Job Description

The Family Place is looking for an Attachment and Trauma Practitioner to join our developing team.

We provide a specialist comprehensive assessment and intervention service to foster and adoptive families using an integrated team approach, centrally involving carers throughout.  Interventions are based on a combination of Theraplay, DDP and Sensory Integration. Our multi-disciplinary team is led by clinical psychologists and we have an excellent team culture.  The work is challenging so regular supervision, CPD and training are provided.  For further information about The Family Place visit:

Our base is in Hay-on-Wye on the Herefordshire/Powys border.  You would need to join the team for a minimum of three days per week. There is potential to organise some of your work closer to home dependent on demand and circumstances. Families come to our service from a wide geographical area and we provide a mix of regular therapy sessions alongside intensive interventions.

We are interested in hearing from you if you want to work with children and families impacted by developmental trauma. You will need a core professional qualification in a field which is relevant to our model (eg clinical psychology, systemic family therapy) and ideally you will have completed Theraplay and/or DDP training.  An energetic and positive outlook, good writing and IT skills and the willingness to integrate into our team culture are key requirements.

Preliminary interviews will take place during  the second half of May/early June.
