The Critical Prevention Counselor/Critical Intervention Specialist (CIS) manages a caseload of clients that are referred to us by the Alta California Regional Center (ACRC), covering Sacramento and surrounding counties and participates in weekly Clinical and Administrative meetings at our Sacramento office.
Our ideal candidate would be someone who has already graduated (or 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 and responding to crisis within one 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 working independently in the field, but ready to jump in to a team meeting at the office.
