Module Lead - Clinical Practice in Context

Location: London

Application Deadline: 25 June 2021 12:00

Vacancy Type: Fixed Term/Part Time

Contract Duration: Fixed term, 12 months in the first instance

Hours per week and working pattern: Part-time (130 hours per annum); Teaching takes place in term time on Fridays – Term 1 only

The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families supports distressed children and their families through innovative therapeutic practice and research, training and promoting awareness of mental health issues. In April 2019, the Centre opened its new Centre of Excellence located in King’s Cross. The Centre collaborates with UCL in offering a unique portfolio of postgraduate programmes in child and adolescent mental health, covering both clinical training and research, ranging from certificate to doctoral levels.

The Centre values diversity and aims to have a workforce that reflects this. We encourage applications from all sections of the community.

The main purpose of the post is to ensure the successful delivery of the ‘Clinical Practice in Context’ module in the first term of Year 2. The module consists of 2.5 hrs of weekly lectures/seminars throughout the term (usually ten weeks). This module forms part of the curriculum for our two-year full-time MSc programme in Developmental Psychology and Clinical Practice: a course aimed at drawing together theory, research and therapeutic thinking from a range of perspectives, including clinical and cognitive psychology, systemic theory, psychoanalysis and neuroscience. In their second year, students have an opportunity to apply their clinical skills by undertaking a placement within a child and adolescent mental health setting, whilst continuing to attend lectures and seminars as well as conducting a clinically based research project.  

The post-holder will develop the module curriculum in line with the specification approved by UCL and under the direction of the Programme Director. The post-holder will facilitate weekly teaching, which can include lectures and seminars. The aims of these teaching sessions are to develop theoretical knowledge, critical thinking, clinical and reflective skills in relation to building and maintaining therapeutic relationships when working in clinical settings with children, adolescents and families. The post-holder will also be involved in marking of assignments related to the module.  

The post-holder will be home-based during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; thereafter at the Anna Freud Centre, 4-8 Rodney Street, London N1 9JH.
