Clinical Psychologist required within our Specialist Therapy Team in central London

My client is recruiting a Band 7/8A Psychologist for a team providing psychological input to homeless services in central London

They experience multiple disadvantage and have high levels of complex trauma and interpersonal difficulties coupled with substance misuse issues, anti-social behaviour, self-harm and often an offending history. A PIE takes into consideration how the psychological and emotional needs of the clients are affected by the environments they inhabit; the approach adopted by hostel and outreach staff, training and support offered; the psychology specific interventions delivered and the integration of psychological and trauma informed approaches to the design of services.

The current PIE psychology model uses Mentalization-Based Treatment (MBT) as well as other evidence-based treatments for working with complex needs populations (Incl. DBT, CBT, Psychodynamic, Narrative & Systemic). Here we aim to facilitate recovery by improving mental health and wellbeing, working with anti-social and chaotic behaviours, increasing engagement, reducing repeated evictions and abandonments and other negative outcomes for the clients.

About the role:

This role will sit within a wider Psychology in Hostels team based across central London, which includes: several Trainee Clinical Psychologists, an Art Therapist, three Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologists, four Specialist Clinical Psychologists and a (Principal) Clinical Lead and Head of Service. The Service is also supported by SLaM operational and management structures.

The post-holders will:

· Work closely with hostel, outreach staff, tenancy sustainment and supported living teams, other psychologists and the wider MDT project team to develop a psychological and trauma-informed approach to understanding and managing clients' difficulties.

· Supervise and line manage other qualified and unqualified junior psychologists

· Support, train and consult to the third sector partners, project MDT including peer advocates and wider network of services.

· Offer individual and group clinical work to clients,

· Offer peripatetic and transition services determined by capacity and demand

· Support the assessment and onwards referral of clients into mainstream services

· Develop and promote new ways of working across pathways from the emerging evidence-base.
