Position Summary

The Department of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine is seeking a full-time, fixed-term position at the Clinical Instructor level to join the UNC Orange/Chatham Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Team located in Pittsboro, NC at the UNC Farm at Penny Lane and providing services in Orange and Chatham counties.

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) consists of professionals from multiple disciplines (including psychiatry, nursing, social work, and rehabilitation counseling) who use a team approach to meet the needs of individuals with severe and persistent mental illness in community-based settings. ACT works according to a recovery-based philosophy and provides person-centered services addressing the breadth of an individual's needs, helping him or her achieve their personal goals. ACT is generally the first responder and single point of responsibility for meeting the client's needs, which necessitates higher frequency and intensity of services and a low staff-to-client ratio. ACT services target individuals who have significant functional impairments, as well as complicating treatment factors including frequent psychiatric hospitalizations, homelessness or housing instability, criminal justice involvement, or other barriers to engagement in more traditional office-based services.

This position serves as the co-occurring disorders specialist on the team and should have knowledge and familiarity with best-practice therapeutic approaches for adults with primary psychotic disorders with co-occurring substance use disorders. This position is responsible for the coordination of ACT services for an assigned group of individuals served by the ACT Team, including clinical assessment, treatment planning, and implementation of evidence-based therapeutic interventions, such as integrated dual disorders treatment and will require knowledge of appropriate interventions including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing among others.

This position may assume some administrative responsibilities within the ACT Team.

This position may participate in the supervision and training of other ACT Team members, or interns/learners during rotations or placement with the ACT Team.

This position participates in the on-call rotation for the ACT Team and is expected to respond appropriately to calls within the required timeframe.

This position reports directly to the ACT Team Lead.

Minimum Education and Experience Requirements

Applicants must hold a master's degree in the human services field (Psychology, Social Work, Counseling, Rehabilitation Counseling, etc.). Applicants must hold or be pursuing licensure (full or provisional) or certification through the North Carolina Addiction Specialists Professional Practice board.

Effective interpersonal skills and competence to establish supportive, trusting relationships with persons with severe and persistent mental illnesses and respect for client rights and personal preferences in treatment are essential. Must have a strong commitment to the right and ability of each person with a severe and persistent mental illness to live in community settings; work in competitive employment; and have access to helpful, adequate, competent, and continuous support services.

Must have a valid NC driver's license.

Preferred Qualifications, Competencies, and Experience

Experience working in Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACTT) or other community-based or outreach models is preferred.
