About The Jewish Board:

The Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services strengthens families and communities throughout New York City by helping individuals of all backgrounds realize their potential and live as independently as possible. Guided by the values of hope, recovery and resilience, each year The Jewish Board has an impact in the lives of over 40,000 individuals and families in New York City. Our work is done across the city, encompassing 75 facilities, including 10 residences serving 400 children each year, 14 mental health clinics and 24 additional satellite clinics, 37 supportive housing programs totaling 1200 units, and 10 kosher residences that are home to 130 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.


About the Position:

A clinical adaptation of Multi-Systemic Therapy, MST-EA is a promising practice that provides intensive individual treatment for transition age youth (ages 17-26) with both a recent history of criminal involvement and behavioral health challenges. MSTE-EA (1) is delivered in the community (clients’ homes, schools, neighborhoods) to ensure ecological validity and treatment generalization, (2) occurs with a high level of intensity and frequency (often three or more sessions per week), (3) incorporates treatment interventions that are strongly supported and informed by research, and (4) places a high premium on approaching each client/family as unique. The Jewish Board is seeking an individual with strong clinical training and experience to supervise a team of 3-4 therapists in implementing MST-EA in the New York City metropolitan area. Supervisor duties include liaison with collaborating agencies, providing ongoing clinical evaluation and staff development for therapists, interfacing with MST-EA expert consultants, and providing overall program management. The supervisor must be available to support therapists 24 hours per day, 7 days per week with backup from other agency supervisory staff. Specific experience in CBT, motivational interviewing, and behaviorally based treatment is preferred. In addition, 2-3 years of clinical supervisory experience is preferred.
