Boston Child Study Center - Post-Doctoral Fellow Announcement
The Boston Child Study Center (BCSC) is now accepting applications for two, one-year full-time post-doctoral fellows beginning September 2018. BCSC is an evidence-based treatment center providing cutting edge mental health services to children, adolescents, young adults, and families. Our faculty specialize in the assessment and treatment of anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, somatic complaints, school avoidance, depression, mood disorders, self-harm, suicidal behaviors, trauma, learning disabilities, disruptive behavior disorders, and autism spectrum disorders.
BCSC provides specialized training in the following tracks: Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)/Teacher-Child Interaction Therapy (TCIT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), DBT-Prolonged Exposure (DBT-PE) for PTSD & high risk behaviors, Neuropsychological Assessment, Dissemination and Effectiveness Research, and College Admissions Coaching. Trainees select a major rotation and one minor rotation for the duration of the fellowship year. These training tracks are in addition to core training in the delivery of other evidence-based treatments, including, but not limited to: Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) for anxiety and depression, CBT/DBT Parent Coaching, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT)/behavioral treatment for impulse control disorders. These training experiences occur across both standard and intensive outpatient programs.
Working as part of a coordinated multidisciplinary treatment team, the post-doctoral fellows’ responsibilities include providing individual, family, and group therapy to youth between the ages of 3 and 25 and their families. Students will attend at least one week-long intensive training for their track (e.g., Behavior Tech training for DBT and/or DBT PE or a PCIT training from a Certified Master Trainer). Trainees who complete the PCIT or DBT training will receive the necessary training and supervision to become certified in DBT and/or PCIT upon licensure.
Consistent with BCSC’s commitment to training and didactics, fellows will spend at least 35-40% of their time receiving a minimum of 2 hours of individual supervision and one or more hours of group supervision, and they will also participate in BCSC’s multiple clinical rounds, consultation teams, research meetings, and peer supervisions. The fellow will also attend workshops, weekly seminars, grand rounds, and continuing education opportunities held throughout the year.
Salary is competitive at $47,485 and includes excellent benefits, such as health insurance, 20 vacation days, and sick leave. Funding is available for the fellow to attend at least one professional conference.
