The Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs is an APA accredited program that is built on the Boulder Scientist/Practitioner Model. The program has been accredited since 2007 and has full accreditation through 2019. A curricular focus in Trauma Psychology was approved in 2014 (http://www.uccs.edu/psych/graduate/phd-program/phd-program---trauma.html). Applications are due by January 1, 2015, and the first class in the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program with curricular emphasis in Trauma Psychology will matriculate in Fall, 2015. This emphasis is designed to train students who have a particular interest in conducting research and working clinically with traumatized individuals.
The Trauma, Health & Hazards Center is pleased to support this program with financial, research and other infrastructure support for students and faculty. The Veterans Health and Trauma Clinic (http://www.uccs.edu/thhc/veteran-health-trauma-clinic.html), the mental health clinic under the auspices of the THHC, will serve as the primary clinical training site for students in their second and third years of the Ph.D. program.
