This Temporary Part Time Opportunity is expected to last for up to twelve (12) months.

In 2015, Bridgepoint Active Healthcare, Circle of Care, Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute and Mount Sinai Hospital, came together to form Sinai Health System – and leverage our collective expertise and create a system that better responds to the changing needs of our patients, families and clients. Sinai Health has a bold vision and strategy for the future: To create Canada's leading health system pushing the boundaries to realize the best health and care for complex patients.

A key enabler of this vision is Sinai Health’s People Plan – which provides an explicit commitment to our people about our commitment to creating a workplace culture and environment that is safe, caring, equitable, compassionate and accountable in order to ultimately provide optimal care to patients and their family caregivers.

To support us on our journey, the Lunenfeld Tenenbaum Research Institute part of the Sinai Health System welcomes applications for experienced Research Behavioral Intervention Counsellors to work within the Department of Psychiatry participate on a large-scale research study that endeavors to implement and evaluate the delivery of a brief, evidence-based, psychological intervention for perinatal depression and anxiety.

The Research Behavioral Intervention Counsellors will be expected to keep meticulous records in the study database of the sessions they provide.  The successful candidate will also be interviewed at several points throughout the project about their experiences and suggestions, and their interviews will be included in the study data and analyzed as a part of the study participants.
