Kōrero mō te tūranga - About the role
Your role in the Wellington Central Community Mental Health Team will involve the delivery of a range of psychological therapies for adults with moderate to severe mental health disorders. You will be expected to undertake comprehensive assessments, create risk management plans, formulate and articulate treatment plans, and provide individual/group therapies for a broad range of mental health difficulties. You will provide a psychological perspective across the MDT.
Psychologists at any stage in their career are very welcome to apply. New graduate or early career psychologists are well supported within the Mental Health, Addiction and Intellectual Disability Service (MHAIDS). The Psychology Transition group is a peer supervision group specifically aimed at psychologists new to MHAIDS. There are also peer supervision and special interest groups (e.g., for neuropsychology, EMDR) that run frequently. MHAIDS routinely provides training in areas of interest to psychologists (e.g., motivational interviewing, risk assessment, Te Tiriti o Waitangi). There are supports in place to help new psychologists find clinical supervisors.
We also welcome applications from experienced psychologists. There are opportunities to supervise other psychologists, including intern psychologists, as well as staff from other disciplines completing the Otago University CBT certificate and diploma courses.
