ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR

March 2019

The Kedzie Center seeks an experienced Licensed Clinician with clinical supervision and administrative experience to assist in the direction of clinical services and clinical training. The Center offers comprehensive mental health services, education and outreach to those in need on the northwest side of Chicago, regardless of the ability to pay. The Kedzie Center is the first of its kind in Chicago, created and funded by a community self-taxation referendum in response to locally identified needs.

We seek a clinician skilled in reflective supervision from an integrated psychodynamic and systems perspective who can oversee a graduate-level training program and clinical practices that bring together a dedication to community context and engagement with a psychodynamic perspective at all levels of intervention. This individual must be comfortable incorporating a variety of clinical interventions and approaches within a multidisciplinary setting to address the needs of a diverse population. We are looking for someone who can function simultaneously as a leader in clinical/training innovation and as a true team player. This position affords a unique opportunity to play a significant role in transforming the landscape of public mental health care in Chicago.

Duties of the position include overseeing clinical service provision, quality assurance, program evaluation as well as supporting clinical staff and trainees and the organizational culture. The Associate Director reports to the Executive Director, working closely with her to develop, implement and evaluate clinical programs, policies and procedures and to oversee supervision of clinicians. The Associate Director also works with the Executive Director to develop the clinical training program, and is responsible for overseeing and coordinating clinical training, including selection of trainees, use of adjunct supervisory resources, and maintaining relationships with the home programs of trainees. The Associate Director may provide some direct individual, group and family treatment services as needed, particularly in a training or co-facilitation role.

Requirements:  A Master’s degree in social work, marriage and family therapy, or counseling and licensure in Illinois as an LCSW, MFT or LCPC. Experience with program development, community mental health, Medicaid, program accreditation and fluency in languages other than English are pluses. Salary is commensurate with experience. To apply, send a CV, three letters of reference and a letter outlining your supervisory approach, capabilities and interest in the position, to Dr. Angela Sedeño at asedeno@thekedziecenter.org. The Kedzie Center is an equal opportunity employer.
