We are excited to advertise this newly created role in our Children & Young People's Complex Needs Service (CNS).
You will work alongside colleagues in the CNS to develop and deliver training packages to professionals in our partner agencies. The aim will be to help other professionals develop knowledge and understanding of child emotional development to consider the impact of trauma and abuse so that those professionals may develop understanding of a young person's presenting difficulties so that they can be supported in the most helpful way.
The CNS provides support to professionals working with some of the most vulnerable young people who may present with complex and multiple needs. These include children in residential care children and young people on the edge of care young people who have left care children and young people who are involved with the Youth Offending Service those at risk of exploitation and extra-familial harm and children who present harmful sexual behaviours.
CNS clinicians work closely with a wide range of services including Lincolnshire County Council's Future4Me Service, Children's Services, Barnardo's Leaving Care Service, and LPFT Children & Young Peoples Services staff. The type of support offered by the CNS utilises a trauma-informed approach and includes consultation, formulation, supervision, assessment and direct work where appropriate, supporting young people to access mainstream services, and training.Main duties of the job
