Family Futures is a Voluntary Adoption Agency specialising in providing multi-disciplinary assessments and treatment to traumatised children. We were awarded an outstanding rating for our last three inspections by OFSTED including our most recent inspection in 2018. We have a reputation for innovation and offer a high quality service – an integrated multi-disciplinary, assessment, treatment and family-finding service for children who are traumatised or have attachment difficulties.
We are looking for an experienced psychological therapist (e.g. psychotherapist, clinical psychologist, creative arts psychotherapist) with extensive therapeutic experience to work at senior therapist level within our therapy team. Experience or an interest in developing and gaining accreditation in Theraplay or Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy would be important. We are looking for someone:
* who has experience of working with children and families in a therapeutic setting, preferably in the field of fostering and adoption
* who has an understanding of Family Futures Neuro Physiological Psychotherapy (NPP) approach to the treatment of developmentally traumatised children
* who is parent-positive and child friendly
* who wishes to develop their therapeutic skills in working with children, parents and families
* who would enjoy working as part of a multi-disciplinary team.
This is an exciting and challenging role and a wonderful opportunity for someone who wants to be part of a team of professionals who are helping traumatised children and their families based on the most recent neuro-scientific research.
