Salary differential for bilingual Spanish-speaking therapists.


Job Summary:

We are looking for compassionate and dedicated people who are looking for ongoing professional growth and development in our Multisystemic Family Therapy Program.  MST is an evidence based intensive in-home that provides clinical services to adolescents that have substance use and/or problematic and high-risk behaviors.  Therapists have a small caseload which allows you to work holistically with families, youth, their communities and other key members of their ecology. MST Therapists receive on-going team support, training, group supervision, and licensure supervision.

 Duties and Responsibilities:

·        Engage in weekly case planning and evaluation of case progress, with ongoing support from your supervisor and team members, including through group supervision.

·        While only one therapist works with a particular family, the MST team facilitates a supportive work environment to cover each other’s clients for vacation/time off and support each other to maintain a work/life balance.

·        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 helping families develop skills to sustain progress after treatment as well.

·        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. 

·        Work comfortably with a diverse community of clients

·        Continuously work to engage the primary caregiver, family members, supports, and community agency staff (school, probation, child welfare) in change-oriented treatment.
