team supervisions and conferences. Sport Psychology is also an opportunity at this site as a specialized rotation with Jeni Shannon, AASP Certified Sport Psychology Consultant. While it is possible to do some couples counseling at Regis, it may only consist of one or two couples throughout the year. It should be noted that assessment is primarily conducted with mandated substance abuse clients, which involves the SASSI and the SOCRATES. There may the opportunity for one or two personality assessments during the year. OCPD does not conduct LD/ADHD testing.
