About the Job
Meadowridge Academy is a 36 bed therapeutic boarding school that specializes in trauma-informed services for adolescents with complex trauma histories, mental health issues, educational challenges, and/or behavioral difficulties. At Meadowridge Academy, support is provided for students with all levels of functioning who may have learning disabilities as well as medical fragility. We provide comprehensive care including a school on site, a full clinical staff, nursing staff, and 24 hour direct care supervision. We utilize a unique ARC (Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency) treatment framework which focuses on building individual capacities for emotion regulation, personal strengths, and healthy relationships. Our mission is to protect and support our students while developing their strengths and teaching them skills.
Meadowridge Academy is seeking a full time Master's Level Clinician (licensed or licensed eligible clinician) who is a dynamic and clinically astute individual to join our team. This clinician will display the ability to attune to each student’s needs, have reflective curiosity, and utilize creative, trauma-informed interventions to effectively support each student. Our clinicians work collaboratively with all aspects of the adolescent’s therapeutic programming, including education, nursing, milieu, and competency. Our clinicians have a specialized interest in the impact and treatment of complex trauma and are motivated to learn and integrate the concepts of ARC throughout the adolescent’s therapeutic programming, including spending time modeling the framework on the floor. Our therapeutic framework provides the unique opportunity for clinicians to interact with adolescents across all domains of their life, including but not limited to spending time in the classroom, practicing skills in the community, as well as fostering success within their home environment. Discharge planning begins at intake; therefore, our clinicians work with members of a student’s treatment team to planfully and safely reintegrate students into the community and reunite them with their families when clinically indicated.
Clinical experience working with adolescents in a mental health setting, preferably experience in a residential setting, excellent communication skills, and strong leadership skills. Job responsibilities include, but are not limited to: providing individual, group and family therapy, case management, crisis intervention, risk assessment, case conceptualization, treatment planning, comprehensive assessments, aftercare planning.
