“Newly Qualified Applications Considered”
Location: Somerset Countywide (Blended Working Considered)
At Turning Point, we are recognised leaders in provision of service for people with substance use and mental health problems. By providing the right support at the right time and making sure that people can find all the help they need through a single point of contact, we have grown into one of the largest providers of substance misuse services in England. We are looking for a talented Practitioner Psychologist to lead on provision of trauma-informed psycho-social interventions within our Somerset Drug and Alcohol Service.
You will offer clinical guidance, training and leadership to a team that delivers psycho-social interventions to both individuals and groups. You will use your expertise to build on a range of innovative approaches with people who use substances.
In addition to being responsible for the systematic governance of these and other services, you will offer practical advice on trauma-informed evidence-based psychological 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.
