Attachment: An Introduction - Level 1

Attachment theory is one of the key theories and approaches which offers a way of thinking about the development of children and young people. It is widely used across child and adolescent mental health services, children's services, and increasingly, in adult mental health as well. It is concerned with the ways in which a child's experiences of early relationships and their environment impact upon them psychologically, and how these processes may develop and alter across the lifespan.

Impact of Parental Personality Disorders on Children & Young People

Mental illness affects around 25% of the adult population at some point in their lives, and is more common among those with dependent children. Although this does not necessarily mean a parent will have difficulty meeting their child’s needs, for some there will be a need for targeted intervention (e.g. from Early Help Services) or specialist intervention under the Children Act 1989.

This course will develop a practitioner’s ability to assess and meet the needs of children in families where personality disorders are a feature. This training is delivered by a consultant trainer with experien ...

Eating Disorders in Children & Young People

Eating disorders in the UK affect both males and females and in the most recent report published by the Joint Commissioning Panel for Mental Health in 2013 estimated that “over 1.6 million people in the UK are directly affected by an eating disorder. This figure is likely to be an underestimate of the issue. The illnesses most commonly begin in adolescence and young adulthood with a worrying trend towards younger children developing an eating disorder.”
