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.
Roles and Responsibilities:
Location: The Jewish Board is hiring across Manhattan, The Bronx, and Staten Island.
