Stalking Intervention Programme, Ravenswood House, Fareham
We are looking for a highly specialist psychologist to be part of a unique and highly innovative service, working with stalking perpetrators and those who manage them, across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
The Hampshire Stalking Intervention Service is one of only two commissioned health services in the UK working specifically with stalking perpetrators.
This role is a rare chance to be part of this specialist service, providing unique opportunities to develop your skills and your career. You will require previous experience of working within forensic mental health services, inpatient or the community. However, because this service is at the forefront of psychological work with stalking perpetrators, subject specific prior expertise is not required and comprehensive training regarding working with stalking perpetrators is provided.
The team’s main base is Ravenswood House, near Fareham, but travel across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight is required.
The service sits within Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust and works closely with Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire Probation Service, and Aurora New Dawn victim advocacy, in order to provide effective risk management and intervention regarding stalking perpetrators.
The service works to transition service users out of secure settings, and support their ongoing recovery in the community. It also works with perpetrators and those that manage them, with the aim of avoiding admission to psychiatric and secure facilities and reducing costs across the care pathway.
Training and awareness raising is a large part of the work we do. Working with stalking perpetrators is a new and exciting area of mental health care and undertaking audit, research and contributing to the evidence base, is an integral part of our service.
