Music Therapist Opening

At Infinity, we believe in open lines of communication regarding any of our employment positions. Please feel free to ask questions regarding pay, benefits, job responsibilities, etc. at any point during the application process. Please contact Jona Jeffcoat, MT-BC, Director of Services at (860) 518-5557 or jona@infinitymusictherapy.com.

Are you a clinician who is passionate about seeing music spark a positive change in others? Are you a creative, out-of the-box thinker, who finds joy in sharing clinical ideas with others? Are you looking for a place to help you grow? If so, Infinity is looking for you!  We have an immediate need for a board certified music therapist to join our team (MT-BC). We want your ideas, your energy, and passion!

 

Hours: This position will start at part-time approximately twenty (20) hours per week and will grow to full-time for the right candidate. The work week is comprised of direct client contact, office hours for planning and documentation, team meetings, and traveling in between clients.

Schedule: We are seeking an immediate hire. This position will include daytime, afternoon, and evening hours based upon the needs of our clients. This position will be a Tuesday- Saturdayschedule and will include a combination of morning, afternoon, and evenings. The vast majority of our clients request services between 3:00pm-7:00pm at night during the week or on 9:30am-4:30pm on the weekends. As a member of our team, you will be expected to attend team meetings at our Southington clinic on Tuesday mornings from 9:15am-11:15am. Days will vary in length.

Location: This caseload will be predominately in Fairfield County but may include sessions grouped in other areas of the state. Sessions will be held in homes, in schools, and in facilities throughout the state. 

Team-based Model: Infinity works on a team-based model. We believe in coming together to make agency decisions, collaborate on cases, participate in team-trainings, and engage in self-care. This means that we co-treat on cases, any member of our team may provide supervision as requested by another member of our team, and we work collaboratively to cover cases to ensure that when a member of our team is off, they can focus 100% on self-care. A supervisor is always on call, so you will never handle tough decisions alone. Every member of our clinical team is provided a work cellphone so even if you are “alone” in the field, you are never really alone.

Salary:  This position will begin hourly during an initial orientation period. Once orientation has been completed, you will be transitioned to a salaried position. Our full-time salary starts at $40k/yr plus benefits; part-time staff are paid a proportionate salary to their schedule. Salary is based on a variety of factors including experience in our target populations, advanced trainings, and other skills you may possess. We believe in financial stability for our team. Once salaried, you will receive your full salary regardless of inclement weather closings, school vacations, client cancellations, or holidays impacting their schedule. You are compensated for your planning time, commute time between clients, and even your time sanitizing/ cleaning materials. If you’re working, you should be getting paid.

Responsibilities: As a member of our team, you will be expected to provide individual and group music therapy sessions to children and adults diagnosed with developmental disabilities, mental health disorders, neurological needs, wellness needs, etc. (As you grow with us, we will work hard to build your caseload with your desired populations). You will be expected to write treatment plans, keep accurate data, write clinical reports, and ensure that client schedules are maintained. You will participate in treatment team meetings, assist with team functions including marketing events, and complete general administrative tasks such as keeping your time sheet and maintaining client budget spreadsheets. In addition, you may be asked to fulfill non-clinical responsibilities such as teaching music lessons or providing music enrichment groups. 

Populations/ Types of Sessions: The biggest populations served at Infinity include children diagnosed with Autism, Down Syndrome, and communication disorders, children in foster care with and without a mental health diagnosis, and adults with developmental disabilities within a group home or day program setting. Our services are spread out between being in clinic, in home, in school (on the IEP), and in group home settings. We also receive referrals for adults in memory care settings, drug and alcohol rehab, children and adults with problem sexual behaviors, and individuals without a diagnosis looking for art enrichment/ art lessons. Our sessions are evenly divided between group and individual settings.

Benefits: We are proud to offer our employees a variety of benefits. At Infinity, we believe in opportunities for growth and we look to increase benefits for our staff as their caseload grows and they dedicate time to Infinity. Our benefits packages typically run from $3k-$7k based upon whether an employee is part-time or full-time and the number of years they have dedicated to Infinity.

1575 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138

What is the MATADOC?

The MATADOC is a standardized assessment and evaluation system for music therapists working with minimally responsive populations, or populations whose awareness is unknown due to profound brain damage. This includes people born with brain damage, who have had a stroke, or who might have sustained brain injury through accidents such as road traffic accidents, gunshot wounds, drowning or falls. It can be used for: diagnosis of awareness in adults with disorders of consciousness; treatment planning and goal setting; evaluation of long-term treatment with patients in chronic care settings.

With which populations can it be used? People with complex needs resulting in ‘minimal’ responsiveness e.g. adults and children in vegetative or minimally conscious states; late/end-stage dementia; advanced neurological illness such as Multiple Sclerosis and Huntington’s Disease; profound and multiple developmental disabilities; people with end stage terminal illnesses.

MATADOC has been standardized and validated for use with adults with disorders of consciousness. It is an assessment, diagnostic and treatment evaluation tool.

Which clinical settings?

• Rehabilitation settings

• Nursing home settings (and other continuing care) for diagnosis, treatment planning and evaluation of ongoing treatment.

• Intensive care

What does the first level training involve?

• Classroom lectures

• Experiential sessions

• Video observations

Participants will learn to understand the clinical presentation of people with DOC; how to run a MATADOC session; how to complete the documentation; how to formulate a diagnosis; and how to communicate the assessment findings to interdisciplinary teams and families. Training tools include handouts and training videos that are accessible post-training to assist professionals in applying classroom learning to clinical session.
