Subject: Laboratory Coordinator Position for Recent Graduate!

The grant gods have smiled upon me and I am looking for a bright, eager, talented, organized, well-spoken individual
to serve as my laboratory coordinator starting this June and for the next two or three years. I would like to conduct interviews in early May. A new college graduate looking for additional research experience before going on
to graduate school would be perfect. My laboratory coordinators have gone on to graduate school at wonderful
places.

The focus of my lab is how children learn language. We bring in parents and children anywhere between the ages of 4 months and 5 years and sometimes test adults too. Since we have many projects going on at the same time, I need someone who can function at a high level with many balls in the air.

Responsibilities include: data collection and analysis, study design, supervising research assistants, and interacting with participants and their parents. The job offers full benefits and an excellent working environment since I treat my laboratory coordinators more as colleagues than employees. If you are interested or know someone who is, please contact me at Roberta@udel.edu.
Thanks!

Hi everyone,

The MacArthur Mental Health Court Project at the Institute on community Integration is seeking to hire additional interviewers/field workers for our project. The project is being implemented at the Hennepin County Public Safety Facility (a.k.a. the jail) and we are one of four pilot sites across the country. The goal of the study is to determine whether or not mental health court makes a difference in the long term outcomes of individuals who are arrested, determined to have a mental health disorder, and referred to Mental Health Court for wrap around services as compared to those who are arrested, have a mental health disorder, but are never referred to Mental Health Court and are processed through the regular jail system. Individuals who have committed violent crimes are not allowed to be in the study.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain high level interviewing skills, to learn how to administer a complicated interview instrument, and to work with individuals with mental illness. One perk of the position is that you can set your own schedule and do interviews when it is convenient for you, including nights and weekends.

Characteristics and skills we are looking for include:

· Background in psychology, social work, or a related field of study
· Willingness to spend time at the Hennepin County jail
· Willingness to do interviews in a correctional setting with inmates
· Ability to organize and manage assignments and to complete assignments by the deadline
· Willingness to work with individuals with mental health conditions
· Own transportation to get to the jail or community locations

Those hired would be contracted employees of Policy Research Associates of Delmar, New York, which is the organization administering this project at the four pilot sites.

Here is a description of the project and interviewer responsibilities:

Statement of Work: Research Field Worker

The following scope of work is for the MacArthur Mental Health Court study. The initial funding period is from June 1, 2006 until December 2007..

The subcontractor will perform the following data collection and locating activities, in accordance with procedures and instruments provided by PRA:

Interviewer Training

Attend the two-day Research Field Worker training
Read reference materials and other training materials
Complete an on-line tutorial
Conduct a taped practice interview for PRA review
Obtain jail clearance and participate in tours of the Hennepin County jail
Attend and observe the Mental Health Court
Attend training session at the Hennepin County workhouse if needed

Baseline Participant Interviewing

Screen and recruit people in each of the MHC (N=140) and TAU/jail (N=140) samples for the study.
Recruitment may involve approaching MHC clients in court, in the HC Jail, or at the HC Workhouse; making phone calls and/or visiting the residences of potential participants in the community (including shelters).
Ensure subjects meet required demographic and diagnosis guidelines, as well as inclusion criteria.
Attend the Mental Health Court, which is held daily Monday-Friday at 9 AM, on an as-needed basis or according to a schedule that will be developed to recruit and conduct or schedule interviews.
Go to the Hennepin County Jail or Workhouse on an as needed basis or according to a schedule that will be developed to recruit and conduct interviews with participants.
Conduct baseline in-person interviews of approximately 1 ½ hours in length with eligible and willing subjects.
Go the Research Field Office as often as needed to complete and submit interviews and associated paperwork.

Follow-Up Interviewing

Attempt to locate all participants (N=280) for follow-up interviews at 6 months after their baseline interview.
Conduct follow-up interviews (preferably in-person) with all available participants.

