Job Description

The MST-CAN (Multisystemic Therapy for Child Abuse & Neglect) is an evidenced-based treatment and child welfare program for children ages (6-17) and families that come under the guidance of Child Protective Services due to physical abuse and neglect.  MST-CAN is an intensive therapy that provides a holistic approach. Lasting six to nine months, MST-CAN focuses on families, tailoring interventions to the specific risk factors that contribute to child physical abuse and neglect for each individual family.  Major goals of the program include:  keeping families together, assuring children are safe, preventing abuse and neglect, reducing mental health difficulties experienced by adults and children, and increasing natural social support.


The MST-CAN Supervisor provides administrative and clinical leadership of the program and is responsible for supervision and instruction relative to the treatment services delivered by the program staff.  The Clinical Supervisor ensures administrative and clinical integration, coordination, and collaboration of the program services into the overall functioning of the organization.


Some responsibilities include:

  • Conduct weekly group supervision for MST-CAN team to assure adherence to MST Principles and the MST Analytic Process.
  • Conduct individual supervision as needed to target clinician competency needs and to remove individual barriers to effective implementation of MST-CAN treatment.
  • Assure appropriate documentation of clinical effort to allow for peer and supervisory input, and to meet all reporting and communication needs of funding and referral sources.
  • Provide supportive and corrective feedback to clinicians to promote client outcomes through interventions such as enacting role play and practice, attending field visits with therapists, acting as co-therapist in sessions, listening to audio tapes of clinicians’ sessions, and providing feedback about clinicians’ performance.
  • Provide administrative support targeting systemic barriers to treatment success.
  • Provide direct clinical training to assure clinician competency in all clinical areas relating to the implementation of MST-CAN interventions. This includes enacting role play and practice, attending field visits with therapists, acting as co-therapist in sessions, listening to audio tapes of clinicians’ sessions, and providing feedback about clinicians’ performance.
  • Work with the Family Services Research Center at the Medical University of South Carolina to ensure that all data for the TAM-CAN and required research measures are collected.
  • Build a relationship with community stakeholders (i.e., child protection services, Guardians ad Litem, judges, schools, etc.) to ensure that there is a continuous stream of referrals, and that customer satisfaction is high.
