Why we exist
We want practitioners in support services to help individuals with complex mental health and challenging behaviours (including personality disorder) have a positive and meaningful life
What we do
We add value to the ability of a service to achieve their objectives.
How we do it
PICT provides staff consultation and training to support service practitioners to be informed about
- what to do - having a plan
- why do it in this way - a planned approach based on a psychological understanding of the individual
- how to do it - providing the practical knowledge and skills to translate this into practice.
Joint working and liaison with other mental health and social care services may be provided to strengthen the care management approach.
We also learn from the recipient service about what they do and we take back to the C&I NHS Foundation Trust liaison contacts and ideas for improved cross-agency working.
Dr Winifred Bolton is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and the strategic development consultant for the PICT service. Dr Bolton was previously the Head of Personality Disorder Services and now provides a key role in the strategic planning of the PICT service.
Rowena Russell is our assistant psychologist. She works on the evaluation of the service.
