JBT seeks a skilled Multicultural Specialist/Mental Health Clinician to join our behavioral healthcare team. The successful candidate will be an experienced generalist psychologist or counselor with demonstrated multicultural competence and established clinical, outreach and training experience serving historically marginalized and underrepresented populations. The primary role of this position is to provide culturally responsive therapy for OHSU\u2019s students and post-doctoral scholars. Clinical responsibilities will involve providing a range of psychological services to a diverse student population, with a particular focus on serving our underrepresented students and students of color. This includes the ability to assess and treat psychological distress in order to support academic performance and augment overall well-being of our students and post-docs through culturally responsive outreach programming. The specific duties of this position include culturally responsive psychological diagnostic evaluation, crisis intervention, and psychological counseling using individual, couple and group methods. JBT emphasizes short-term duration of counseling whenever possible to facilitate equitable access to services by all OHSU students and post-docs. The professional hired for this position will serve as part of a unified mental health team consisting of multidisciplinary mental health professionals (e.g. psychologists, psychiatrists) and primary care providers (e.g. physicians, nurse practitioners, acupuncturists, massage therapists, medical assistants). This position is under the direct supervision of the Behavioral Health Director of the JBT Health & Wellness Center. The clinician will work with others on the team to enhance access for patients, to ensure efficient use of clinic resources, to make appropriate use of external referrals, and to promote the overall mission, goals and objectives of JBT. The clinician will work with other members of the team to provide continuity of care as needed. At the request of the Behavioral Health Director, the clinician may serve as liaison to other OHSU programs coordinating with JBT. This is a fast-paced clinic, and the hired clinician will be expected to independently and efficiently manage a large and complex caseload of clients.
