The San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health invites qualified professionals to apply for the position of Pre-Licensed Clinical Therapist* for the Community Crisis Response Team (CCRT). Pre-Licensed Clinical Therapists (Marriage and Family Therapy, Master of Social Work, and Professional Clinical Counselor) work in a variety of programs providing rehabilitative mental health/substance abuse services in community mental health clinics, field and institutional settings to children, adolescents, families, and older adults with severe mental or emotional disorders. Pre-Licensed Clinical Therapists may obtain supervised clinical experience. Applicants willing to work in forensics, criminal justice, or after-hours positions are encouraged to apply, as well as those seeking traditional schedules.

Pre-Licensed Clinical Therapists assigned to CCRT provide field-based crisis response 365 days per year from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and participate in the initial stages of disaster response, on behalf of the Department of Behavioral Health. Field teams provide one-on-one crisis intervention wherever the individual is located. CCRT staff do not carry caseloads and are offered 4/10 schedules. The teams collaborate closely with law enforcement, schools, other Behavioral Health programs, and individuals and families of all ages and demographics and respond to disaster and critical incidents that occur in the county, providing brief crisis intervention support and therapeutic tools.
