About Refugee Trauma Initiative
Founded in 2016, Refugee Trauma Initiative (RTI) is committed to supporting community and frontline workers to bring non-clinical mental health support to every child and family affected by violence and displacement. The organization’s mission is to help communities heal from violence and displacement with a vision of a world where caring mental health workers are within reach of anyone affected by trauma. After five years of delivering direct services for families, young children, young people, and men and women, RTI will expand its geographic scope, expanding its model that trains frontline workers and support local organizations to additional countries and communities.
RTI is seeking a skilled trainer and therapeutic practitioner, to join RTI’s programs team to work across its early-childhood, youth, and adult programs to deliver therapeutic skills training and capacity-building support to non-specialist frontline workers and local organizations. The organization is particularly interested in practitioners with training or experience working with children and adolescents, and also Arabic and Farsi speaking applicants. As part of a small, specialized team, the candidate will work to support families, children, and young people who have been displaced by war, persecution, and climate change.
