Apply to Join Our Board of Directors

As Partnerships for Trauma Recovery fulfills its vital mission to heal international survivors of human rights abuses, we’re recruiting social leaders with the will and capacity to invest in building a solid, sustainable foundation for change. Our Board of Directors see the big picture when it comes to global challenges, recognizing not only the tremendous need for addressing psychological trauma caused by human rights abuses, but also the possibilities for narrowing the global mental health gap through intelligent, informed strategies grounded in reality. Through intentional action, our Board of Directors embody hope for a more peaceful and just future.

We are currently recruiting two individuals to join our Board of Directors. We are especially interested in leaders in their fields who reflect the diversity of our client population which includes forcibly displaced people from 33 countries throughout the world including countries in Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and South Asia,  and who bring knowledge that complements and strengthens our current Board composition.

Current Board members include experts in the fields of psychology, human rights, law, policy advocacy, nonprofit strategy and corporate giving.  Of particular interest are individuals who are passionate about our cause and interested in helping PTR expand its constituency and base of supporters through their corporate and individual networks.

Clinical Internships

At our Mosaic Healing Center in Berkeley, Partnerships for Trauma Recovery offers a unique clinical training program in global mental health and human rights for doctoral students in clinical psychology, and post-graduate associates in clinical social work and marriage & family therapy.  Our Global Healing & Human Rights curriculum is rooted in globally culturally reflective, trauma-informed and relationally-based approaches, to serve forcibly displaced international populations who have experienced extreme levels of trauma and loss due to violence and persecution in their countries of origin.

We accept  interns in their third year and beyond of clinical training, and our program takes place from September to July each year.  We require 3 days per week (24 hours) of placement at PTR, and our internships are unpaid.   Applications are due by mid-February every year, and training cohorts are established by April. 

We also accept applications for Postdoctoral Fellows in Clinical Psychology.  

If interested in our Global Healing & Human Rights Clinical Training Program, please send your most recent CV, a cover letter addressing your interest in our training program, and a confidential written case presentation illustrating your approach to clinical work to Annika Sridharan, Psy.D at asridharan@traumapartners.org

Applications will be reviewed every year between January and April, for training beginning the following September.
