The Mental Health Center of North Iowa (MHCNI),a nearly 60 year old non-profit comprehensive community MHC and a recognized pioneer in providing trauma-focused clinical services, is accepting applications for a postdoctoral psychology training position with a concentration in child clinical services.

The postdoc training will provide numerous opportunities for competency development in both psychotherapy and psycho-diagnostic assessment. The majority of patients are self-referred though frequent assessment and treatment referrals come from child welfare, juvenile court, schools, and pediatricians, in addition to a number of agencies serving adults.

The postdoc training includes an opportunity to play an integral part in the inception and ongoing operation of a multidisciplinary early childhood (ages 2-8) emotional development team, an initiative stemming from the Center’s established and always evolving “developmental trauma” approach to diagnosis and intervention. The team will collaborate with other child service providers in addressing both the specific needs of a child, as well as helping build a solid integrated network of comprehensive care for all area children.
