We are looking for a clinician with skills and experience leading DBT skills groups and delivering individual DBT therapy. Clinicians applying to this program need to be trained and/or willing to be trained in adherence in the Linehan protocol, including participating in a DBT consultation group. Applicants with experience treating adolescents with DBT are especially encouraged to apply. The program offers outpatient care (traditional individual outpatient therapy, outpatient group therapy) and a more intensive DBT IOP; the selected clinician would have the opportunity to work at both levels of care. The program will be expanding its services to Adolescents and their families. As such, there is opportunity for professional development and contribution to an innovative program.

What are the Benefits of joining our team?

Our clinicians enjoy the aspects of being an independent provider that are appealing, while having the administrative and operational support to manage everything else that you need as a provider. As a full-time employee of SLBMI, we offer a centralized intake office that screens and schedules a steady flow of clients for clinicians; an efficient and professionally run billing service; marketing support; assistance in managing managed care, including credentialing, and consultation on practice development.

We encourage our clinicians to schedule their practice in ways that allow them to achieve their lifestyle preferences, while still maintaining an active patient caseload and participating in their specialty program needs. Clinicians are also able to expand outside the specialty program areas to capture additional areas of expertise that clinicians may bring as well. We utilize a compensation plan based upon percentage of net cash collections for our clinicians, again allowing our clinicians to have more independence in their practice while earning competitive compensation. Such a model allows for work-life balance, while also providing the ability to earn more if the clinician desires to have a larger caseload. You would also be part of a multidisciplinary team of over 60 excellent colleagues willing to share their clinical expertise for case consultation, continuing education, and program development.

We support our clinicians to further their career through providing opportunities for clinical presentations/speaking opportunities, consultations, research, and continuing education. SLBMI also provides a comprehensive benefits package, rarely found in private practice, including professional liability insurance.

What is the Specialist in Training model option?

The Specialist-in-Training model is housed within a full-time salaried-based plan (benefits-eligible). This is a transition plan for a full-time compensation-based clinical position with SLBMI.

This training salaried model consists of a three to six month period. Generally this time consists of: weekly supervision; assigned reading; didactic sessions to discuss the readings and receive additional education; increased conceptualization in treatment plans reviewed by your supervisor; attendance of open supervision and discussion of other SLBMI programs that may be part of your training time. Other types of activities may be possible which would enhance your skills as a clinician in general, as well as within your specialty area.

The overall goals are: 1) to solidify your knowledge of the scientific, theoretical, and therapeutic approaches to working within your specialty program area, 2) to enhance your ability to perform relevant evaluations and assessments, 3) to effectively apply scientific knowledge within the context of your psychological interventions, and 4) to independently evaluate and provide therapeutic practice for the specific program you are working within.

At the end of the Specialist-in-Training period, you and your supervisor would review your current standing and make a decision whether you should go forward to a full clinical caseload or continue under more limited supervision.

Specialist-in-Training applicants are accepted year-round and are based on our current open employment positions available.

Job Requirements
