The Center for Victims of Torture (CVT) is seeking a new Director of U.S. Clinical Programs to manage and lead a national team of clinical leaders extending mental health services and rehabilitative care to survivors of torture and severe war-related trauma. This Director, participating as a member of the Executive Team, will be responsible for building authentic, trusted relationships among CVT clinical staff, ensuring the integrity and sustainability of services, providing oversight to existing programs, and leading the delivery of new programs. Successful candidates will bring demonstrated professional leadership and clinical operations experience in such sectors as torture or trauma rehabilitation, human rights, humanitarian relief, clinical mental health, psychosocial and/or social justice. This is an outstanding opportunity for a seasoned, collaborative leader to strengthen and advance CVT’s clinical operations in the United States during a crucial time in the organization’s growth.

The Center for Victims of Torture (CVT) is an international nonprofit human rights organization headquartered in Minnesota, dedicated to healing survivors and ending torture and cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment (torture/CIDT). By extending trauma-informed mental health and rehabilitative care to survivors of torture and severe war-related trauma, developing the capacity of institutions and individuals, and advocating against torture/CIDT and in support of human rights, CVT works toward a future in which these abuses cease to exist and their survivors have hope for a new life.

In the United States, CVT extends care to torture and war survivors through clinical locations in Georgia and Minnesota. Each survivor works with a team of specialists who provide psychotherapy, social services/case management, medical treatment, nursing care, and massage and physical therapy.
