Job Description:

Child and Youth Behavioral Military and Family Life Counselor

*Must hold an unrestricted counseling or social work license in the state where job is located

Strategic Resources, Inc. (SRI), a company with 30 years of excellence serving the Federal Government; and, over 15 years supporting Military Family Readiness and Resiliency for the Department of Defense, is honored to announce our recent contract award in support of the Military and Family Life Counseling (MFLC) Program. SRI is an international, ISO 9001:2015 Certified and CMMI Maturity Level 3 Rated full service provider and we welcome you to become a part of our network.

Overview: SRI is actively seeking energetic, compassionate, licensed counselors and social workers to provide non-medical counseling services to military service members and their families. Non-medical counseling is supportive in nature and addresses: conditions of living; life skills; improving relationships at home and at work; stress management; adjustment issues, such as those related to returning from deployment; marital problems; parenting, and fear, grief and loss. Counseling modalities consist of individual, family, couples and groups. The Child and Youth Behavioral (CYB)-MFLC provides in person, confidential, non-medical counseling services that benefit military children. The demands of military life may be most difficult for children, who may have to start over in new schools, have little or no control over where they go, and generally lack the coping skills of adults. CYB-MFLCs understand the issues military children face and can provide support to meet their individual needs. CYB-MFLCs are usually based out of or near a military installation, working out of a school, Child Development Center (CDC), camp, or Youth and Teen Center. Locations are projected to include installations in almost all states (including the District of Columbia), U.S. territories and commonwealths, as well as many international locations.

Types of Assignments: CYB-MFLCs can be hired in different capacities to meet the demand for counseling services in support of military installations. 1) A Rotational assignment includes serving as a full-time counselor working 40 hours a week performing the traditional walk-around counseling/coaching services rotating to another role at the conclusion of the employment term, generally one year (or a school year). 2) An On-demand assignment includes being hired for a specified period - one hour up to three days to remain on a list of available and qualified licensed counselors and social workers available to work when called. 3) A Surge assignment meets the immediate needs of a military installation in response to a crisis, special event, or temporary increase in counseling requirements. The duration is for a specified period - up to 90 days. 4) A Camp assignment is to provide counselor coverage during recreational camp programs and last for a few days up to three months for long term camps (e.g. summer camp).

Note: Upon completion of the online application, you will be prompted with a MFLC Candidate Poll. Please complete the \\"Type of Assignment Desired\\" field to identify the various assignments you are interested in supporting.
