Contact is a theatre and arts venue in Manchester

Contact, a theatre and arts venue based in Manchester, is seeking a mental health practitioner to support a panel discussion exploring trauma and Black womanxhood, taking place online via Zoom on Thursday 26th November at 7.45pm-9.15pm

Details of the panel discussion are here: https://contactmcr.com/shows/link-up-mandla-rae-trauma-and-black-womxnhood/

We are looking for a practitioner who would be able to listen in on the session, to be present on Zoom if any of the audience feel distressed by the event, and to signpost external sources of support. We have previously worked in this way with a local mental health support worker, but they are now unable to join the session (so apologies for the short notice of this posting).

We are open to practitioners of different trainings, qualifications and therapeutic backgrounds, but we are looking for a Black practitioner who identifies as a woman or as non-binary, and who has experience of supporting group sessions.

The fee for this session would be £100.

We can provide more information by email, our intention is to ensure that the audience listening to the discussion feel safe and supported, with someone to reach out to during the session if they feel distressed.

We would like to expand our network of practitioners who are able to, and interested in, working with arts organisations to support participants and audiences.

To apply for this job email your details to chloecourtney@contactmcr.com.