Locating Efforts

Locating for Baseline and Follow-Up Interviews includes, but it is not limited to the following:
Calling case managers, shelters, collaterals, and all other persons and agencies who may know the whereabouts of the participant
Checking websites, such as the Hennepin daily jail roster and the Hennepin County MHC docket on a daily basis
Using the locater sheet to find the addresses where participants may be staying and contacting those listed or going to the site listed to find the participant
Sending out letters to known addresses, the Social Security Administration, etc.

Other Interviewer Tasks

Code and clean data collection instruments including responding to subsequent coding questions from PRA.
Submit interview data to site coordinators/site director within one week of interview.
Participate in data collection at 12 and 24 months after the baseline interview with MH service agencies (for hospitalization and treatment information) and CJ agencies (for arrest and jail information) on all 280 participants.
Communicate completion status to project coordinator on a weekly basis.

We are tentatively scheduling a required interviewer training for those hired on April 2-3rd. Those interested should contact me at 625-3863 or huntx010@umn.edu

Subject: UCS post doc

University of Southern California Los Angeles, California
* *
The University of Southern California (USC) is an urban private research
university located near downtown Los Angeles. USC has a population of
32,000 students, which includes undergraduate, graduate and professional
degree students. USC has one of the largest international student
populations in the United States.

The training of Postdoctoral Fellows at USC's Student Counseling
Services
and Disability Services and Programs is an endeavor that is fully
supported
by our staff. The staff trains mental health professionals at different
developmental levels (such as Practicum Counselors, Social Work Interns,
Psychological Interns and Postdoctoral Fellows). Additionally, the USC
Student Counseling Services has an APA accredited predoctoral internship
program.

As an APPIC member postdoctoral training program, our primary goal and
purpose is to provide opportunities, structure and support that will
help
develop clinically competent, diversity and culturally sensitive and
highly
ethical Postdoctoral Fellows as they prepare for licensure and for an
entry
level psychologist position. Our program offers a variety of clinical,
supervisory, consultative and administrative experiences that are
intended
to provide a clear picture of what it is like to work as a staff
psychologist both at a university counseling center and a disability
services program. We believe the unique combination of college mental
health services and disability services provides a niche as our
profession
of psychology has begun to address these issues more in recent years
since
the implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The central training goal of the program is that the Postdoctoral
Fellows
complete their fellowship with advanced knowledge, confidence, and
competence in the following areas of clinical practice:

. short term therapy

. group counseling

. awareness and appreciation of human diversity, including
diversity
related to disability issues

. professional ethics and decision making

. clinical assessment, including psychological assessment of
learning disabilities and ADHD

. crisis intervention

. clinical supervision

. outreach and consultation

Licensing Requirements:

Satisfactory completion of the postdoctoral training program meets
postdoctoral supervised practice requirements for licensure in the State
of
California.

The training methods include the following:

1. *Direct Service*: individual, couples and

group counseling; crisis intervention;

2. *Supervision*: individual supervision (4 hours a week) and
supervision of groups and supervision of supervision (1 hour a week) ;

3. *Clinical conferences*: intake conferences and diversity case
conferences;

4. *Training seminars*: Disability assistance seminars,
professional
development series in crisis intervention, outreach and consultation,
psychiatric consultation, and outside speaker series in addition to a
choice
of four interns' seminars (at least 2 seminar hours weekly);

5. *Psychoeducational assessment*: learning disabilities and
ADHD.

6. *Outreach and consultation*: working with campus departments,
including faculty, staff, and student groups.

The USC Community:

The postdoctoral program's training resources are drawn from the Student
Counseling Services and Disability Services and Programs. About 1,200
students each year utilize the Student Counseling Services for
counseling
and psychotherapy. Another 2,200 students, faculty and staff are served
via
outreach and consultation. About 1,500 students utilize the Center for
Academic Support-Disability Services and Programs for academic
assistance
and accommodations.

