Job overview

Perinatal Mental Health Community Service
3x0.8wte (1x each location; North, East, and West Kent)

We are excited to be able to offer a fantastic preceptorship development position for newly qualified Band 7 Clinical Psychologists (those who have qualified in the last 2 years) and current trainees who are hoping to qualify this year. We would invite applications from those who are looking for the opportunity for career development and wish to build the specialist skills and experience in line with the roles set out below. There will be very close working with a Senior Clinical Psychologist and there will be lots of opportunity for additional support.

Following successful completion of a preceptorship programme (formal log of competencies), usually over a period of 18 -36 months, the Band 7 position will lead to a Band 8a. If you are interested in this position or have any questions, we would welcome and encourage you to contact us for an informal discussion and/or to meet the team.

Main duties of the job

The Perinatal Mental Health Community Service (PMHCS; formerly known as MIMHS) is a specialist service that covers the whole of Kent and Medway. PMHCS specialises in the assessment, diagnosis and short-term treatment of women aged 18 and above who are affected by a moderate to severe mental health illness in the preconception, antenatal and postnatal period.

As perinatal mental health is an expanding area of development, there is fantastic potential for career development and training opportunities. There will be the opportunity to develop specialist competencies in evidence-based models (e.g. tf-CBT, EMDR,) for individual therapy as well as specialist parent-infant interventions including Video Interactive Guidance (VIG) and Video Feedback Intervention to promote positive parenting (VIPP) as well as developing group interventions.

In line with the long-term plan, the service will be developing its interventions with couples, co-parents and working with families up to 24 months. It is an exciting time to join our teams as each perinatal service has recently been awarded national funding for the expansion of their services.
