MST Family Therapist – Broadmeadows
Broadmeadows, VIC – This program has been funded as a pilot by the Department of Health and Human Services to test if intensive family support linked to clinical therapeutic service can reduce the demand for residential care services for some of the most complex children and young people in Victoria. The trial will have two streams: Reunification stream working with children/young people in residential care to reunify them with their families and Placement Prevention stream that supports families to prevent children/young people entering Out of Home Care. The target group for this pilot is young people aged 10-15 years, currently in residential care or at risk of out-of-home placement due to serious behavioural problems and co-occurring mental health symptoms and substance use/abuse. The therapist role is at the core of the clinical intervention. Each therapist has a case load of 4 families, and the therapeutic intervention lasts for 4-7 months, averaging 8 over the course of the pilot. Caseload si… – Permanent – Full-timeApply for this job.
