BHBA is pleased to announce an exciting 3rd year externship opportunity for the period of June 2017 – May 2018. This adherent Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) private practice provides services to children, adolescents and adults using the DBT-C, Rathus/Miller and adult DBT manuals. We need one extern with strong risk assessment and diagnostic evaluation skills to function as the intake coordinator for the practice. The extern will communicate well in writing, in person and over the phone, have great organizational skills and be responsibilities for the initial screening process, conduct intakes with adults, families and teens and will carry a small case-load. The extern will also be an integral part of the adherent consultation team and have the opportunity to co-lead a DBT skills class. There are required weekly didactics, individual therapy supervision groups and skills supervision groups, in addition to Team consultation, which take place on Tuesday and Fridays during the work day. The extern can expect to work approximately 15 hours per week. Intake coordination over email and telephone can be done offsite and patient intakes will be scheduled at convenient times for the extern and patient. In addition to DBT, the extern will be exposed to the evidence based practices of Parent Management Training (PMT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and treatment for OCD.
Interested applicants should send a CV, a cover letter and two letters of recommendation to Dr. Belinda Bellet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BHBA will follow the guidelines of the Psychology Directors of New York State (PSYDNYS) and the New York New Jersey Association of Directors of Training (NYNJADOT).
