This will allow you to expand your knowledge and skillset very quickly giving you an outstanding platform for your career.
Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate their skills and experiences in engaging with patients, effectively managing risk and promoting patient involvement in their care and treatment.
You will want to work in a therapeutic environment that supports the patients move towards a safe, more independent future and be able to demonstrate excellent communication skills.
You will work with a large multidisciplinary team including psychiatrists, other registered mental health nurses, healthcare assistants, teaching staff, therapists (including DBT and CBT therapists, a clinical psychologist, a child psychotherapist and an occupational therapist). You will be involved in the assessment, planning and implementation of patient care. You will also be expected to attend daily multidisciplinary handover meetings, ward rounds and CPA meetings.
Occasionally you may be needed to work in the adult acute unit dependant on service needs. This is a service catering mainly to adult private patients and also adult OCD patients referred through the NHS.
About Our Service:
The adolescent unit consists of 2 wards. Oak ward has 9 beds and Birch ward has 13 beds. The vast majority of our patients are funded by the NHS and referred from local NHS out-patient Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). We also provide services for adolescents with OCD and private patients. We work with 12 to 17 year olds presenting with a wide range of mental health problems, but particular specialities are with self harm. Many of our young people have experienced earlier abuse and neglect and have attachment difficulties and emotional dysregulation.
We use a variety of different therapeutic approaches and in particular use Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) which is an evidence based approach for use with self harm. We would expect you to be able to use DBT skills when working with the young people and we will provide regular training and supervision on-site for this.
We also have some young people with severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or Body Dysmorphic Disorder who are referred here for help. We will also provide training on-site for working with young people with these conditions.
As one of the UK's leading providers of behavioural care and specialist support services to adults and young people, Priory Group promise a challenging and fulfilling career with the support of a world class organisation willing to invest in your development.
