Understanding and supporting exam stress

Everyone gets stressed during exams, but it’s important not to let it get out of control. The latest figures from Childline mention that it delivered over “3,000 counselling sessions online or over the phone on exam stress in 2016/17, which is a 2% increase on what it dealt with in 2015/16 and 11% up on two years ago. The 12-15 year-olds were the most likely to be counselled about exam stress, according to the charity, although it saw the biggest rise in contact from 16-18 year-olds.”

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 in adolescence and young adulthood with a worrying trend towards younger children developing an eating disorder.”

Depression in Children & Young People

According to the Royal College of Psychiatrists, ‘depression usually starts in the teen years, more commonly as children near adulthood. They state that ‘feeling sad is a normal reaction to experiences that are stressful or upsetting. However, when these feelings go on and on, take over your usual self and interfere with your whole life, it can become an illness’ (2016).

Depression rates in children and young people have increased by 70% in the last 25 years (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 2016). It is important that those working with children and young people know the signs to look out ...

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.

This series of three courses will focus upon how an improved understanding of attachment strategies can in ...
