The LAAC (Looked After and Adopted Children) Service in Rotherham is expanding.

Sarah Whittaker, Clinical Psychologist, has asked DDP Network to circulate news that they are seeking two therapeutic workers and an 8a Clinical Psychologist – DDP training preferred.

[This is] an exciting opportunity has arisen for two therapeutic workers to join the RMBC Therapeutic Team (to work with Looked After Children and young people) due to funding provided to work intensively with young people and their carers, and the wider network supporting the child.

The Therapeutic Team provides a dedicated specialist therapeutic service to looked after and adopted children and their carers/adoptive parents. The team aims to promote a greater understanding by foster carers, adopters, social workers and residential staff of children’s emotional and developmental health, and their attachment and trauma issues.

You will undertake direct therapeutic work with children, families and professionals, offer advice and consultations, and deliver training. The models used include trauma and attachment based theories – Theraplay, Dan Hughes’ DDP, DBT, family therapy, mentalisation, and EMDR. Experience is required in facilitating meetings and training for social workers and foster carers, and leading therapeutic networks to support placements.
