Job Description

Do you have a passion for working with children and families? We are looking for compassionate, dedicated people who want to empower youth and families by creating strength-based behavior change that will be sustained long after treatment ends.

This position's duties will include the following:

  • Engage in weekly case planning and evaluation of case progress, with ongoing support from your supervisor and team members, including through group supervision.
  • Receive regular training, professional development, supervision, and consultation activities designed to help you acquire extensive clinical skills within the MST treatment model.
  • Provide clinical treatment to families using the MST treatment model and principles. Some principles include leveraging strengths and focusing on the positive, understanding sequences of behavior, and increasing mature behavior.
  • Conduct a thorough assessment of the client and family: gather information on behaviors of concern and strengths in the family and their ecology to inform conceptualization of the problem behaviors and interactions within the family's ecological context.
  • Continuously work to engage the primary caregiver, family members, supports, and other local community agency staff (i.e. school, probation, child welfare) in change-oriented treatment.

Position Requirements:

  • LPC, LCSW, or LMFT preferred
  • Will consider the following at lower pay, based on level of credentials:

  • Therapy with children and adults using cognitive-behavioral techniques
  • Couples therapy using behaviorally-based approaches
  • Implementation of interventions within or between systems in the youth's natural ecology (i.e., family, peer,
