||Brandon Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy for Young People
The Brandon Centre is a charitable organisation providing psychotherapy, contraception, and sexual health services for young people aged 12–21 years. The Centre also offers multisystemic therapy (MST), a well-researched family and community-based treatment model directed at young people on the edge of care or custody who are involved in antisocial and challenging behaviour.
The Brandon Centre is seeking two individuals with clinical training and experience to implement multisystemic therapy (MST). Individuals should have a D Clin Psy or a Doctorate or Masters degree in Forensic Psychology or Social Work or from another relevant training. Individuals from other relevant professions within the mental health field with significant experience in treating serious anti-social behaviour in young people will be considered as will individuals with this experience and an undergraduate degree from an accredited BPS course. Specific experience in cognitive-behavioural therapy, structural family therapy, strategic family therapy and behaviourally-based treatments is preferred.
We currently have three MST teams. Therapists in two teams are trained to use MST-Standard and an adaptation of the model when treating young people who are substance abusers (MST-SA). Therapists in the MST- PSB team are also trained to treat young people displaying problem sexual behaviour (MST-PSB).
We are seeking to recruit two therapists:
• An MST-SA therapist who will be working in the London boroughs of Haringey and Waltham Forest with families of antisocial young people on the edge of care or custody.
• MST-PSB therapist who will be working across several London boroughs and hold a mixed caseload of MST PSB and MST-Standard cases. Interested individuals may locate information about this treatment model at www.mstservices.com for MST Standard and www.mstpsb.com for MST-PSB.
