Full Job Description

Heart and Solutions is currently looking to hire full time In-Home Behavioral Health Intervention Services (BHIS) providers in Cedar Rapids, IA and surrounding areas! ***Iowa Residents Only***

Behavioral Health Intervention Services is for children ages 4-18 years old and focuses on behaviors that appear at home and at school. BHIS is an in-home counseling program through Medicaid and is available to children that are currently on Title 19. It is an excellent compliment to therapy services, because while therapy uncovers and repairs the “why” of the issue, BHIS is simultaneously addressing the “how to” of improving symptoms. There are many ways to identify if your child or other children you may know can benefit from BHIS. A few examples are: if the child is having difficulty concentrating or following directions, if a child is being bullied or someone is bullying them, if you’ve noticed a change in eating or sleeping patterns, if you’ve noticed a difficulty with adjusting to a move or change, or if the child is having difficulty resolving conflicts with peers or loved ones.

– Valid driver’s license and car insurance

– Must take clients within a 20 mile radius of your office location

Job responsibilities include:

– Provide behavioral health skills to children, ages 4-19 and their families in their home, based on goals that the family sets

– Document progress notes and contact with clients between sessions, on our secure website

– Collaborate with community members to serve clients

– Network in your office area to build your caseload
