Community Connections is a nationally recognized agency which is the largest, not for profit, behavioral health services provider in Washington DC.
Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) clinical staff, known as Rehabilitation Specialists, work collaboratively on multi-disciplinary teams serving those who need the highest intensity of services: consumers with frequent medical and psychiatric hospitalizations, arrests, problems with addiction and episodes of homelessness. ACT teams are supervised by either licensed clinical social workers (LICSW) or licensed practicing counselors (LPC). The team effort is strong, with morning meetings each day and a collaborative approach to clinical care. With small case loads, clinical staff can work intensively with consumers on the range of independent living skills including coping strategies, relapse prevention, money management, personal care and medication compliance.
ACT teams require innovative, inspired, and energetic staff who enjoy the nitty-gritty work of street outreach and intensive care coordination. Strong writing skills are essential as the clinical documentation of services is a key component of the job. Candidates must have a reliable vehicle as most of the work is done in the community. This position requires a BA or MA degree. Those applicants with an MSW or an MA in Counseling must have a graduate license in hand (LGSW or LGPC) before they can commence employment. We offer supervision towards independent clinical licensure, and excellent benefits.
Interested candidates should submit a resume and cover letter to Rebecca Wolfson Berley, LICSW at: email@example.com
