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

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.”

Saying Goodbye

In Kingston and Richmond, it is estimated that 100 parents die each year affecting around 80 children. It is estimated that across the two boroughs, 1200 children aged 5 – 16 have been bereaved of a parent or sibling.
