Applications are invited for a fixed-term, full-time psychological therapist post in the Early Intervention in Psychosis Service in Oxfordshire. This post is available as maternity cover until 31/12/2020.

The purpose of the post is to provide a highly specialist psychological therapy service to the clients of the Early Intervention in Psychosis Service, across a variety of settings. In particular, the post-holder will deliver NICE-recommended individual cognitive behavioural therapy (CBTp) to clients with psychosis, and family intervention (FI) to clients with psychosis and their carers. The post-holder will be expected to see psychologically complex clients, for example, with multiple psychotic symptoms, or psychosis and other co-morbid problems. The post-holder will also provide clinical supervision and consultation to other members of the team, and will be able to contribute to audit, service development and clinically-relevant research. The post-holder will work as part of an MDT and contribute to the wider team functions.

The posts will be managed through the Early Intervention in Psychosis Service, with line management and clinical and professional supervision provided by the Consultant Clinical Psychologist. The successful candidate will be HCPC registered and BABCP accreditable as a CBT therapist. Interest and experience in working with clients with psychosis and their carers using a CBT framework is essential.
