STAR Proficiency Certification
Completion of a Level 2 Mentorship Program allows participants the option to obtain STAR Proficiency Certification Level 2.
The Level 2 Intensive Mentorship Program, Hands-On Advanced Treatment, is conducted over 5 days on-site at STAR Institute in Centennial, Colorado.
Level 2 Mentees must be an occupational therapist and will work with STAR Institute clients and their families, leading treatment sessions each day with the support of expert-level STAR Institute faculty. Extensive opportunity for reflection and collaboration with other mentees is included.
The objective of STAR Institute's Level 2: Hands-On Advanced Treatment is to develop advanced clinical skills through hands-on treatment, active mentoring, advanced lecture topics, and self-reflection. The intensive format allows for a deeper understanding of the STAR PROCESS treatment model, integrating information from Level 1 coursework with the relationship-based, family-centered approach that is foundational to STAR.

- Explain regulation in child and self and resulting impacts on treatment session
- Develop relationships between self and client to support therapeutic gains

We will notify you by email within 5 business days regarding your acceptance into the program. Participant selection will be based on priority of applications received and previous work/educational experience.

Since a small number of candidates will be accepted per session, our selection process is quite stringent. We do this to ensure the best possible pairing of mentees and skill sets and to establish a setting conducive to learning in this intensive program format.
All Participants will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID and provide proof in advance in order to attend this program. In addition, please be aware of our our current COVID Guidelines and Policies.
Participants are asked to bring a laptop computer to download the videos from treatment each day for review. We will capture each session on a Flip camera, so you will simply plug it into your laptop each day and save it to your desktop. We also recommend bringing a 16 Gig memory stick (flash drive) as well if possible. The laptop should have a movie making program installed (iMovie for Mac, Windows Media Player or Windows Movie Maker for PC) that you are familiar with and comfortable using. Participants are required to download treatment video and edit it on a daily basis. If it isn’t possible for you to bring a laptop with you, we will try to arrange for you to use one while at STAR Institute.
Participants must stay for the entire duration of the program during all 5 days. 1-2 hours of homework per night of mentorship will also be required. This will include video review and analysis, treatment note writing and/or other activities as determined by your Mentor.
