RSA Grant for Virginia Commonwealth University

Official Logo of Virginia Commonwealth Univeristy 1938

FUNDING AVAILABLE!

Virginia Commonwealth University is recruiting qualified candidates, including those with disabilities and from other minority backgrounds, with our new RSA traineeships in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling. Would you be so kind as to forward the following message to anybody you think may be able to help us recruit the most worthy candidates for these traineeships? Please call me at 804-687-2890 or email me at creid@vcu.edu with any questions. Thanks!

Please disseminate:
Through two successful grant proposals, VCU’s Department of Rehabilitation Counseling now has available a limited number of traineeships sponsored by the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA).

Students funded by those traineeships commit to “employment payback” of working for two years for a state vocational rehabilitation agency (or nonprofit or other organization contracting with the state agency to provide services to vocational rehabilitation clients) in exchange for every full-time equivalent year of funding.

So, if a student is funded for two years of full-time study, that student would need to work in qualifying employment for four years to satisfy the payback obligation. There is also an option for financial repayment, as if the traineeship were a student loan, if the trainee decides not to work in qualifying employment.

We have two different RSA training projects: one is for students who seek to become vocational rehabilitation counselors, and the other is for students who seek to specialize in working in vocational rehabilitation settings with people who have mental health challenges.

Dr. Chris Reid (creid@vcu.edu) is the project director for the vocational rehabilitation counselor traineeship grant; Dr. Chris Wagner (ccwagner@vcu.edu) is the project director for the mental health specialty traineeship grant.

If you or another qualified applicant that you know are interested in either traineeship, please contact the respective project director, as soon as possible.

With appreciation,
Chris Reid

Two (2) Clinical Assistant Professors in Department of Counseling and Psychological Services

Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA

The Department of Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) at Georgia State University is searching for two full-time Clinical Assistant Professors to begin Fall 2020. CPS is a collaborative and interdisciplinary department that trains counselors, counselor educators, counseling psychologists, and school psychologists at the master’s, educational specialist, and doctoral levels. Our programs are CACREP, APA, or NASP accredited. Faculty provide exceptional education and training to all our students, and affirm professional identities across our multiple programs. 

Qualifications:  Individuals chosen for these two positions must meet the following minimum criteria:

  • An earned doctoral degree (by August 1, 2020) from a CACREP-accredited Counselor Education program.
  • Be license-eligible (LPC) in Georgia by start date. 
  • Eligibility for certification as an Approved Counseling Supervisor (ACS) and/or Certified Professional Counseling Supervisor (CPCS) in Georgia. 
  • Have experience in (or show potential for) teaching core CACREP and specialized courses in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling, School Counseling, and Clinical Rehabilitation masters programs. Show a willingness to teach, supervise, and mentor Counselor Education and Practice doctoral students.
  • Have clinical and supervision experience in one or more of the following: Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, School Counseling, or Counselor Education.
  • One of the two positions will require that the applicant either be a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) or demonstrate CRC-eligibility prior to start date.

These two positions are open to candidates with a range of clinical and teaching interests that are aligned with the field of Counseling. Some preference will be given to applicants with expertise in the following areas:

·     Children/adolescents 

·     Family systems

·     Culturally diverse persons living with mental illness (i.e., abnormal psychology)

·     Trauma and Trauma-informed care

Responsibilities: Major areas of responsibility for these individuals include teaching, clinical supervision, and service to the Department of Counseling and Psychological Services, College of Education and Human Development, and to Georgia State University. These individuals will be expected to teach courses, and train students across all four CACREP accredited programs. Lastly, individuals selected for these positions will be expected to serve either as the Clinical Coordinator for the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program or coordinate the basic counseling skills training program for the CPS department.  

Clinical faculty members within the CPS Department are highly valued, significantly contribute to the teaching and training within our CACREP accredited programs, and serve in important leadership roles within our department. Opportunities for promotion are available for full-time clinical faculty members.  Additional responsibilities may include participating in curriculum assessment and development; supporting students to develop identities as ‘scholar-practitioners’; contributing to program administration, teaching, advising and mentoring masters and PhD students; and providing service to community and professional organizations

GSU is ranked as the #2 most innovative institutions in the country, ranked #25 for social mobility, and ranked #10 in campus ethnic diversity. To this end, GSU and the CPS department value diversity. Candidates from underrepresented groups (e.g., racial and ethnic minority individuals, women and gender minority people, sexual minority individuals, and persons with disabilities) are especially encouraged to apply. Atlanta is an exceptionally diverse and vibrant metropolitan area that provides numerous opportunities for cultural events. 

Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching, an unofficial or official transcript of highest degree earned, and the names of three professional references to Lydia Ewonus either via email (lewonus@gsu.edu) or mail to Lydia Ewonus, Counseling and Psychological Services, P.O. Box 3980, Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia 30302-3980. 

Preference will be given to applications and supporting documents received by October 18, 2019, but the position will remain open until a suitable candidate is selected. Please be advised that should you be recommended for a position, the University System of Georgia Board of Regents policy requires the completion of a background check as a prior condition of employment.
