Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist
The Evidence Based Treatment Centers of Seattle (EBTCS) is looking for a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist to join our team. This position is unique in that it combines some of the flexibility of private practice, with the benefits of having an employed position in a large group of skilled psychiatrists and psychologists dedicated to providing high-quality team-based care, as well as to practice-based research and training.
EBTCS provides care to children, adolescents, and adults needing specialty treatment in one of three areas: Anxiety Disorders, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Eating Disorders. We provide care at both the Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient levels of treatment. Psychiatrists on our teams work closely with psychologists to provide the medication management portion of team-based care. Depending on hours worked and interests, psychiatrists may also treat patients from the larger community or maintain a small therapy practice themselves.
Good candidates will have training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and will also be willing to see adult patients as part of their practice. Great candidates will have an interest in behaviorism and in working with psychologists providing behavioral therapies including, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Family-Based Treatment for Eating Disorders. Psychiatrists need not be experts in the therapies themselves, but awareness and training in these treatments or willingness to learn more about them from psychologist colleagues greatly improves the quality of our team-based care. Psychiatrists in our center typically enjoy both prescribing medication and de-prescribing unhelpful medications, have an interest in how medication use can support or hinder behavioral treatments, and have a strong sense of what sorts of health problems are most likely to benefit from medication, behavioral treatments, or both.
