Job Description:

MST THERAPIST

Are you looking for a fulfilling career where you can improve the lives of youth and their families? Hempfield is looking for the right individual to assess, treat, and collaborate with families, youth, and community agency staff for the community-based treatment model, Multisystemic Therapy. This evidence-based program positively re-directs youth involved in criminal activity. This individual will join a dynamic MST team at HBH and receive support through weekly supervision and consultation. Hempfield is committed to helping people change in ways that can lead to greater personal happiness, competence and satisfaction. We apply effective, research-supported treatments in natural settings. We partner with our clients, their families and communities to analyze problems, design and implement change strategies and develop mechanisms that encourage continued growth after our involvement.

Over a period of 4 - 6 months services are delivered in homes, neighborhoods, schools and communities with periodic on call-24 hour coverage within the team. Emphasis is on promoting behavioral change in the youth's natural environment. Family interventions seek to promote the parent's capacity to monitor and discipline the adolescent. Initial family sessions identify the strengths and weaknesses of the youth, family, peers, school, and other factors. Problems throughout the family are explicitly identified for change, and the strengths of each system are used to facilitate such change.

QUALIFICATIONS: A Master's degree in Social Services or related field, plus two (2) years of work experience in social work or clinical treatment. Social Work or other clinical license is preferred.

Preferred Experience: --- Direct use of pragmatic (i.e. structural, strategic and functional) family therapies --- Individual therapy with children and adults using cognitive behavioral techniques --- Marital therapy using behaviorally-based approaches --- Behavioral therapy targeting school behavior and academic performance --- Implementation of interventions within or between systems in the youth's natural ecology that affect or influence the behavior of youth (i.e. family, peer, school, and neighborhood)

Preferred Knowledge: --- Family systems theory and application --- Social ecological theory and application --- Behavioral therapies theory and application --- Cognitive-behavioral therapy theory and application --- Pragmatic family therapies theory and application --- Child development research and its application in treatment --- Social skills assessment and intervention
