Required: Ph.D. or Psy.D. degree from an APA-approved psychology program; eligible for psychology license or residency in Oregon; and, some experience conducting psychological testing and assessment with children and adolescents.

The full-time, salaried position of Psychologist/Psychologist Resident at Parry Center for Children is responsible for the provision of direct psychological assessment of children and adolescents, interaction with families and community teams, and clinical consultation to programs within the agency. Clients are referred from Trillium programs including inpatient, subacute and residential, day treatment/partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and school-based outpatient programs. Referral questions may include cognitive, developmental, autism, diagnostic, personality, and forensic assessment. The ideal candidate can produce high-quality psychological evaluations that respond to referring clinicians’ questions in practical and useful ways to help clients succeed in their goals; can provide feedback to clients, their guardians and other community members that is clear, helpful and accurate; whose clinical work is consistent with the science and ethics of psychology as well as providing value to the agency, our clients, and community partners. An ideal candidate also demonstrates cultural and trauma-informed competence, including the ability to understand assessment results, and the limits of assessment, in a culturally responsive manner; communicates with and makes recommendations to clinicians, families, and clients in a way that is sensitive to cultural contexts and to trauma; seeks ongoing knowledge and skills for cultural responsiveness and culturally appropriate resources; and maintains resilience and self-care in work with populations and individuals who have experienced trauma. An interest in forensic evaluations with youth who are being evaluated for competency in an adjudicative context is a plus, and support and supervision for forensic certification will be provided (salary increase upon forensic certification). While testing and assessment are the primary focus, other opportunities may include providing clinical supervision, training, individual/group/family therapy, crisis intervention, and contributing to the agency’s diversity, equity, and trauma-informed initiatives.

Licensed psychologist operates independently with a high degree of flexibility and self-management, but also within the strong support of a collegial, friendly and fun team environment. Employee is responsible for time management and accurate documentation, with a balanced focus on billable services and clinical needs. Psychologist resident operates semi-independently, with flexible and generous supervision to meet licensure requirements and support professional development.
