Attachment: An Introduction - Level 1 (EVENT FULL)

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 Mental Health (EVENT FULL)

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 parental mental illness is a feature. This training is delivered by a consultant trainer with experi ...

PPEP Care: Overcoming Childhood Anxiety (Windsor and Maidenhead)

Children can develop fears and phobias at any age, but they are especially common during early childhood, and again during puberty. Infants can appear to be upset, to be irritable and sleepless, but in very small children, such behaviour is more likely to be caused by hunger, cold, and physical diseases than anxiety. ( The Mental Health Foundation, 1997)

The aim of this workshop is to equip practitioners with knowledge and awareness of childhood anxiety in children under 12. Practitioners will benefit from devising ways to develop the ability to help children who are experiencing debilitati ...
