PSYCHOLOGIST - FULL TIME OR PART TIME, STAMULLEN

SERVICE

Talbot Disability Services offers a specialist service for individuals
with behaviours of concern or behaviours that challenge. These
behaviours can be due to intellectual disability, autism, acquired
brain injury, mental health difficulties or a complex combination of
these. The core characteristic is that the behaviours are to such a
degree that they hinder the person’s full and effective
participation in society on an equal basis with others. Talbot
Disability Services has a range of houses on the site in Stamullen as
well as in the wider community with a graded level of support that
ensures an individual can have a unique care pathway mapped against
their evolving needs and skills. The core values of Dignity, Respect,
Kindness and Engagement underpin the person-centred service we
provide. The aim of the service is firstly to enhance the
individual’s quality of life and second to promote more adaptive
interactions between a person and their environment.

The Psychologist will carry out the following duties under the
supervision of the Senior Psychologist:
