On the Inpatient mental health wards, service users can be referred to the Ward Psychologist by ward staff.
We support service users and staff with the development of psychological formulations. These formulations are a way of helping a service user and their care team understand the difficulties that are being experienced, why they have arisen, how they are being maintained, and what interventions might help.
Group work is also offered on the ward to support service users to work on ways to enhance their psychological understanding and promote recovery.
We also run staff training sessions and support staff via reflective practice groups, peer supervision group, de-brief sessions and one-to-one sessions to support staff wellbeing and signposting for further support.
Service users can be referred to SCPTS by the CMHT for individual or group therapy. Some of the individual therapies currently offered include:
The group therapies offer currently includes:
We also offer neuropsychological assessment where there is a mixed picture of cognitive difficulties (e.g. memory, concentration) and mental health needs.
CMHT staff and Psychiatry can also access support from our service via consultation, training and supervision.
