Job Opening: 4SIGHT Behavior Analyst (1 opening)
When you see ‘behavior’, do you see function?
Do you find solutions in the context of the situation and value a team approach?
If you said yes to these questions, then this opportunity may be a great fit for you! We have been operating an innovative program called 4SIGHT since October 2019 that utilizes a licensed behavior analyst to provide in-depth assessment, complete behavior plan development and be directly involved with the implementation of plan objectives (doing direct services). Although behavior analysts have had a more traditional role in residential centers, we are utilizing behavior analysts in the community to both prevent or reduce the need for out-of-home care in a group home, institution, or incarceration by addressing the behavioral issues that are resulting in youth justice involvement.
We are expanding our program and looking to add an additional behavior analyst to work with our team. If you are interested in working with youth and families in the community and be part of the execution of a behavior plan, this is a perfect opportunity for you!
The role of the 4SIGHT behavior analyst is to, in collaboration with the county-assigned social worker, complete a comprehensive behavior assessment and identify the environmental and personal triggers impacting a youth's behavior. A behavior plan is developed with the youth and family to address the environmental domains of the youth, family, friends, and community (such as school). The behavior analyst will implement the plan with direct services as well as provide support to the wrap-around team for universal implementation. The goal is to work with the youth, family and others who are directly connected with the youth on developing specific skills for communication, self-awareness and awareness of others, alternative responses, and emotional regulation.
