Multisystemic Therapy for Problem Sexual Behavior (MST/PSB) is a clinical adaptation of Multisystemic Therapy that is targeted to adolescents who have committed sexual offenses and demonstrated other problem behaviors. MST/PSB has been proven effective at decreasing problem sexual and other antisocial behaviors and out-of-home placements. MST/PSB is an intensive, ecological intervention that is directed at youth and their families, with the collaboration of community based resources such as caseworkers, probation/parole officers, and school professionals.

The qualified, selected applicant will carry a very small caseload, and work intensively with referred youth, their caregivers, juvenile court and other involved community resources. The position offers excellent professional development opportunities including extensive initial and ongoing training and expert team consultation in the MST/PSB model, family therapy, and other evidence based interventions that support the attainment of treatment goals.

A Master's Degree in Social Work or Counseling, an LSW or LPC, and prior experience in the delivery of mental health services in the home/community to children and families with complex needs is essential.
