Job Description

Job description:
Organizational Summary
The Child Mind Medical Practice (CMMP) is dedicated to transforming mental health care for children everywhere. We are committed to finding more effective treatments for childhood psychiatric and learning disorders, building the science of healthy brain development, and empowering children and their families to get help, hope and answers.

The ADHD and Disruptive Behavior Disorders Center is one of three programs that comprise the Child Mind Medical Practice. The Center provides innovative treatment options for children and adolescents with a variety of disorders and actively evaluates cutting edge delivery models. Our specialized services include (i) our PCIT Training Academy, led by two of only 16 PCIT Master Trainers worldwide, (ii) a Teacher-Child Interaction Therapy (TCIT) program that brings evidence based practices to teachers to maximize their behavior management skills, and (iii) school consultation in the New York metro area, as well as nationally and internationally.

Job Summary
The Clinical Psychologist, under the direction of the Senior Director of the ADHD and Disruptive Behavior Disorders Center, is responsible for providing diagnostic evaluations and treatment to children and adolescents with behavioral problems, particularly associated with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), conduct disorder (CD), and other disruptive behavior disorders (DBDs). Emotional dysregulation is common among our patients, particularly the adolescents so candidates should expect to provide treatment to children and adolescents with comorbid anxiety and mood disorders. The clinical psychologist is expected to provide empirically-supported cognitive behavioral treatments such as Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), behavioral parent training (BPT), or other proven interventions for children and adolescents with externalizing disorders. The clinical psychologist will also provide parent training where PCIT is not indicated or feasible and participate in school based programming to provide educators with behavior management techniques in the classroom.
The selected candidates will have an exciting opportunity to shape their position based on experience and specific skill set. CMI is involved in a number of ventures such as expanding our adolescent DBT team, building our school-based programming efforts, and developing innovative programming to enhance the ADHD and Disruptive Behavior Disorders Center.
This is an exempt position located in our NYC headquarters. CMI offers competitive salary and benefits.
