This is an exciting new post which has been developed as part of the multidisciplinary team at The Cove. The Cove is our new Tier 4 Unit which opened in Heysham in 2017. It provides an Inpatient Mental Health service for young people aged 13-18 to be treated and cared for on a single site of excellence. The post holder will work as a member of the multidisciplinary team to provide assessments and interventions for children, young people and their families who have been referred to the service. This will include young people who are experiencing identity, personality and attachment difficulties, who have experienced trauma, loss and complex adversities in their lives and who are presenting behaviour which challenges us including self-harm, eating disorders and psychosis.
Specifically, the post holder will be responsible for the provision of systemic practice and family therapy to these young people at The Cove and their families, as well as contributing to the development of the whole staff team to become psychologically and systemically informed and to the development of a reflexive culture and community across the whole system of staff and service users. The Cove is working towards constant improvement in the safety and effectiveness of its service as well as enhancing the experience of those who use its service – actively supported, guided and informed by a group of experts by experience called “The Crew” comprising of past service users and parents/ carers of past service users.
The post holder will form part of an expanded Psychology and Psychological Therapy Team at The Cove comprising of a Consultant Clinical Psychology lead (who is also a qualified Systemic Psychotherapist) and a Senior Clinical Psychologist, in addition to this post. The successful post holder will be based at The Cove in Heysham. They will maintain a direct clinical case load as well as being an active member of the multidisciplinary team.
