Since many of us have had to look into in-home therapy or MST, I thought I'd share this info I just ran across as I was looking for employment listings. In my state at least, the in-home therapist AND the in-home therapist's super are required to have this as a background: I'm pretty sure this is less than a regular, out-patient counselor/therapist is required to have- for instance, licensure requirements. This stuck out at me because I thought since we have to go thru a series of out-patient therapy before even getting access to in-home that an in-home therapist would be able to offer more than the typical therapist, however, they are evidently less qualified. The ad does say that the successful candidate will get training in behavior management. If this is the norm, I won't expect any of them to know much about BiPolar (BP) or other disorders/MI no matter what they claim. FWIW, I ran across a similar ad last week indiccating the same qualifications. One ad was for MST for the county and the other was for an in-home therapist and a super for a private company that contracts to the county or can be hired by a family.
