The FCAMH Service has an exciting opportunity for two Principal Clinical or Forensic Psychologists to join our supportive and friendly team. ECM is a psychology-led approach that sits with in Youth Justice Services and uses multi-agency case formulation to understand what has happened to a child alongside their developmental needs, strengths and protective factors. This informs the way practitioners work with and support children to achieve better outcomes and develop their strengths and potential. ECM is founded in the Trauma Recovery Model and keeps the child at the centre of its thinking. This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Clinical/Forensic psychologist to lead on the psychological part of the ECM service. The psychologist will be well supported by the hosting Community Forensic CAMHS. Although ECM is a pure consultation service, the connection to Community Forensic CAMHS will enable some direct work with young people.
