Monday, January 16, 2017

The Menninger Clinic is pleased to announce it is now accepting applications for its 2017-2018 Postgraduate Social Work Fellowships, which are available in Menninger's inpatient adult specialty programs. The deadline for applications is February 3.


The Fellowships

Fellows participate as members of interdisciplinary teams and work directly with patients and their families, often serving as a liaison between the patient, family and team. Fellows integrate diagnostic formulations into treatment planning, weekly team meetings and team rounds with patients.


In addition, fellows conduct group, individual and family therapy sessions and are involved in advanced case management. Generally, fellows have a caseload of three families and two individual psychotherapy cases at a time. Fellows are responsible for co-facilitating group therapy twice per week. In total, fellows carry four to eight hours of individual and group therapy per week and three to five hours of family therapy and/or intervention per week, in addition to other clinical duties.


Each week fellows participate in approximately 10 hours of individual supervision, group supervision and didactic seminars. Topics include family dynamics, individual case conference, clinical syndromes, group dynamics, group process, psychodynamic psychotherapy and seminar in psychological testing and assessment. 



Candidates must possess the following qualifications:

  • Master's degree in Social Work (MSW, MSSW) from a graduate college or school of Social Work accredited by the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE).
  • Concentration in clinical social work; specify background working with individuals, families, or groups is helpful, as is familiarity with the DSM-V.
  • LMSW or LCSW from the Texas State Board of Social Work Examiners (TSBSWE before beginning the fellowship).
