We are looking for a talented Practitioner Psychologist to lead on provision of trauma-informed psychosocial interventions within our City & Hackney Drug and Alcohol Service.
You will offer clinical guidance, training and leadership to a team that delivers psychosocial interventions to both individuals and groups. You will use your expertise to build on a range of innovative approaches with people who use substances and experience mental health difficulties. In addition to being responsible for the systematic governance of these and other services, you will offer practical advice on trauma-informed evidence-based psychosocial interventions to colleagues as well as local agencies and organisations.
Inspiring, developing and coordinating everyone on your team will of course, be a vital part of your role. We will also expect you to have a small caseload of service users with complex needs, providing specialist psychological assessments and therapies (including in group settings).
Beyond the operational level, you will contribute to the strategic direction and development of the service as a whole.
