Mental Health Worker Licensed Clinician
Do you have a passion for making a difference in the lives of at-risk youth? Would you like to be part of one of the fastest growing mental agencies in the State? Would you like to work with state-of-the-art technology as you deliver services to clients?
As a Licensed Clinician you would be working as a leader on a multi-disciplinary team in a short-term intensive treatment program. This position provides therapeutic and prevention services to clients and families.
Those services include assessment, treatment planning, individual/family therapy, collateral support, case management, education, de-stigmatization of mental health issues, and crisis intervention. This position provides weekly consultation for Therapeutic Behavior Coaches, who are para-professionals. These consultations monitor and promote clinically grounded interventions that are used with Clients. Within SCCS, this position will work in the TBS Program, and "TBS" stands for Therapeutic Behavioral Services.
Our clinician, para-professional, and support personnel positions are not easy jobs. These jobs cry out for people with a special calling, a love for others.
We are tasked with meeting the urgent needs of some of the most vulnerable people in our community. The work can be heart-wrenching, and then there's the government-required paperwork. It's a tough job, but it's rewarding, too. Really rewarding.
Management staff are highly supportive. They won't coddle you.
They will challenge you to be better at your craft and they will help you get there. Don't expect a "participation trophy"--this is serious work and our staff have literally saved lives. The biggest part of Management's job is to support and empower our staff to help others in need.
We "tell you like it is" and, as a leader, we expect you to do the same for others.
We strive to give all employees a work environment that is comfortable and efficient so you can focus on why we all entered this field--for the care of others.
Experience and Skills:
Master's degree in Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy, or Psychology.
