Psychologist, Children's Court Clinic (Parental Leave vacancy) - Children's Court of Victoria

  • Fixed term, Part-time (0.6 FTE) (until 31 August 2021)
  • Work in a dynamic and progressive jurisdiction
  • Be part of a committed, multidisciplinary, supportive team of highly skilled clinicians
  • Engage with children, adolescents and families with a range of presenting difficulties in a clinical setting
About us:

The Children’s Court Clinic (CCC) of Victoria is a state-wide, independent service that conducts assessments for the Family and Criminal Divisions of the Children’s Court of Victoria (ChCV) that involve children, adolescents and their families.

The CCC comprises a dynamic, supportive, highly skilled and multi-disciplinary team of clinicians who assess a variety of clinical, neuropsychological and forensic presentations before the court. Child maltreatment, adult and youth mental illness, complex trauma, substance abuse, personality difficulties, family violence and other adult and youth problem behaviours, in addition to intellectual disability, developmental delay and difficult family dynamics are typical features in cases referred to the Clinic.

The CCC also provides ongoing professional development and supervision of staff, in addition to opportunities for staff to be involved in the supervision of Doctoral psychology students undergoing placements at the Clinic, and the possibility of providing treatment interventions for a small number of cases.

About the role:

The current VPS-5 psychology role involves the provision of independent clinical/forensic assessments for judicial officers presiding over matters in predominantly the Criminal and Family Divisions of the ChCV. Such assessments typically involve interviewing children, adolescents and parents presenting with a myriad of clinical and/or forensic presentations, in addition to risk assessments of young people facing criminal charges, or families whereby safety concerns pertaining to vulnerable children have been raised.

In addition to individual interviews, family functioning is also considered, in addition to parent’s functioning relating to different domains of parenting in some cases. There is also scope to provide court-ordered treatment in a small number of cases, as required.

In Criminal Division cases, Clinic assessments are completed with the aim of assisting magistrates in their decision-making regarding a young person’s culpability and fitness, informing them of the presence of any mental health or cognitive difficulties, their strengths, the context of their offending, and intervention required to assist in reducing their vulnerability to re-offending.

The psychology role also involves participation in planning, supervision, consultancy and education as required.
