Monsour Counseling and Psychological Services

Salary Range

Position Description
Monsour Counseling and Psychological Services (MCAPS) is seeking two full-time (40 hours/week) post-doctoral therapists for the 2013-14 academic year. We are looking for competent clinicians who would like to join a dynamic staff who are passionate about the services they provide to students. This is a 9.5-month position (anticipated start August 12, 2013, extending through May 23, 2014).

Post-doctoral therapists have general responsibility for the following duties: Providing individual, couple, and group counseling (approximately 60% of time), conducting crisis intervention, participating in evening and weekend on-call duties, conducting psycho-educational outreach programs, assisting students in their personal and educational goals, providing training/consultation with faculty and staff of the Colleges, and other duties as assigned. Post-doctoral therapists are provided with individual supervision, multicultural and clinical training seminars, group case conferences, and intake disposition team meetings.

Full-time post-doctoral stipend: $25,000. Post-doctoral staff members are eligible for medical, dental, life insurance, and retirement benefits (employer contribution equal to 10% of annual salary). Four weeks of leave time is scheduled over winter break. Post-doctoral staff may be required to work on some holidays (in particular, please note that MCAPS is open on Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, MLK, and Presidents Day). Reimbursement for professional liability insurance is available. Reimbursement and release time for professional development may be available, upon approval.

The full-time post-doctoral experience is structured such that it meets all requirements for the 1500 hours of post-doctoral Supervised Professional Experience (SPE) necessary for licensure in California. Note that it is the post-doctoral candidate’s responsibility to determine whether this placement will meet the requirements for licensure in other states, as some states require more than 1500 hours of SPE and may have additional regulations regarding these hours.

Monsour Counseling and Psychological Services is staffed by licensed, doctoral-level senior-staff psychologists, who provide supervision for the post-doctoral therapists and pre-doctoral interns.
