Youth Transition Center Clinician
Tides Family Services | Providence, RI
Tides Family Services Youth Transition Center (YTC) is seeking a master’s level clinician to provide clinical assessments and treatment to youth involved in the Juvenile Justice System. The YTC clinician will provide a combination of individual and family home and office based clinical work as well as group therapy. The YTC is a collaborative community re-entry program. The primary purpose of the program is to provide Court involved youth with the intensive supervision services they need in order to remain in the community. The target population for the program is high-risk youth on probation, male and female adolescents from a variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds experiencing a wide array of behavioral, social, health/mental health, educational/vocational, and family problems. These youth are often impulsive, aggressive and in conflict, and they have an intense need for structure, supervision, safety and predictability. These youth are at-risk for probation violation, continuing offending behaviors, sentence/return to the Rhode Island Training School, and/or engaging in unsafe behavior for themselves and/or their communities. They are also in need of positive interaction with adults on a social, educational, and interpersonal level; and need positive success on the neighborhood/community level.
Education: Master's level required(LCSW/LICSW LMFT, LMHC preferred but not required)
Our History: Tides was founded in 1983 by Brother Michael Reis, a DeLaSalle Christian Brother, with $15,000 seed money. The Lasallian mission is to serve the neediest and poorest families in the community. Brother Michael realized interventions needed to happen before kids were placed in out-of –home care. He founded a much-needed “agency without walls” where outreach workers and clinical social workers meet with and provide critical services to youth in their homes, neighborhoods and schools. Today, we provide 24/7 services 365 days a year through 120 staff and an $8 million budget.
