The Sky Center is staffed by experienced supervisors who provide intensive training to graduate interns of social work and counseling as well as advanced training for practicing clinicians, physicians, and school counselors. This training program, unique in New Mexico, utilizes a team approach with one-way mirror direct observation and live supervision.

Training consists of:

  • Mindful awareness strategies that build therapeutic presence and emotional resiliency skills necessary for letting go of client stories
  • Culturally competent approaches that recognize the differences and uniqueness of all families
  • Practical skill based interventions to help families address serious issues and experience change
  • The whole village concept that invites multigenerational, extended and blended families to protect a youth from risk

Hundreds of graduate students have received training in family and group therapy at The Sky Center. Over 90% of these therapists stay in New Mexico and continue to serve local communities with their newly developed specialized skills and cultural competencies.
