Child Mind Institute is now recruiting a Senior Director for its ADHD and Behavior Disorders Center, one of four clinical programs that comprise our rapidly expanding Child Mind Medical Practice. The Senior Director of the ADHD and Behavior Disorders Center is responsible for providing diagnostic evaluations and treatment to children and adolescents from across our nation and from around the world with behavioral problems, particularly associated with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), conduct disorder (CD), and other disruptive behavior disorders (DBDs). Emotional dysregulation is common among our patients so the Center also provides treatment to children and adolescents with comorbid anxiety and mood disorders. Center clinicians provide empirically supported behavioral treatments such as Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), behavioral parent training (BPT), or other evidence-based interventions for children and adolescents with externalizing disorders.
The Senior Director provides leadership around the strategy and clinical focus of the ADHD and Behavior Disorders Center to ensure Center goals are aligned with the mission of the Child Mind Institute. The Senior Director is a demonstrated master clinician and is responsible for the clinical productivity and professional growth of the Center’s faculty to ensure high quality, evidence-based clinical care.
