Couples Resource Collective is a nonprofit training facility for trainees, associates, as well as a group practice for licensed clinicians who either have a passion for working with couples or would like to hone their couples therapy skills. Our non-licensed staff receive additional training that focuses primarily on working with couples and adult individuals. However, we also provide some specific trainings on risk assessment and law and ethics as well as a $100 annual stipend to attend additional trainings outside our organization. We generally work with students/clinicians who have an interest in developing a private practice or being part of a group practice and we gear our training to provide education and guidance on how to successfully prepare for that once they become licensed.
