St. Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute (SLBMI) is recruiting experienced clinicians with strong skills and experience within the following specialty programs: Director, Eating Disorder Program; Clinical Director, Dialectical Behavior Therapy Program; Center for OCD and Anxiety-Related Disorders, Women's Reproductive Mental Health and Wellness Program; and Health Psychology Program. We are also looking to add a clinical staff member to our team with specialty skills within Depression and/or Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
For our Director positions, previous experience with program development and management is strongly preferred.
We are also open to discussing other clinical specialties not listed in our open positions above.
What are the Benefits of joining our team? We support our clinicians to be successful in a number of ways. You would be part of a team of excellent colleagues willing to share their clinical expertise for case consultation, continuing education, and program development. 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. The Institute provides a comprehensive benefits package, rarely found in private practice, including professional liability insurance. We also utilize a compensation plan based upon percentage of net cash collections for our clinicians, allowing our clinicians to have more independence in their practice while earning competitive compensation. Such a model allows for work and life balance for clinicians who work within our team, while also providing the ability to earn more if the clinician desires to have a larger caseload.
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? We also offer employment within a Specialist-in-Training model option, within a salaried-based plan. This 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.
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 strongly preferred, Master's degree in a psychology-related field (such as an LCSW) will be considered.
