Internships 

The Denver ELEMENT accepts masters level counseling and social work interns, along with bachelor’s level human services interns. Interns will receive weekly individual and group supervision from a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed Addictions Counselor, or a Licensed Social Worker. While interning at the Denver ELEMENT interns will, based on education, provided evaluations / assessments, do group and individual counseling, and case management. Interns will learn DAP style clinical documentation, DSM-5 diagnosis, Medicaid billing requirements, and treatment planning. Interns are immersed in a positive environment, surrounded daily by staff and other interns to make the internship not only educational but interpersonally engaging as well.

We might be a good fit for your internship if:

  • You are interested in providing treatment from a group counseling model.

  • You are interested in working with LGBTQIA+ people, and folks living with HIV.

  • You are interested in working with people who are experiencing homelessness, people are experiencing financial instability, people who are living with chronic medical conditions, and people who are involved in the criminal justice system.

  • You are willing to work in a changing work environment.

  • You are not only interested in learning from the staff, but also connecting and socializing in the workplace with the staff.

  • You integrate social justice in your clinical work.

  • You are willing to accept and integrate feedback.

The Denver ELEMENT accepts applications year round, and will commit to the right intern up to five months in advanced. We utilize interns year round, and expect a minimum of four month commitment for internships, and three month commitment for practicum students. Length of internships are determined by students’ university’s needs, and availability. The Denver ELEMENT has a set amount of interns they can maintain during each semester, so once the spots have been filled we will not accept any more interns.

If you have questions about our internship program, please reach out we would love to talk to you!

If you are interested in interning with The Denver ELEMENT, you may inquire by reaching out to Justin R. Lewis. Please email cover letters and resume to jlewis@mhbhc.org.
