Staff Psychologist, Ctr for Effective Child Therapy & Assoc Director of the Training Institute



Judge Baker Children's Center (JBCC) is hiring for an exciting new position! We are looking for someone to join our team as both a Staff Psychologist at the Center for Effective Child Therapy (CECT) and Associate Director of the Training Institute.

Reporting to the Clinical Director, the Staff Psychologist serves 90% of the time as a member of the clinical faculty at CECT, JBCC's APA accredited outpatient training clinic and Harvard Medical School affiliate, delivering high fidelity cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and behavioral parent training (BPT) approaches in both in-person and virtual formats. This exciting position provides the opportunity to join a team of dedicated and skilled clinicians with respective expertise in several evidence-based treatments. The Staff Psychologist will be welcomed onto the clinical training faculty and be a core member of the clinical team. The Staff Psychologist will be provided opportunities to be trained and certified in the Modular Approach to Therapy for Children with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, or Conduct Problems (MATCH ADTC) and Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) by in-house trainers as well as other potential trainings in a broader range of EBTs (e.g., ACT, TF-CBT, DBT).

This position will help our Center expand access to high quality evidence-based outpatient services in Boston while assisting in training the next generation of clinicians through our practicum, internship, and postdoctoral fellowship training programs. While this role will begin primarily as a clinical and direct service position, opportunities to supervise doctoral students and build out new service lines will become available with demonstrated success and performance in the clinical role.

One of the exciting aspects of this role is that the Staff Psychologist will be our first new hire as we begin to take public health insurance for the first time. We are actively working to assemble a team that can best serve an increasingly diverse population of children and families, and enhance our innovation, and achieve our clinical, operational and strategic goals.

As the Associate Director of the Training Institute (10% time), this individual will report to the VP of Clinical Programs, Implementation, and Training, and will assist in coordinating training initiatives through JBCC's Training Institute, which hosts numerous trainings in a broad range of evidence-based treatments for community providers. Adjustments to the job time distribution when project demands necessitate are possible.

We have a strong commitment to promoting the professional development of our staff and provide free, in-house training opportunities as well as free monthly continuing education seminars. Qualifying individuals are eligible for a faculty appointment at Harvard Medical School.

Currently, our therapy services are being offered via telehealth and we expect that telehealth will continue to be a portion of our clinical service model post-pandemic.
