For over 117 years, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens has been providing quality social services to the neighborhoods of Brooklyn and Queens, and currently offers 160-plus programs and services for children, youth, adults, seniors, and those struggling with mental illness. 
Our Clinics are community-based which offer a professional and welcoming environment for both clients and staff. The Clinics provide psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacological therapy, as well as individual, group, family therapy, crisis intervention, medication management, case management and collateral sessions. Our staff members follow an approach to health care that emphasizes wellness, recovery, trauma-informed care and physical-behavioral health integration.

The Agency has embraced the concept of a fully integrated system of care for all consumers of service.  This requires that staff assess the client’s needs holistically and see it as their responsibility to connect the client with services needed both internal and external to the Agency, regardless of the door through which the consumer enters the system.  

Under the direction of a designated Clinical Supervisor, the Licensed Social Worker is responsible for direct service to clients in the Agency’s outpatient mental health programs.  All services are to be delivered in a professional and ethical manner, consistent with best practice tenets.  The Licensed Social Worker will function as part of a treatment team, maintains mandated levels of service, participates in Agency meetings as required and fully comply with Agency policies and procedures.

The Licensed Social Worker will perform initial interview, crisis intervention, and ongoing therapy with individuals, groups and families.  The Licensed Social Worker will adhere to all standards of contract compliance, audit readiness, Agency policies and procedures, and all other regulatory requirements.  The Licensed Social Worker will work as a member of a team to help insure the overall integrity and welfare of the Agency.
