We are currently advertising a new 6-month, part-time post for a Clinical Psychologist, CBT Therapist or a CBT-proficient Psychotherapist. The post-holder will be working on the exciting new Reboot (Recovery Boosting Coaching Programme) project hosted at the Bradford Institute for Health Research. Reboot will adapt an innovative, pro-active psychological intervention which aims to prepare healthcare professionals and students for the stressful events which they are likely to encounter as part of their work.
Previously, the Reboot intervention was delivered to a range of healthcare professionals and students including trainee doctors, midwives and paramedics. The evaluation of this work indicated that participants found it relevant and useful and showed subsequent increases in psychological resilience and confidence in coping with adverse healthcare events. However, this previous work was carried out before the COVID pandemic. The current project has been funded by the Burdett Trust as part of their work to support nurses in the wake of the pandemic. It will adapt the intervention for suitability for Critical Care Nurses and for entirely online delivery.
This role is an opportunity for a self-motivated, creative and enthusiastic psychological therapist to contribute to the development of a new intervention. It would particularly suit therapists who enjoy working independently and who are interested in research. Due to the online nature of the intervention, the successful candidate will have the option to work entirely remotely if preferred, so there is no need to relocate. The post is funded at 60% FTE (3 days per week) but hours will need to be flexible to adapt to the availability of Critical Care Nurses.

Please note, the deadline is June 6th. Interviews will be via Zoom on June 17th. If you have any questions about the role, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