Training Staff and Office Location:

The training staff at the Student Counseling Services includes eight (8)
psychologists, one (1) psychiatrist and one (1) clinical social worker.
The
training staff at the Center for Academic Support-Disability Services
and
Programs includes two (2) psychologists and one (1) disability education
specialist.

Our Postdoctoral Fellow provides services and receives training at both
Centers. The Postdoctoral Fellow's office is located at the Center for
Academic Support-Disability Services and Programs. The Fellow is
supervised
primarily by the two supervisors listed in this brochure.

Evaluation of Postdoctoral Fellow:

The Fellow is evaluated formally twice a year. Senior staff members
meet
for supervision of supervision on a weekly basis. The training
coordinators
ask for feedback from senior staff members regarding their observation
of
clinical services and professional and ethical developments of the
Fellow.

Due Process and Grievance Procedure:

In the event of grievances during the training year, the training
program
has a Due Process and Grievance Procedure.

Application Requirements:

Applicants for the postdoctoral fellowship program must have completed
all
requirements for the doctoral degree in psychology from a regionally
accredited institution of higher education, including an APA- or
CPA-accredited internship or an internship meeting APPIC standards
before
beginning their postdoctoral training.

The postdoctoral fellowship is a one-year full-time (11 months)
position. It
begins August 1, 2007 and ends June 30, 2008. The salary, including
University benefits, is $21,600. Additional information about the

Date: January 18, 2007
To: Graduate Students
From: Peter Ralston, Crick Social Development Lab Coordinator
Re: Interview help wanted

The Crick Social Development Lab is looking for up to 20 individuals to work during the spring semester on our study of relational and physical aggression in early childhood and kindergarten. We need to interview approximately 150 kindergarten age children at their homes throughout the metro area. Our primary interview assessment is the WPPSI – III (Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence - III), although there are several smaller questionnaires bundled into the interview. Having experience with the WIPPSI is a definite plus but not a requirement.

We anticipate most interviews will be on weeknights or weekends and you will choose which ones fit into your schedule and availability.

As an interviewer you will be paid $15.50 an hour. Unfortunately, this position does not carry any benefits but it is a great way to earn some extra cash. There are certain restrictions on the number of hours you can work that depend on your other appointments here at the U.

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity please do not hesitate to contact me either via email at ralst003@umn.edu or phone at 612-625-6874.

Thank you.

Hello All:

I just learned that the Provost’s office has approved funds for a visiting position here in our department next year (Start: August 2006) for someone who “meets our diversity needs.? If you know of any recent graduates (or possibly ABD students) who might be interested in a visiting position here, please let me know ASAP. We have a wonderfully supportive counseling psychology program in a very supportive psychology department. I don’t know all the details of the visiting position, but I suspect the teaching load would be 2:2, the salary will be more than competitive (preliminary figures are 10-20% higher than our typical salary for an incoming tenure track assistant prof position), and there would be support for working toward licensure in Texas. The university is very committed to meeting our diversity needs and this visiting position is a high priority so support will be outstanding. There is also a good chance this position could turn into a tenure track line. Please let me know ASAP if you have anyone that may be interested. -- Bob

Justice System Responses to Intimate Partner Violence in Asian Communities

Proposal submitted to the National Institute of Justice
by the University of Michigan, School of Social Work
and the Asian & Pacific Islander Institute on Domestic Violence
April 18, 2005

