PPEP Care: Autism Awareness (Windsor and Maidenhead)

“Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them. It is a spectrum condition, which means that, while all people with autism share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways” (The National Autistic Society, 2016).

PPEP Care: Supporting Young People with Eating Disorders (Windsor and Maidenhead)

Research shows that eating problems often emerge in adolescence, with the risk being highest for young people between 13 and 17 years of age. That's why it's so important that young people are able to access high-quality support when any problems first arise. ( Young Minds 2020). The NHS is on track to deliver the standard and four fifths of children and young people with an eating disorder now receive treatment within one week in urgent cases and four weeks for non-urgent cases. Increased investment will allow delivery of the 95 percent standard beyond 2020/21, as described in the NHS Long Te ...

Self Harm & Suicide Awareness in Children & Young People

“Self-harm is more common than many people realise, especially among younger people. It's estimated around 10% of young people self-harm at some point, but people of all ages do. This figure is also likely to be an underestimate, as not everyone seeks help.”
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/self-harm/

“Self harm is difficult to accurately estimate, but the highest number of admissions to hospital for self harm is in the 15-25 year old age group” (Self Harm in Kingston Annual Public Health Report, H. Raison, 2014) http://www.kingstonccg.nhs.uk/Mental%20Health%20Strategy.pdf

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 ...

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 ...

Identifying such difficulties early on and offering appropriate support is key in bringing about positive change for young people. ( Childrens Society 2020)

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 ...
