The Trauma Section of the Child Study Center at the Yale School of Medicine seeks applications for a Clinician to join the leadership of an innovative clinical service at the Childhood Violent Trauma Clinic (CVTC). The successful candidate will take a senior position on the clinical team, providing leadership to the Child Development-Community Policing Program (CD-CP) and oversight of clinical services, including direct supervision of psychologists, social workers and child psychiatry fellows and junior faculty. The CVTC provides a number of services for children, adolescents and families exposed to violence and offers a range of treatments and interventions for those struggling with traumatic reactions and disorders.

CFTSI was developed at Yale to enhance communication about the impact of the PTE, enhance parental support of the affected child and to form the basis of a comprehensive evaluation and treatment recommendations for children impacted by traumatic and catastrophic events. The Childhood Violent Trauma Clinic also provides treatment for children with posttraumatic stress disorder following circumscribed traumatic events, and for children with other disorders and functional difficulties that result from chronic traumatization.