Abstract
This joint proposal of the University of Michigan, School of Social Work and the Asian & Pacific Islander Institute on Domestic Violence seeks to obtain empirical data to help strengthen the response of the criminal justice system (CJS) to intimate partner violence (IPV) in Asian communities. Through face-to-face semi-structured interviews with Asian battered women, we will investigate (1) the types and lifecourse trajectories of IPV experienced, (2) longitudinal trajectories of contacts with the CJS, (3) factors associated with help-seeking, (4) responses of CJS programs such as police, prosecution, and courts, and (5) the relationship between contacts with CJS and women’s safety/well-being over time.
With reported IPV prevalence rates of 41-60%, an over-representation in IPV-related homicide statistics, different manifestations of IPV (such as abuse by male and female in-laws), and barriers to help-seeking related to socio-cultural factors, linguistic needs, and/or immigrant status, Asian battered women’s experiences require urgent study. Furthermore, little is known about their contacts with the CJS. By researching the unique needs of Asian battered women, we will make policy and practice recommendations about how different and/or additional interventions by the CJS will increase its effectiveness and promote victim safety.
Respondents will be 320 women of Filipina, Indian and Pakistani descent, aged 18 and above, who have experienced IPV. They will be recruited from CJS and non-CJS IPV programs, as well as through written and verbal announcements at community organizations/events and advertisements placed in ethnic media outlets. We will collect data on the lifecourse experiences of IPV and contact with the CJS through semi-structured interviews using the Life History Calendar (LHC) method, an instrument that increases respondent recall for more accurate collection of lifecourse data. Using longitudinal data analysis techniques (e.g., multi-level and growth mixtures modeling), we will examine the lifecourse trajectory of IPV, contact with the CJS, responses of the CJS, women’s safety and wellbeing, and the interrelationships of these factors over time.
Expected products from the study include interim and final reports to the NIJ, recommendations and training materials for CJS programs regarding socio-culturally competent practice with Asian battered women, scholarly presentations and/or journal articles, and an electronic data file to be archived under the NIJ’s Data Resource Program. By identifying factors that promote and hinder effective interventions in Asian communities, the findings will inform public policy and improve the degree to which the CJS meets the complex needs of diverse Asian battered women.

Justice System Responses to Intimate Partner Violence in Asian Communities

Proposal submitted to the National Institute of Justice
by the University of Michigan, School of Social Work
and the Asian & Pacific Islander Institute on Domestic Violence
April 18, 2005

Abstract
This joint proposal of the University of Michigan, School of Social Work and the Asian & Pacific Islander Institute on Domestic Violence seeks to obtain empirical data to help strengthen the response of the criminal justice system (CJS) to intimate partner violence (IPV) in Asian communities. Through face-to-face semi-structured interviews with Asian battered women, we will investigate (1) the types and lifecourse trajectories of IPV experienced, (2) longitudinal trajectories of contacts with the CJS, (3) factors associated with help-seeking, (4) responses of CJS programs such as police, prosecution, and courts, and (5) the relationship between contacts with CJS and women’s safety/well-being over time.
With reported IPV prevalence rates of 41-60%, an over-representation in IPV-related homicide statistics, different manifestations of IPV (such as abuse by male and female in-laws), and barriers to help-seeking related to socio-cultural factors, linguistic needs, and/or immigrant status, Asian battered women’s experiences require urgent study. Furthermore, little is known about their contacts with the CJS. By researching the unique needs of Asian battered women, we will make policy and practice recommendations about how different and/or additional interventions by the CJS will increase its effectiveness and promote victim safety.
Respondents will be 320 women of Filipina, Indian and Pakistani descent, aged 18 and above, who have experienced IPV. They will be recruited from CJS and non-CJS IPV programs, as well as through written and verbal announcements at community organizations/events and advertisements placed in ethnic media outlets. We will collect data on the lifecourse experiences of IPV and contact with the CJS through semi-structured interviews using the Life History Calendar (LHC) method, an instrument that increases respondent recall for more accurate collection of lifecourse data. Using longitudinal data analysis techniques (e.g., multi-level and growth mixtures modeling), we will examine the lifecourse trajectory of IPV, contact with the CJS, responses of the CJS, women’s safety and wellbeing, and the interrelationships of these factors over time.
Expected products from the study include interim and final reports to the NIJ, recommendations and training materials for CJS programs regarding socio-culturally competent practice with Asian battered women, scholarly presentations and/or journal articles, and an electronic data file to be archived under the NIJ’s Data Resource Program. By identifying factors that promote and hinder effective interventions in Asian communities, the findings will inform public policy and improve the degree to which the CJS meets the complex needs of diverse Asian battered women.
