The primary role of a Community Based Rehabilitation Specialist (CBRS)
is to aid service participants in developing skills necessary to live
independently, or in preventing movement to a more restrictive living
situation. Interventions take place in individual and/or group sessions,
and must follow the participant’s written Service Plan. CBR Specialists
are directly supervised by a regional program manager.
CBRS workers are required to pass a criminal history background
check, have no more than 2 driving violations within the past 3 years,
and have at least a bachelor degree from a nationally accredited
university or college. If a person possesses a social work or other
licensable degree in the State of Idaho, they must obtain a license
prior to being able to work. Persons working as a CBRS must obtain a
Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner (CPRP) certificate
within 30 months of any experience (including from other agencies).
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. If you would like to apply, please submit your completed application with your resume to the Program Manager at the office you are seeking employment.
