The Program:

Trauma informed Services is responsible for delivering internal and external Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) training, as well as clinical consultation and services.
NMT is not a specific therapeutic technique or intervention. It is a developmentally sensitive, neurobiology-informed approach to clinical problem solving. It integrates core principles of neurodevelopment and traumatology to inform our work with children and families. The Neurosequential approach has three key components: training/capacity building, assessment, and providing recommendations for the selection and sequencing of therapeutic, educational and enrichment activities that match the needs and strengths of the individual.

We are looking for Two Full Time Clinicians, based upon a 40 hour work week.

Availability and preparedness to work a flexible schedule to meet the needs of the program when required including evenings and weekends. This may include travel to complete or facilitate training.
