The Waves Recovery Programme is a 12 month recovery programme designed to provide understanding, tools, learning, support and connections for people managing a diagnosis or traits of a personality disorder. The programme has been developed on Andresen’s model of recovery, alongside DBT skills and incorporating the 3 interconnected elements of the Biopsychosocial model. It is carefully curated to be recovery focused, offering a diverse range of learning and social opportunities, whilst challenging the core traits of BPD/EUPD.

We focus heavily on the setting of goals, identity outside of diagnosis, personal responsibility, and creating meaning and empowerment whilst instilling hope into each individual. By revisiting these essential components we promote positive change and reflective self-awareness throughout.

The programme is made up of 6 modules; morning sessions are psychoeducational, challenging individuals to work on themselves and begin a journey of self-discovery. Afternoon sessions are more creative, social, an opportunity to try something new and build connections, and put the learning into practice. The service normally runs every Monday and Wednesday from 10-4 at a beautiful city centre location, but during the COVID-19 restrictions we are delivering the sessions across 3 days.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate individual to join our team to assist in the running and delivery of our service. We require an experienced individual to join the small team in facilitating and delivering sessions to the attendees and assisting setting up the programme of events. The successful applicant will also be required to support group attendees with their mental and physical well-being, and provide crisis interventions if required.
