NC Health Partners is looking to hire a Master’s level MST Therapist who has at least 2 years of MST experience. The MST Therapist will be responsible for providing intensive clinical treatment to a caseload of 5-6 clients. 

Key Responsibilities:

You will empower families to address problematic behaviors and to help their youth ages 12 - 17 make life-transforming changes. Treatment progress is made through intensive interventions such as changing unhelpful family interactions, addressing the youth’s problems with peers and in school, and increasing social support, to name a few. In addition to, you will receive ongoing team support, training and supervision in the MST model as you work holistically with families, youth, their communities, and other key members of their ecology to implement MST.

  • Provide intensive clinical treatment to families using the MST treatment model and principles 2-3 times per week. Some principles include leveraging strengths and focusing on the positive, understanding sequences of behavior, and increasing mature behavior.
