This opportunity is for a mental health practitioner with a professional qualification to work as part of a specialist CAMHS DBT service, which has been short-listed for several national awards! The role is being advertised as an Advanced DBT Practitioner (Band 7) with the requirement that the post-holder must be trained in DBT. However, applications would also be considered for a DBT Practitioner (Band 6) role, with training in DBT being offered as part of this role.
The role involves offering individual therapy, group skills training, telephone coaching, and be an active member of a DBT Consultation team. The service is relatively new; opening to referrals in March 2019, therefore the post holder will have opportunity not only to work clinically with young people and families with complex mental health problems, but also to be part of the ongoing development of this innovative team.
This is an exciting opportunity for any candidate who wants to be part of an ambitious and energetic organisation and a high-profile national programme, with a focus on empowering individuals and ensuring the very best clinical and individual recovery outcomes. Furthermore, you would be joining a very supportive and passionate team who focus on working together to deliver the best possible care and treatment to the families we work with.
The post is part of an exciting expansion of CAMHS specialist services within HPFT, supported by NHS England’s innovative ‘Testing New Care Models in tertiary mental health services’ programme (Wave 2). Our new model of care for Tertiary Services has been designed to transform local service provision in Hertfordshire by integrating the Tier 4 and Tier 3 CAMHS pathways, to ensure that young people across the county can access the services that meet their needs at the right time.
