The Austen Riggs Center is a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Center in an open therapeutic community located in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. It is a leading center for education and research, promoting resilience and self-direction in adults (18+) with complex psychiatric problems. The center is currently hiring for a Staff Nurse or Mental Health Specialist.

As a Staff Nurse at The Austen Riggs Center, a psychodynamic approach is utilized in all aspects of treatment. Three principles are applied when all staff work with the patients at The Austen Riggs Center: Relationships are central in human life, symptoms have meaning and can be understood, and patients have authority in their own lives, including their treatment. For some individuals who don’t respond to standard psychiatric methods, optimal treatment requires a different approach.

The nursing staff play a vital role at Riggs – actively listening to patients in a consistent way that forges a therapeutic relationship. Capitalizing on patient strengths, the patient’s adaptive capacity to handle stress can improve. The patient learns new behaviors and makes sense of relationships while being part of a community where the other patients are also resources. Additionally, the registered nurse provides medical care, according to physician’s orders, and directs and guides other personnel in the delivery of nursing care.

The Austen Riggs Center has opportunities for growth and development for nurses in our nursing staff even if at the novice level. If you are interested in assisting with treatment of the individual, not the ‘diagnosis’ and want to start a supported and dynamic journey of your own, please hit the apply now button below and get your career moving in the right direction.
