Mobile Therapist- Bethlehem, PA

Are you looking to encourage growth and promote positive healthy lives? CONCERN is a non-profit human services organization dedicated to providing child welfare, juvenile justice, and behavioral health services to children and their families. Since 1978, CONCERN has brought hope, offered opportunity, and inspired change in the communities that we serve.

Concern is seeking Mobile Therapists for the following counties in Pennsylvania: Northampton and Lehigh. Reporting directly to the Clinical Supervisor, the Mobile Therapist (MT) provides a child or adolescent and his or her family with intensive therapeutic services in the home, school or elsewhere in the child’s community. Mobile Therapy sessions are prescribed and they follow a written treatment plan.

In some instances and depending on the regulations of the insurance company, behavioral health managed care organization (BHMCO), and Department of Human Services regulatory bulletins, the MT can meet with these individuals without the child present, as long as the service is indicated in the treatment plan, and is justified in the clinical course of treatment.
