UNDER THE RAINBOW Psychotherapist position description Sinai Health System is currently the largest provider of mental health services for west Chicago communities. For over 25 years, Sinai has offered outpatient therapy for children between ages 3-18 and their families through it’s Under the Rainbow (UTR) program, a community mental health center housed in Mount Sinai Hospital. Under the Rainbow works to prevent, reduce, and facilitate the recovery from childhood trauma. More than 85 percent of participating children have experienced life altering traumatic events or have been exposed to complex trauma resulting in mental health, behavioral, or school problems. Therapeutic services are individualized and geared to promote the full well-being of children and adolescents including the development and utilization of natural, family, and community supports. These services promote resilience and emotional recovery. As a part of the resiliency and recovery process, UTR attempts to understand children in their cultural, familial, and community contexts, and support families’ functioning in these various contexts. Services are provided in variety of modalities including individual, group, and family therapy, all utilizing a Trauma-Informed lens and evidence based practices. Under The Rainbow provides services in Spanish and English, and utilizes a combination of in-person and telehealth services at this time. UTR is a multidisciplinary team of clinicians that includes psychologists, social workers, crisis workers, counselors, doctoral externs, and master’s interns. Under The Rainbow accepts most insurance carriers; however 90% of the families served have Medicaid. Although UTR provides services to a wide range of clinical presentations and levels of need, youth and families often present with a moderate level of acuity and complex needs. Risk assessments are completed regularly, and often require the involvement of external systems such as DCFS, SASS, legal, school, and parent/guardians. Psychotherapists manage an active caseload of approximately 25-30 cases, which are a combination of individual and family cases. Psychotherapists may also co-lead therapy groups, be involved with one of several grant-based programs that often include school or community based clinical work, or be involved in the training of interns and externs in our Training Program. All psychotherapists receive regular supervision tailored to their developmental level and licensure requirements, and are encouraged to take advantage of the collaborative and collegial culture of the clinic.
