Psychology Training & Employment:
Seeking those interested in a career in behavioral psychology
JBI is looking for individuals that have an innate passion and curiosity for psychology (specifically Behavior Analysis).
Behavioural psychology is primarily concerned with habit formation in individuals. Our work includes the analysis and alteration of undesirable behavior patterns in clients. Behavior Analysis is one of the most scientifically rooted fields within psychology. Professionals/para professionals work to alter undesirable behaviors in clients through the lens of this science.
Part 1: You will first partake in a training during which you will learn from behavior analysts how to analyze behavior; and how to design a step-by-step behavior intervention for undesirable behavior patterns in individuals.
Part 2: After successful completion of the training, you will be working under direct supervision of board certified behavior analysts, and other mental health professionals.
The work entails implementation of uniquely designed behaviour interventions as means of therapeutic approach for children/teenagers diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, Autism, Bipolar, and anxiety disorders. The therapy is overseen by a team of professionals, and implemented by junior interventionists.
.Although an educational background in psychology is an asset, it is not a requirement as all training will be included. If you have taken any psychology classes, please make note of them in your application. Desire for a long term career in the field (and not just a short term experience)
