Post by DisabilitiesTrust » Fri Apr 11, 2014 3:45 pm

1 Year Fixed Term Contract

We are seeking two Assistant Psychologists to work at Chalkdown House Hospital.

Chalkdown House is an Independent Hospital established in 2013. We provide assessment and rehabilitation for people who have acquired a brain injury as a result of direct trauma, disease, anoxia or cerebral vascular accident and who present with challenging behaviours and/or severe psychopathology. We use the Neuro-behavioural approach to change or modify challenging behaviours thus enabling the service users to reintegrate back into society.

The post involves working as part of a multidisciplinary team, under the supervision of clinical psychologists, conducting structured behavioural assessments and devising/implementing behavioural management programmes.

The role may also involve administration of neuropsychological assessments and conducting service user groups.

Applicants are expected to hold a BPS approved degree in Psychology (upper second or first class) and be working towards gaining clinical training.

Experience of working with challenging behaviour would be an advantage as would experience of neuropsychological assessment.

The successful candidate would need to have excellent interpersonal and team working skills, be able to manage his / her own time, be self-motivated and flexible. A full driving licence is advantageous.
