Multisystemic Therapy - Therapist Position, Onondaga County
We are offering a $2500.00 Sign on Bonus
Liberty Resources, Inc. is looking for an engaging clinician who is interested in supporting families in taking on tough challenges and achieve long lasting change through Multisystemic Therapy.
The program serves families of adolescents, age 12-17, who are at risk of involvement in the juvenile justice system. Trained and empowered with an evidence based model, therapists work to reduce youth’s behaviors that put them at risk of out of home placement, contact with law enforcement, or unsafe situations. As an MST therapist, you would engage the youth’s primary caregiver and other key participants across the systems (the identified youth, family members, school, service providers, etc.) in developing and implementing interventions to improve school attendance and performance, decrease substance use, increase prosocial connections, and improve family functioning. Families are served in their home which removes common barriers to treatment (transportation and childcare needs) and allows therapists to connect with the family in their natural ecology. Sessions are offered around the work schedules of caregivers and phone support is available to them as they implement challenging interventions. These components of the model support the family in achieving treatment goals within a short treatment window of 3-5 months and reduces their need for continued formal system support. Therapists benefit from intense training, supervision, and support that is built in to the model and have flexibility in their day due to the nontraditional schedule and ability to work remotely when not with families.
For more information on Multisystemic Therapy, and the profound impact it has on families across the world, please watch this video: How Does MST Work?, or visit MST’s website: www.mstservices.com. The interview process allows for candidates to gain a strong understanding of the position and how the model benefits families served.
