Dr. Lisa Baron, Project Director, AIP Center for Trauma Care in Schools. [email protected]

AIP’s Center for Trauma Care in Schools (CTCS) is launching a five year federally-funded project to assist school districts throughout Massachusetts and in neighboring states to increase their overall mental health supports with a special focus on students with traumatic stress. Partners in this project include the National Center for School Mental Health at the University of Maryland – Baltimore (NCSMH), and the Lurie Children’s Center in Chicago. 

AIP is a nonprofit children’s mental health agency established in 1995. We are seeking a Master’s or Doctoral level clinician to provide consultation, training, and program assessment to multiple schools seeking to improve the delivery of mental health services to students across all tiers. Some direct clinical service in the form of co-leading evidence-based trauma treatment groups will be required as part of the training component of the position. The clinician will be expected to provide training in the use of evidence-based approaches to school mental health and school climate to teachers, administrators, parent groups, and school-based clinicians.  

A unique feature of this project includes a focus on workforce development for incoming mental health professionals seeking to work in schools. This will be an expansion of AIP’s current Trauma-focused Intern Training program (T-FIT). The clinician will participate in the creation of 12 hours of curriculum-based, trauma-informed training videos to be used in graduate programs in social work, counseling, and school psychology. There will also be an ongoing series of live webinars for school professionals. These training materials will be available online and disseminated nationally.
