CHILD & FAMILY THERAPIST
IN-HOME SERVICES PROGRAM - FAMILY PRESERVATION / REUNIFICATION
Bilingual and Non-Bilingual Positions Available
Southwest Human Development and the In-Home Services program are pleased to offer employment opportunities for child and family therapists. We are actively seeking well-trained and skilled therapists (bilingual preferred) to become part of our team.
Our In-Home Services program provides intensive, supportive in-home services for families referred by the Department of Child Safety due to allegations of child abuse or neglect. Our goals are to preserve and reunify families and keep children safely in the home with their families whenever possible. Each family is assigned a team consisting of a Family Counselor (therapist) and Family Support Specialist who work closely together to address families’ needs, visiting families several times per week in their homes. Services are provided throughout Maricopa County.
Together, the team provides nurturing parenting skills training and child development education with an emphasis on bonding and attachment, home and life management skills, and linkage to community resources while continually assessing for safety. Our therapists provide individual, couple, child or family therapy to address a wide variety of issues which impact child and family well-being - including trauma, substance use, mental health, parent-child relationships, coping skills, communication skills, etc. In-Home therapists complete comprehensive assessments, develop service plans, use evidence-based therapeutic interventions as well as assist in care coordination and aftercare planning. Services are brief (up to 120 days) and are therefore, intensive.
Candidates for this position would have the opportunity to receive clinical supervision and accrue hours towards independent licensure.
Position is offered full-time with an excellent benefits package as noted below. Southwest Human Development is an equal opportunity employer.
