The University Neuropsychiatric Institute (UNI) and University of Utah Health are seeking a full-time Recreational Therapist to practice in our new Young Adult Comprehensive Assessment and Treatment (YA CAT) Program at the UNI Murray location!
This position is responsible for developing treatment plans, implementing and evaluating recreation therapy interventions and ensuring safe and appropriate therapeutic services are provided.
The Young Adult Comprehensive Assessment and Treatment (YA CAT) Program at the University Neuropsychiatric Institute is an elective service that offers a 4-8 week, comprehensive clinical evaluation for individuals of ages 18-30 in a residential environment with the capability of providing stabilization in a supervised setting, either before transitioning to the residential facility or if such stabilization is required following decompensation while at the residential facility.
Unlike an acute inpatient hospitalization, the duration of the YA CAT Program allows for the opportunity to conduct expansive diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Such interventions include regular psychiatric and medical evaluation, psychological assessment, behavioral and educational/career/vocational assessment, and individual, family, and group psychotherapy.
The YA CAT Program utilizes a multi-disciplinary team of a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, nurses, career/vocational specialist, expressive therapists (music, art, and recreation), psychiatric technicians, and dietitians.
The comprehensive nature of the assessment helps to provide diagnostic clarity and guide recommendations for future therapeutic modalities and treatment levels of care.
The University of Utah is a Level 1 Trauma Center and is nationally ranked and recognized for our academic research, quality standards and overall patient experience. Our four hospitals and seventeen clinics provide excellence in our comprehensive services, medical advancement, and overall patient outcomes.
