Teaching, Training and Consultation

Teaching and Training

We provide bespoke teaching or training, defined by the needs of those commissioning our services. 

Our broad base of clinical expertise enables us to provide the best match between specialist(s) and training subject, ensuring training delivered to the highest standard. 


Teaching or training can be provided on topics related to the following:

  • The emotional wellbeing of children and young people
  • Child and adolescent mental health
  • Developmental disorders (such as ASD / ADHD) 
  • The mental health needs of Looked After and Adopted Children (and those on the edge of care)

Format of Teaching and Training

Sample teaching/ training formats include:

  • Lectures on a specific topic for an hour by individual clinician - 100 attendees
  • Interactive half day workshops with 2 clinicians - 20 attendees
  • Full day carosel of multiple repeated seminars - 6 topics/ 6 clinicians in parallel - 150 attendees
  • Seminar - 90 minutes - 12 attendees 

We can adjust formats according to your needs, maximising the potential for learning.

Consultation

Consultation, by a specialist mental health clinician, to the many professionals and carers that work with children and young people is a highly productive and cost-effective way to influence the mental health of children and young people. 

Aims of consultation include:

  • Promoting, indirectly, the mental health and well-being of children and young people. 
  • Developing the knowledge and skills of professionals
  • Enhancing how professional groups work together

Consultation may be to:

  • an individual professional
  • a group of professionals

Consultation may be about:

  • an individual child ( this most commonly follows our assessment of the young person and forms part of their treatment plan)
  • several children or young people

We may join existing groups of professionals or arrange consultation groups bringing different professionals together.
