We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Arts Therapist (Dance Movement, Art, Drama or Music Therapist) with energy and enthusiasm to help us develop high quality Arts Therapy services for children and young people with life threatening and life limiting conditions and their families; to include working with individual families, groups of service users and whole organisation community approaches.
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is a specialist provider of palliative care services across the East of England . Our emotional health and wellbeing approach is integral to our work with children, young people, parents and families. Applications are welcomed from those with an interest in working with clients across the whole lifespan. We have a particular focus on delivering interventions which are holistic, systemic, needs led, resilience building and are goal based and outcome focused. The postholder will primarily be based at EACH’s Milton (Cambridge) hospice but will work across our three hospices.
The postholder will join an established Wellbeing Leadership team consisting of a Clinical Psychologist, four Family Therapists and a Therapeutic Counsellor and will lead in the area of Arts Therapy Approaches. We have a team of professionals (counsellors, art and music therapists, family therapists, clinical psychologist, play specialists, activity assistants, nurses and care assistants) who deliver individual, group and community interventions at both a targeted and universal level of support.
