Per Diem Therapist - STEP Program

Are you a Therapist that enjoys working with adolescents and supporting them in stepping down to a lower level of care? Join Seneca's STEP team.

As the Per Diem Crisis Therapist will work as a member of a multidisciplinary team to provide direct services to adolescents. You will be responsible for psychosocial evaluation, coordination with Kaiser Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) staff, maintenance of case records including treatments plans among other responsibilities. The per diem schedule is determined by the Program Director/Program Supervisor and the Per Diem Therapist based on program needs.

The STEP (SkillsTransitionsExploration, and Progress) program is a partnership between Kaiser Permanente and Seneca, providing Partial Hospitalization services to youth ages 12-17. The goal of the STEP program is to provide intensive, short-term and stabilization services to enable our clients to step down to lower levels of outpatient mental health treatment. All groups are designed to teach youth the skills necessary to help them learn about their mental health, provide psychoeducation, and help them learn skills to feel better and be safe.
