Clinical Psychologist, Neuropsychologist and Forensic Psychologist positions
Department of State Hospitals-Coalinga
Immediate Clinical Psychologist, Neuropsychologist and Forensic Psychologist positions (civil service or contract) are available at the Department of State Hospitals- Coalinga. The Department of State Hospitals- Coalinga is a maximum security facility specializing in the assessment and treatment of forensic patients. The population primarily consists of Sexually Violent Predators, but the facility also houses Mentally Disorder Offenders and Mentally Ill Prisoners.
Clinical Psychologists provide a variety of services including facilitating sex offender psychotherapy groups, conducting violence risk assessment, administering cognitive and diagnostic tests, developing treatment plans, leading treatment team conferences, training clinical and level of care staff, as well as brief individual therapy. Clinical Psychologists are part of a multidisciplinary treatment team, including psychiatry, social work, rehabilitation therapy, nursing, and psychiatric technicians. Requirements for licensed and unlicensed applicants include: 1) internship or postdoctoral fellowship, 2) minimum six months experience working with patients with psychiatric disorders.
Neuropsychologists conduct a full range of neuropsychological assessment and provide services such as neuropsychological reports, diagnostic clarification, treatment recommendations, establish baseline measures for monitoring progressive cerebral diseases, assist with integration of neuropsychological findings into therapeutic approaches, and work with a multidisciplinary team of health care providers. The incumbent may also be asked to facilitate cognitive remediation groups. Preferred applicants will have a doctoral degree in psychology, two year post-doctoral fellowship in neuropsychology, board certified (or eligible) in clinical neuropsychology, and experience with forensic populations.
Forensic Psychologists in the CSH Forensics Department produce over 400 Sexual Violent Predator annual reports and over 100 Mentally Disordered Offender reports a year for the courts, and we work separately from those treating patients. These positions are a good fit for fully licensed midcareer Psychologists who write well and enjoy the forensic experience of preparing and sometimes defending their reports in court. CSH provides training in specific aspects of SVP and MDO law in California and learning to do these evaluations is an ongoing process for all CSH forensic evaluators. Those interested with specific questions can call Peter Lavalle, M.D., at 559-935 6865 or email Peter.Lavalle@csh.dsh.ca.gov for more information.
The salary is very competitive and commensurate with level of experience. If interested, submit a completed Standard State application form 678, available at www.jobs.ca.gov, under 'My Profile'.
