Location: Waterbury
Posted on: August 7, 2022

Job Description:

Job Description BackgroundThe Clinician partners with a Care Coordinator to engage families who are referred to the Child First home-based intervention. Child First's primary goal is to strengthen the caregiver-child relationship to serve as a protective buffer to unavoidable stress and directly facilitate the child's emotional, language, and cognitive growth. The Clinician uses trauma-informed CPP, a relationship-based, dyadic, parent-child treatment model, which focuses on the primary attachment relationships of the young child, (0-5 years of age). The Clinician engages with the caregiver in a supportive, reflective, and exploratory manner, fostering a protective, nurturing, and the responsive parent-child relationship. The Clinician's therapeutic intervention focuses on: (1) helping caregivers understand typical developmental challenges and expectations; 2) increasing caregivers' ability to reflect on the meaning and feelings motivating a child's behavior; 3) supporting caregivers' problem solving; 4) helping caregivers understand the psychodynamic relationship between parental feelings, history, and the caregiver response to the child. The Clinician also provides consultation to teachers in early care and education settings, as needed. Requirements & Qualifications
