We are looking to fill a Clinical Therapist position that will work with both our START & Residential Programs.

The START Program is an intensive 24-hour Psychiatric Residential Treatment Program servicing male youth, ages 7-14 years of age.  Treatment is overseen by a psychiatrist and is more structured than traditional residential treatment, while still offering an open setting with regular access to the community.

Our Residential Treatment Program specializes in the treatment of adolescent boys & girls between the ages of 13-20, with psychiatric and/or behavioral challenges.  It’s family & youth focused, and youth receive individualized treatment directed by a multidisciplinary treatment team.  Services include a combination of office based and in-home family therapy.

The Clinical Therapist will be responsible for clinical services & general case management within the context of a treatment team for youth & families served by The Children’s Center of Hamden.
