The Department of Psychology in the University of Bath is seeking to appoint an experienced Family and Systemic Psychotherapist as a part-time Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (Teaching Focus) on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology Programme, providing leadership and teaching in systemic practice at Foundation and Intermediate Level.

Systemic practice with families is a core therapeutic modality taught within the programme. First year trainees complete the Foundation in Systemic Practice, accredited by AFT. This has previously been taught alongside a Continuing Professional Development unit for qualified mental health professionals. This is planned to resume in 2022. Teaching in Advanced Systemic Practice, largely provided by external subject specialists, is included in the curriculum for Second- and Third-Year trainees, for whom there may be the option to pursue AFT Intermediate Level accreditation.

If you would like to discuss this post, please contact the Programme Director, Professor Paul Chadwick – pdjc20@bath.ac.uk or Marion Dixon, Family and Systemic Psychotherapist on the DClin team– md980@bath.ac.uk
