DPO training services creates, promotes, and fosters an organizational learning culture that values development, diversity, and growth opportunities for all of our colleagues.

Emerging Leaders Program
Turning Point Community Programs recognizes that encouragement, motivation, and inspiration are at the heart of leadership. We want our colleagues to learn, grow, and thrive within the agency so we developed the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP). The ELP is committed to fostering a colleague’s higher view exposure to agency administrative and programmatic operations in order to encourage and empower our colleagues to serve as future leaders at any level within our organization.

Navigating Leadership Program
Our Navigating Leadership Program (NLP) equips our colleagues in leadership roles with the skills, strategies, and tools to rise to their leadership responsibilities and effectively guide their teams. Through the NLP our leaders develop their own leadership style to meet the distinct challenges of leading their teams. Skills are developed that serve and shape team culture to maximize talent and elevate team performance, with a foundation in effective communication, thoughtful collaboration, and psychological safety.

No matter where our colleagues may be on their leadership journey, we support our team members to learn, grow, and thrive.

Mentoring Program
Our colleagues have immeasurable talent! Turning Point Community Programs mentoring program taps into the knowledge and experience of our colleagues to provide a structured, inclusionary, and networked learning process that facilitates peer-to-peer sharing of knowledge. Mentors connect with their peers to share advice, offer guidance, and support mentees’ professional growth and development in various areas of expertise that range from soft skills to clinical education.

Targeted Mentoring Program
Colleagues helping colleagues. The Targeted Mentoring Program (TMP) partners advanced and mentoring performance-rated colleagues with colleagues who may exhibit at-risk performance in order to learn, grow, and thrive in a safe environment without judgment.

Turning Point Community Programs (TPCP) has the privilege of serving more than 100 student interns each school year who require field work or practicum placements. We have partnered with more than 130 different universities throughout the United States. We have placement opportunities in more than 50 programs with sites in several Northern California counties, serving members from early childhood through adulthood. What sets TPCP apart is the richness of the diversity of experiences in environments where the tone is of hope, optimism, and enthusiasm as each intern/trainee moves toward their learning goals.

TPCP’s goal is to structure an internship/trainee program that is exemplary, well-organized, and a comprehensive experience for interns/trainees. Each site structures an internship/trainee experience to best meet the needs of the interns/trainees via a tailored description of their program and the service recipients’ service provision.

Our hope is that through offering these internship opportunities, more mental health professionals will bring enthusiasm and a belief that “a diagnosis is not a destiny” to their work with those experiencing psychiatric disabilities.

To request placement, please email


Interns and trainees come to TPCP at different stages in their professional development from their college/university programs (i.e., last year of their Bachelors, 1st, 2nd, 3rd year of Master’s, and Doctorate programs).

The internship/trainee-ship responsibilities at TPCP will uphold and continue the structured expectation and rich learning opportunities currently offered through their school/university programs.
