Posted: 11/4/2013
Job Title: Psychologist for Early Psychosis Program
Employer: Harvard Medical School
Location: Boston, Massachusetts

The Prevention in Early Psychosis Program (PREP) at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center (MMHC) is recruiting a full-time psychologist to begin ASAP. Qualified applicants may be eligible for an academic appointment at the Harvard Medical School.

The PREP Program at MMHC has been providing cutting edge treatment to adolescents and young adults (age 16-30) with psychosis and their families for more than 10 years. Through the use of developmentally sensitive and recovery-focused individual, group, and family treatment, PREP works with adolescents and young adults experiencing psychosis to attenuate symptoms, preserve functioning, and counteract accompanying neuropsychological deficits, thus preventing long-term disability. PREP draws on the research and clinical literature and integrates strategies from both recovery-focused and CBT treatments to intervene early in the course of psychosis.

Serve as a member of a dynamic, multidisciplinary team by providing outpatient individual and group treatment to young adults and their families, conducting comprehensive diagnostic assessments/intake evaluations, supervising psychology trainees, and overseeing PREP program evaluation


1. Doctoral-level, licensed clinical psychologist.
2. At least 3 years of experience treating individuals with psychotic disorders as well as a demonstrated interest in this area
3. Competence in providing evidence-based treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive remediation, and family psychoeducation (multifamily or individual family).
4. Experience with neuropsychological and cognitive assessment, as well as structured clinical interviewing (e.g., SCID, BPRS).
5. Some background in clinical research design and methodology, statistics, and preparation of manuscripts is preferred.
6. Experience/interest in providing clinical supervision for graduate trainees is preferred.

Optional experiences for qualified applicants could include research projects, clinical service development, and teaching. For qualified applicants, there may be opportunities to take on additional responsibilities related to areas of interest and to play an important role in enhancing the program.


Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Interested applicants should send a CV, letter of interest, and 3 references to:

Thomas Monteleone, LICSW,
Clinical Team Leader PREP
