Psychotherapists (Part Time)
Newton Abbott & Southampton
Capstone Foster Care have developed a Multidisciplinary Assessment & Treatment Service (aka MATS) which provides assessment, consultation and treatment to children and young people looked after in their fostering services. MATS is led by an employed Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist and the team will comprise Psychology, Psychiatry, Psychotherapy, Educational Psychology, Speech and Language Therapy and Clinical Nurse Specialists.
Team members are self employed and are commissioned to undertake specific pieces of assessment and intervention. MATS is an established service within the South East of England and is now being rolled out across the South West.
We are looking for suitably qualified and experienced Psychotherapists to join the team. Work is likely to be infrequent initially until the service is developed in a new area but could include undertaking clinical support to the foster carers and to the professional network, as well as undertaking specialist assessment of the child or young person and offering direct intervention. This is a unique, multidisciplinary service working in an adaptive and responsive way, to support children and young people within their foster family.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people is enshrined within Capstone Foster Care’s policy and practice. We expect our employees to share this commitment with us.
