Can you provide vital Community Based therapeutic interventions, assessments, advice and guidance on psychological matters in a setting of limited resources?
A sub-tropical island of spectacular and beautiful landscapes in the South Atlantic with a warm and friendly population of 4,500, St Helena is a self-governing overseas territory of the UK. It’s now poised for transformation with the recent opening of a brand new international airport offering scheduled commercial air access.
This is a great opportunity to deliver education and consultancy as part of a community care approach, with assessments and supporting information for other professionals. You will develop local staff skills and pathways, and a sustainable provision of expert psychological advice/support for Saint Helena, leading psychological responses and offering expert advice during emergency/critical incidents.
Adept at providing consultation, training and supervision to other professional and non-professional staff, you will show flexibility, creativity and reliability as an independent clinician and in a team. Experience of risk assessment and management will be essential, along with a creative and constructive solution-focused approach. You should also be open to feedback from others.
With university qualifications in the field of psychology plus registration as a psychologist with your relevant national body, you must have substantial experience in therapeutic work with people who have suffered trauma. You will have a background in working with persons with a disability and an ability to design and implement behaviour support programmes. You must also have experience around suicide intervention, prevention and postvention support.
We offer an extensive benefits package with 30 days leave pa, fare paid travel, freight, pension contribution and relocation allowance (see overseas vacancy information).
