Clinical Psychologist posts with The Family Place, Newton Abbot, Devon

21 March 2024

The Family Place are looking for Clinical Psychologists with awareness of DDP to join their sessional team at their Newton Abbot base.

“We are looking for self-employed attachment and trauma practitioners to join our therapeutic team in Devon. Working alongside employed staff, our sessional team provides assessments and interventions for children who are adopted or looked after and their families using an integrated team approach, centrally involving parents and carers throughout.

Most of our therapy interventions will draw on a combination of Theraplay®, DDP, sensory work and creative therapies. We work with parent/carer-child dyads and can also work as a team with whole families. We often work as a therapy team with sibling groups. This kind of therapy team package is often popular with parents of sibling groups as it means they can attend less frequently with all children being seen.

We are interested to hear from Clinical Psychologists with an awareness of DDP and/or Theraplay® principles who want to work with children and families impacted by developmental trauma. An energetic and positive outlook, proficient writing and IT skills and the willingness to integrate into our team culture are key requirements.”

These are sessional positions based in Newton Abbot, Devon, and there is no closing date for applications.

The Family Place is a registered Adoption Support Agency based in Clyro, Powys with additional offices in Devon (Newton Abbot), Droitwich and Caerphilly.

If you have any questions or would like to apply please contact Sara Howard, HR Manager, at sara@thefamilyplace.co.uk. Applications should include a short CV of no more than 2 pages and covering letter. More information about be found on The Family Place website.
