Boulder County Jail – Airport Rd., Boulder, CO
Our programming in the jail is unique in that we incorporate both interns and volunteers to create a supportive environment for men and women who are ready to shift their lives. The ultimate goal for this program is lowered recidivism rates for incarcerated community members.
This 4-phase program involves case management, counseling, and group support so clients can work through internal processes and prepare themselves on a foundational level to be successful when re-entering the community. We offer a combination of evidence based practices while incorporating mindfulness and trauma-informed techniques into our Program.
As an intern, you would have the opportunity to do both individual and group work with our male and female adult clients. Individually your role would be as a support for our clientele who may be facing past trauma and attachment issues for the first time. Additionally, you would be given training in CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) based methods that have been proven effective in reducing anti-social behaviors among our population.
