Training & Education

Mental health providers are continuously striving to meet the demands of the ever-changing landscape of client and community need through continued training and professional development. As a university dedicated to the public good, DU offers a variety of continuing education opportunities to meet the professional development needs of our community members. We specialize in bringing content that is applicable across many helping fields, including social work, psychology, and counseling.

We are dedicated to training the next generation of culturally competent and scientifically sound professionals by offering innovative learning opportunities to students enrolled in DU’s graduate programs. To this end, the Collaborative is working to design an interprofessional training course for DU graduate students studying mental health. Students will be trained by a team of instructors who hold various degrees (Masters in Social Work, Ph.D. in Psychology, Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology, etc.) to learn how to effectively work on interdisciplinary teams and to develop an appreciation for the distinct ways in which various helping fields view mental wellness.

In line with DU’s mission to be a private university dedicated to the public good, our graduate trainees also  provide consultative and clinical services to a wide variety of community organizations. Our students’ learning is enhanced through applied experiences in “real world’ settings, and the community benefits from the work of dedicated trainees and supervisors.
