Clinical Director

Justice Resource Institute/Trauma Center - Brookline, MA3.7

Full-timeEstimated: $62,000 - $83,000 a year

The Trauma Center at Justice Resource Institute (JRI) is dedicated to identifying and addressing the most confounding social challenges that face individuals, families, and communities within our educational and human services systems.

The Trauma Center at JRI is a nationally renowned 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to help individuals, families and communities that have been impacted by trauma and adversity to re-establish a sense of safety and predictability in the world. The Trauma Center provides state-of-the-art therapeutic care through our community based outpatient clinic, conducts cutting edge research focused on delineating the impact of trauma and adversity on human development and evaluating innovative interventions for traumatic stress, and educates professionals through local and national training initiatives. While the Trauma Center addresses the full range of traumatic events, from accidents and disaster response to treatment of child abuse and domestic violence, the Center specializes in the complex behavioral and psychiatric response to exposure to chronic and repeated interpersonal victimization (e.g., abuse, assault, community violence) often occurring in families compromised by socioeconomic adversity, community violence, criminal activity, severe and persistent mental illness, and substance abuse.

We seek a Clinical Director who has a demonstrated commitment to social justice, and who will provide vision and leadership in the expansion of both outpatient clinical services and innovative community-based partnerships. We seek to maintain and continue to build a collaborative environment that fosters participation of all members of our community and that values the perspectives of professionals from multiple disciplines.
