CIIS has an enrollment of more than 1,600 students pursuing degrees in a variety of academic programs in its schools of Consciousness and Transformation, Professional Psychology and Health, Undergraduate Studies, and American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In addition, CIIS hosts a vibrant art exhibition program through The Arts at CIIS, and offers a dynamic array of events through its Public Programs & Performances division, including workshops, concerts, and conferences.

The Community Mental Health Program (CMH) leads to a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology degree and prepares students to be licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) or Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCCs) in California. The program is designed for working adults who want to practice professional psychology in public and community settings. A commitment to diversifying the mental health work force, providing culturally and linguistically appropriate services, and reaching out to those denied access to care is critical. The program is built on a foundation of social justice and clinical excellence.
CIIS seeks teaching faculty for adjunct positions in the CMH program. Course offerings will meet CMH program requirements and California Board of Behavioral Sciences licensing requirements for Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCCs).
Specific courses include:
We also intermittently need Clinical Supervisors to teach group and individual clinical practicum supervision courses.
Successful candidates will be licensed therapists with post-practicum working experience in the field of community mental health and a minimum of a Master's degree in counseling psychology. Two years teaching experience at the college level is preferred, and/or willingness to participate in faculty development prior to and simultaneous with the teaching assignment. Successful candidates must have a valid California MFT or LPCC license. PsyDs and LCSWs who meet BBS requirements are also invited to apply.
