There is an opportunity for an Integrative Therapist in the Harmful Sexual Behaviour Team for a period of 12 months. This may be reviewed at the end of the initial period.
The HSB Team is a key safeguarding team, hosted within the Birmingham Youth Offending Service, which undertakes specialised risk assessments and therapeutic interventions to prevent and reduce sexually harmful behaviour in partnership with key agencies including Youth Offending Services, Children’s Services, health services, Police, CPS, and schools.
The HSB Team works with children and young people from 7 to 17 years who display harmful sexual behaviour in addition to those who have received criminal convictions for committing sexual offences.
The team works with children and young people directly and provides support for families, carers and other professionals involved in working with the family.
The team provides training, consultation and support to other agencies in order to develop understanding in this area and increase skills and confidence in addressing sexually harmful behaviour. One aim of this model is to advise other professionals around how to address, respond to and manage harmful sexual behaviour in children and young people.
The applicant must hold a relevant professional qualification.
