This post presents an exciting opportunity for a clinician experienced in Child Mental Health to successfully deliver the ‘Clinical Skills 1’ module in the first term of the academic year, in October-December. The module consists of 2½ hours of weekly lectures/seminars throughout the term (usually 10 weeks).    

This module forms part of the curriculum for our two-year full-time MSc programme in Developmental Psychology and Clinical Practice: a course aimed at drawing together theory, research and therapeutic thinking from multiple perspectives, including clinical and cognitive psychology, CBT, systemic theory, psychodynamic theory and neuroscience. The aim of the Clinical Skills 1 module is to develop and deepen the clinical knowledge and skills of students and to enable them to apply their learning whilst on their clinical placements.

The post-holder will develop the module curriculum in line with the specification approved by UCL and under the direction of the Programme Director. They will deliver and facilitate weekly lectures and seminars, as well as invite guest lecturers, in relation to the relevant topics. The aims of these teaching sessions are to support students to develop theoretical knowledge, critical thinking, clinical and reflective skills in relation to clinical work with children, adolescents and families.

The post-holder will work autonomously to plan and deliver the module, however there will be opportunity to liaise with the wider programme team, including the Programme Director, tutors and other module leads for example through attending termly team meetings / CPD and other Anna Freud events to share learning and reflections amongst the staff team and to ensure the module is delivered in line with wider Anna Freud and UCL priorities.
