Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) is recruiting Counselors (typically undergraduate students) for our Summer Treatment Program (STP). The STP is an award winning, evidence-based program for children ages 6-12 with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) developed by William Pelham, Ph.D. and colleagues. The STP has been listed in SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices.
Counselors will receive extensive clinical training and approximately 250 hours of face-to-face clinical experience working with children with ADHD and related behavioral, social, and academic difficulties. Counselors are assigned to groups of 10-15 children, with 4-6 counselors per group. Counselors implement behavior modification procedures during sports, social skills training, art, and academic activities. Counselors will provide feedback to children and parents and record behavioral data for children in their groups. They also receive daily performance feedback from experienced staff members who provide live supervision. COVID-19 vaccination is required of all Cincinnati Children’s employees, contractors, volunteers, vendors, and students who work onsite at any of the medical center’s facilities. Safety precautions followed by the hospital will be implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Counselors must be available to work full days from May 30th, 2023 through August 2nd, 2023. The beginning of employment will include a multi-day training session. Hired counselors will be responsible for reading the STP manual and memorizing some of the contents prior to beginning employment
Undergraduate and graduate level students interested in Clinical Psychology, School Psychology, Education, Social Work, Psychiatry, or Pediatrics are encouraged to apply. Experience gained at the STP may also be beneficial in preparation for careers in education, mental health, physical education, recreational therapy, behavior analysis, social work, and counseling.
*We will review applications as we receive them and recommend applying as soon as possible.
