The Program for Psychology and Religion at St. Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute is seeking a licensed clinician with expertise in the integration of religion/spirituality and evidence based psychotherapy to provide outpatient therapy and participate as a member of the programs assessment team providing psychological evaluations for clergy and clergy candidates. Additionally, clinicians of the Program for Psychology and Religion provide group therapy and present psychoeducational workshops in the community on topics related to spirituality and wellbeing, and clergy/minister wellness. Preference will be given to psychologists who: a) have graduate level training or substantial clinical experience in the integration of religion/spirituality and psychotherapy; b) have expertise in psychological evaluation and report writing; c) have excellent written and oral communication skills; d) bring a clinical specialization which complements the Institutes current offerings (e.g., neuropsychology, addiction specialist, couples and family). Licensed clinical social workers and licensed professional counselors with requisite experience are also encouraged to apply.

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.

If you believe that your clinical experience is more general in nature and your knowledge base is not as specialized as our programs are structured, you may want to consider speaking with us about our Specialist-in-Training option.

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

Interested applicants must be fully licensed by the Missouri State Committee of Psychologists and credentialed (or credentialed-eligible) on managed care panels in Missouri. Doctorate degree in Psychology is stronglypreferred, Master's degree in a psychology-related field (such as an LCSW) will be considered. Please see Job Description for additional requirements. We encourage applicants with subspecialty interests and training. Please also submit interest letter and CV with your application.
