Trauma Recovery Center Clinical Coordinator
Ruby's Place, a 48 year old non-profit specializing in helping those who have been affected by human trafficking, domestic violence and violent crimes is looking for a skilled Clinical Coordinator to join our Trauma Recover Center team. Trauma Recovery Center (TRC) is a program model developed by UCSF that was the first of its kind in California. It is designed to help victims of violent crime overcome barriers to accessing mental health treatment, health care, and legal resources in the acute aftermath of trauma. The TRC serves recent victims of violent crime, including survivors of physical assault, sexual assault, gun shot wounds, stabbings, domestic violence and human trafficking.
Under the supervision of the Director of Clinical Services, the Clinical Coordinator will recruit, orient and train new TRC clinical staff to provide assertive outreach, clinical case management, and trauma-informed, evidence-based psychotherapy services to acute survivors of violent crime. The Clinical Coordinator will also develop policies and procedures to direct clinical practice, monitor client flow, and develop/maintain community partnerships. The Clinical Coordinator will also carry a caseload of individual clients and may facilitate group treatment as well. Since UCSF created this model there are now 10 TRCs across California. Ruby’s Place will open Southern Alameda County’s TRC this summer.

The TCC should have experience in providing therapy, crisis intervention, group counseling, general experience working with people who are survivors of violence, domestic violence and human trafficking, and providing support to a multidisciplinary team. In addition, the TCC will have an understanding of the dynamics of trauma caused from violent crimes and successful treatments for these traumas.
