After all of the time and effort you put into achieving your Master's degree, it is time to meet the people we serve, they need you.
The Critical Intervention Specialist manages a caseload of clients that are referred to us by the North LA County Regional Center, covering throughout the San Fernando Valley counties and participates in weekly Clinical and administrative meetings at our office.
Our ideal candidate would be someone who has already graduated (or at at the tail-end) from the Master's program for Social Work, Psychology, Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy, or another related field. He/She would be a road warrior; who would have no issues driving in and around the respective coverage area (including parking SF) and responding to crisis within the hour. Our ideal candidate would have previous experience advocating, supporting, stabilizing, or working with those with either intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and their inner and outer circle. He/She would be adaptable - being comfortable with working independently the field, but ready to jump in to a team at the office, in order to create a cohesive collaboration (teaching and learning); bringing in your individual expertise to the forefront. The SF team might be small but they are mighty!
