STAMFORD, CT - After 26 years of exceptional professional leadership, the Child Guidance Center of Southern Connecticut’s (CGC) Clinical Director, Dr. Larry Rosenberg, has announced plans to step down from his position in the spring of 2014. CGC has launched a national search to fill this key position.

Dr. Rosenberg has served as Clinical Director of this child and adolescent mental health agency since 1987, continuing to build the professional prominence of the nearly 60 year old institution in the lower Fairfield County community and across the State. During his tenure, CGC created a broad range of new programs based on emerging community needs, and implemented innovative treatment approaches based on the development of the latest and most effective options in mental health diagnosis and treatment of children.

“Though it is difficult to leave an agency where so much exciting work is being done, I feel very confident that this is a good time for me to transition, knowing we have the right people in the right positions to ensure that CGC will continue offering the highest level of professional mental health services,” Rosenberg said of his planned departure. “With high quality directors of each of our programs and community offices, and outstanding clinical staff, I am certain that the agency is in position to continue to thrive for many years to come.”

In addition to building the repertoire of highly regarded services in the community, Dr. Rosenberg is recognized for his special gift for teaching and mentoring up-and-coming mental health professionals. Many of the clinicians he has trained have gone on to become leaders in their own right, some at CGC and others in key positions at respected agencies, hospitals and facilities across the country.

“Delivery of high caliber, compassionate services and commitment to training young professionals have been hallmarks of CGC during Dr. Rosenberg’s tenure at the agency,” said CGC President and CEO Sherry Perlstein. “Our challenge now is to find a new Clinical Director with the expertise to continue this legacy of clinical leadership.”

As a vital member of the senior management team, the Clinical Director will be guided by CGC’s mission, core values and principals of practice and will work with the senior management team to achieve strategic goals and foster an environment that values, supports, and builds the expertise of our staff and advanced practice trainees. The Clinical Director also takes lead responsibility for assuring all diagnostic and treatment services are individualized, child-focused, family-centered, culturally competent and sensitive, strength based, and built on a foundation of sound clinical theory.

Staffed by psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, APRN’s and care coordinators, the Child Guidance Center of Southern Connecticut is an outpatient mental health center for children and adolescents who experience psychological, behavioral, developmental, social or family problems. We are dedicated to reducing emotional suffering and dysfunctional behavior, strengthening families, and helping each child and adolescent achieve optimal potential. Annually, CGC’s clinical staff works with more than 2,000 children in Stamford, Greenwich, Darien, and New Canaan. Preventative services are provided to youngsters, parents, and professionals through community education and consultation programs. Incorporated in 1954, CGC is supported by the Connecticut Department of Children & Families, Connecticut Office of Victim Services, United Way and Community Funds; and is the beneficiary of generous individual, foundation, and corporate contributions.
