UCLA TIES for Families is accepting applications for 2 Clinical Child Psychology Postdoctoral Fellows to begin September 2012.
The mission of UCLA TIES for Families is to improve outcomes for foster children with special needs who are or will be in adoptive placement. Clinicians provide treatment and comprehensive psychological evaluations for children and their resource/adoptive families within an interdisciplinary team while consulting with child welfare workers. There are also opportunities to engage in research as well as to supervise psychology externs.
Postdoctoral fellows provide the following services to children and families:
• Individual and family treatment utilizing evidence-based approaches
• Group therapy, aimed at fostering attachment and better supporting both children and families adjusting to the specific circumstances of adoptive placement.
• Involvement in the Infant Mental Health program, including developmental assessments, home visiting, and parent-infant support groups
• Participation in clinical trial of ADAPT, a manualized adoption-specific intervention for older children being adopted from foster care and their parents
