California Forensic Medical Group is presently recruiting for a part time Clinical Psychologist (three days a week) for the Jail:Based Competency Treatment (JBCT) program in Stanislaus County (Modesto, Ca).
The Jail:Based Competency Treatment program (JBCT) is designed to provide treatment to patients who are accused of a felony and lack the mental competency to assist in their own legal defense. Declared by a judge to be Incompetent to Stand Trial (IST) pursuant to CA Penal Code Section 1370, these patients would otherwise be treated at a state hospital to restore their competency and enable them to face the charges against them. Because of limited hospital beds for treating ISTs, however, DSH has added capacity through the JBCT as part of its continuum of care.
The first JBCT was launched in 2010 at the San Bernardino County jail. Since then, similar programs have been established at the jails in Riverside, Sacramento and Sonoma counties. In addition, these programs are now serving ISTs from other counties. Efforts continue to expand JBCT services to new counties throughout California. CFMG does not manage the programs Riverside and San Bernardino.
