Post-Doctoral Associate [PrairieCare]
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
University of Minnesota
The ideal candidate will have a PhD or PsyD in clinical, school, or counseling psychology from an APA-accredited program, will have completed an APA-accredited clinical child or pediatric psychology internship, and will have experience in child-focused intervention programming and research. The fellow will need a reliable car to travel between different PrairieCare sites and the University of Minnesota.
The fellow will provide a wide variety of psychological services to children, adolescents, and their families at PrairieCare (.75 effort). Such services may include diagnostic evaluations, group therapy, individual therapy, and parent/family skills training, as well as consultation with staff on behavior management. The fellow will work with children and parents within a specialized intensive outpatient model of services for children with ADHD/ODD known as the Behavior Development Program. The fellow will also assist in the expansion of evidence-based programs for other specialty populations (e.g., CBT for depressed adolescents). Clinical supervision will be provided by Dr. Michael Bloomquist and other licensed psychologists at PrairieCare. The fellow will work towards licensure as a clinical psychologist.
There will be opportunity for the fellow to participate in clinical research and educational opportunities (.25 effort). A research agenda is evolving through a partnership between the University of Minnesota and PrairieCare that seeks to personalize dose and content of evidence-based programs based on proximal response and neurobehavioral tailoring variables. The post doctoral fellow will have opportunity for involvement in a representative research project underway to evaluate the Behavior Development Program along with additional programs being created at PrairieCare. This can include participation in research protocol development and grant writing. Finally, the fellow will have access to training opportunities within the Center for Personalized Prevention Research in Children's Mental Health (http://www.med.umn.edu/psychiatry/research/cppr/), courses provided through Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (i.e., CAPy 5000 level courses), and select courses offered by other academic departments at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Bloomquist will consult with the fellow on research and training activities.
This post doctoral fellowship is housed within the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota and emphasizes clinical child psychology practice and program consultation provided through PrairieCare and PrairieCare Medical Group (http://www.prairie-care.com/). PrairieCare operates several sites across the Twin Cities metropolitan area and delivers a broad continuum of mental health services to thousands of children and adolescents each year in inpatient, partial hospital, intensive outpatient, and outpatient settings.
