  • New Grant Seeks to Increase Rural Teacher Retention

    Categories are  Grants  tagged  Graduate Students /  Medicine /  Educational-fund /  Teaching

    The University of Denver (DU) Morgridge College of Education (MCE) Center for Rural School Health & Education (CRSHE) will be expanding its work in rural communities with the addition of a new grant-funded initiative through the Colorado Department of Education’s (CDE) Plan into Action Grants. CRSHE’s goal with this initiative is to create a robust rural school mental health workforce in order to meet the mental health needs of rural students and provide classroom teachers with the support they need by increasing the number of mental health professionals placed in rural schools. MCE will work with state and community partners in southeast Colorado to build and sustain a rural school mental health workforce that can alleviate some of the pressures classroom teachers face in trying to meet those students’ emotional needs. The University anticipates that teacher retention rates will increase as a result of teachers feeling more supported in the classroom.

    CRSHE director, Dr. Elaine Belansky, has been working in rural schools in Colorado for 19 years. While new to DU, Belansky is not new to challenges faced by rural communities.

    The $123,950 grant will allow Belansky and her team to partner with the Colorado Rural Education Collaborative and two Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) to create strategies aimed at increasing the school mental health workforce across underserved areas of the state. The grant consists of three components:

  • Conduct an immersion in Southeast Colorado for school mental health graduate students
  • Develop a statewide Professional Learning Community for school mental health professionals via ECHO DU
  • Create a hiring forecast that includes cost-effective, innovative strategies to meet rural school mental health workforce demands
  • The long-term goals and impact of the grant are to see an increase in the rural school mental health workforce, increased teacher retention rates, and increased mental health of rural students. The 12 month grant period begins fall 2018.

    Post-Master’s AOD, Behavioral Health, and General Counseling Fellowship

    Categories are  Fellowship  tagged  Medicine /  Award /  Criteria Based /  Postgraduate Scholarship

    Colorado State University invites applications for a two-year, full-time, 24-month position as Post-Master’s Fellow with the CSU Health Network. Each year of the fellowship will offer a different specialized training focus, in order to provide Fellows with the flexibility to work in a variety of settings. The Post-Master’s Fellowship requires graduation from an accredited master’s program in Counseling or Social Work and completion of an internship or field placement at a university counseling service or equivalent clinical experience. The program is designed to meet partial requirements for licensure in the state of Colorado.

    Fellowship begins August 1, 2021, and concludes July 31, 2023. Fellows will be paid $36,279 per year plus a benefits package.

    The Post-Master’s Fellowship at the CSU Health Network is designed to prepare individuals for a staff position in a university counseling service, with particular emphasis on social workers or counselors wishing to work at universities that have integrated their mental health and medical services. The training of clinically skilled, ethical, self-aware, and culturally competent mental health professionals is central to our mission.

    A primary focus of the fellowship is the consolidation of clinical skills, to prepare Fellows for licensure and independent practice. In the first year of the fellowship, Fellows will obtain specialized training in the treatment of issues related to alcohol and other drug use through the DAY (Drugs, Alcohol, & You) Programs. During this year, they will work with both mandated and voluntary students as part of a multidisciplinary treatment team. The Fellow’s clinical hours will be divided between facilitation of psycho-educational workshops, national best-practice programs such as BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students), individual therapy with a focus on Motivational Interviewing, harm reduction groups, and participation in the Day Program’s multidisciplinary treatment team called Open to Change (OTC). OTC is the first treatment model of its kind, adapting components of the “Drug Court Model” for college students. Fellows may also work with the group and individual clients through General Services, and provide crisis and triage services during a weekly shift as a member of our OCC (On-Call Counseling) team.

    In the second year of the fellowship, Fellows will work primarily in General Services, where they will have the opportunity to provide individual/group therapy, and initial consultations (intakes). Fellows also will obtain the training needed to function effectively in a Behavioral Health setting. Fellows will develop skills in brief intervention, assessment, and crisis intervention during a weekly Behavioral Health (BH) shift as part of a collaborative, multidisciplinary medical team. BH often provides opportunities for Fellows to work with students who are uncomfortable with traditional counseling services, so Fellows may also have the opportunity to work with students from more diverse backgrounds during this component of their training.

    Fellows also are expected to commit to the development of cultural competence through self-examination and participation in university-based outreach and prevention services for both the general student population and underrepresented groups on campus.
