Psychologist

Utah Behavior Services Salt Lake City, UT

  • Expired: over a month ago. Applications are no longer accepted.
Job Description

Can you turn a report around like nobody’s business? One that is reliable, concise, and written in a way that a parent can understand? Are you humble enough to know when you don’t have all of the answers, but confident enough to add value to the team by participating, collaborating, and providing helpful insight with other professionals? If you have answered yes to all these questions and love challenges, then your time will be well invested by reading forward.

We need a psychologist on our team who will step up to the challenge of putting the puzzle pieces together to uncover emerging sources of a child’s difficulty. Someone whose priority is bringing clarity for caregivers & treatment team alike to understand their child and how to help them become the best they can be.

If your main focus is having a full caseload then this position is not for you. This role’s primary responsibilities will include providing psycho-diagnostic evaluations investigating disorders commonly emerging in children, i.e. ADHD, ASD, RAD, DMDD, for Utah’s premier, integrated behavioral health care team, Utah Behavior Services.

P.S. A small caseload is available if that’s what fills your bucket- if not, no sweat!

 

What Winning Looks Like:

 

  • Producing a thorough, well-written, detailed report with descriptive diagnostic formulation, that you would be proud of sharing (with peers, in court, on the news, or with the APA ethics board).
  • Turning a high-quality report around within 14 days.
  • Contributing to the success & quality of the entire continuum of services, especially through continued growth and development of all Clinicians.
  • Writing a report that paints a clear picture of the whole child’s bio psycho-social considerations, not just checking the DSM boxes. (We know there's not real checkboxes)
  • Adding valuable contributions, insights, and ethical oversight, as a member of our peer review team.
  • Troubleshooting the hell out of the most intense behaviors with the team to keep kids in their least restrictive environment.
  • Providing evaluations in which you are asked if the child is on the Autism Spectrum, among other diagnoses.

 

Psychologist Requirements:

  • Experience working with and being comfortable around children and families (not just adults).
  • A Ph.D. or Psy.D. in clinical or school psychology from an APA accredited program.
  • Understanding of the diagnostic and treatment needs of children with developmental delays is essential.
  • Previous experience or a strong interest in working with children with autism spectrum disorders.
  • Experience assisting with relatively complex diagnostic situations involving multiple disorders.
  • Comfortable with the integration of psychiatric medication management for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, and mood disorders in individuals diagnosed with autism in all age groups.
