About Marathon Health
We are an independent not-for-profit that delivers better healthcare throughout regional NSW. We recently won the 2017 Regional Business of the Year and Employer of Choice categories at the Western NSW Business Chamber Awards.
About the Role
If you are passionate about keeping families together, we invite you to apply for this unique opportunity to implement a new evidence-based intervention program. The multi-systemic therapy for child abuse and neglect (MST-CAN) model aims to reduce entries into out-of-home care, increase exits from out-of-home care, and immediately respond to trauma, substance misuse and other underlying causes of child abuse and neglect. You will be part of professional team that will be amongst the first in NSW to implement the MST-CAN model.
MST-CAN offers skilled professionals the chance to work intensively as a team with a small group of families, allowing focused, high quality work with high levels of clinical support.
As a MST-CAN Therapist your duties will include assessment, treatment, documentation and stakeholder collaboration. You will work a rotating 24/7 roster and must be flexible to work with the families' availability. A vehicle will be supplied for work purposes.
You will receive extensive training in Child and Adult trauma therapy, Adolescent and Adult Substance use treatment, and other MST-CAN components. Quarterly professional development booster sessions are also offered, which further enhance skills and knowledge specific to the MST CAN team's needs.
Key Qualifications and Experience
This role would suit an experienced Clinical or Registered Psychologist with demonstrated relevant experience (e.g., in cognitive-behavioural therapy, individual therapy, pragmatic family therapy, trauma treatment and behaviourally-based approaches).
Benefits and Culture
We pride ourselves on being an employer of choice. We offer rewarding work in a supportive environment. Our staff have access to generous employment conditions including 5 weeks annual leave per annum and a professional development allowance (in addition to the MST-CAN training).
An attractive salary package will be offered, with the potential to earn a retention bonus. Reasonable relocation expenses will be reimbursed to eligible candidates. You will also be able to access salary packaging, meaning more money in your pocket.
