Music Therapist - Broughton Hospital

Broughton Hospital is currently recruiting for a Music Therapist. Broughton Hospital’s Creative/Expressive Arts (CEA) Therapy Department is an extension of the Recreational Therapy (RT) Department. The purpose of this department is to provide individual, small and large group Psychosocial Interventions (PSI’s) to patients with psychiatric, emotional, physical... and developmental impairments in an inpatient hospital setting. Services are either individualized, goal-directed programs provided to address specific rehabilitative needs, or are of a more general, diversional nature serving primarily to provide opportunities for positive interaction and healthy leisure time usage.

This position will provide music therapy to adolescent and adult psychiatric patients, many of whom have Serious and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI). This individual will incorporate music therapy techniques such as singing, structured and improvisational instrumental experiences, visual art, drama, poetry, literature, song writing, lyric discussion, movement and other forms of creative expression into individual and group sessions throughout the facility. Because this position is part of a large Recreational Therapy/Creative Expressive Arts (RT/CEA) department, this individual may be asked to assist with area-specific or hospital-wide patient events as needed.

The typical schedule for this position is Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm; however, flexibility is required to meet the needs of the hospital.
• *This position is designated Mandatory and must report during adverse weather events.

About the Facility: Broughton Hospital operates 382 beds and is one of the three regional psychiatric hospitals with statutory responsibility for operating as part of the Division of State Operated Healthcare Facilities (DSOHF). With the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, we provide help and support to North Carolinians, and their families, experiencing mental illness. Our hospital serves the western thirty-seven (37) counties of North Carolina, as part of the state's system of care and treatment for persons with mental illness.
