Licensed Professional Counselor at ASMSA
Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences, and the Arts (ASMSA)
The Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences, and the Arts (ASMSA), a campus of the University of Arkansas System, invites applications from highly qualified candidates for a ten-month, full-time opening beginning January 8, 2018. The counselor will play a critical role in addressing the social and emotional needs of gifted and talented students within a specialized educational community.
The counselor is responsible for a range of clinical responsibilities and projects. The primary focus of the work is treatment in the individual therapy modality, but other duties include crisis triage, group therapy, psycho-education, outreach, and assessment. Related case management duties include working with students, their families, off campus care providers, and on campus support services. In the event that a client of the clinic is referred for a level of care evaluation, this may include limited off-hours consultation with local crisis services and emergency departments. The counselor will have the opportunity to contribute to outreach and co-curricular education of the broader campus community as part of counseling services and wellness initiatives.
In terms of crisis services, the counselor is scheduled for urgent triage times across the course of the week, but also assists with unscheduled walk-in emergencies.
