POETIC is seeking a licensed bilingual therapist with experience working with youth who have experienced complex trauma. The ideal candidate will have experience implementing evidence-based interventions such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. Any candidate we consider must embody POETIC’s 11 Core Values and possess a passion for professional growth.
POETIC Core Values:
Trauma-focused: We all have a history of boundaries being crossed without our permission or understanding. We are not our past but are deliberate and mindful of our present and future.
Youth First: We strive to always act for the greater good of POETIC girls, not our self-interest.
Evidence-Based: We are rooted and guided in what is effective, yet agile enough to respond to change.
Social Justice and Culturally Responsive: We believe in equity, we are not color-blind and we challenge the assumption of sameness.
Non-Judgmental: Daily, we practice a non-judgmental stance to ourselves and others. We strive to view ourselves and others within a lens of compassion believing we are all doing the best we can – striving for a little better each day.
Honesty and Integrity: We extend truth, even despite the consequences, as we value transparency and humility.
Self-Awareness: We are committed to the assessment of our personal strengths and areas of growth. With humility and openness to learning, we will actively pursue opportunities and conversations that challenge us.
Balance: Valuable output is the greatest measure, not hours put in. Anyone can keep busy, but that does not equate to productivity.
Assume Good Intent: Extend grace and understanding to fellow POETIC team members rather than allowing assumptions to drive reaction and behavior.
Teamwork: We are stronger together – ask and offer help.
Amenable to Supervision and Professional Curiosity: With humility and an openness to learning, take the initiative to grow in your role and your profession.
