National and International statistics identify that the prevalence of Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH) disorders is approximately 12.5%.  Developing a multi-agency strategy for child and adolescent mental health skills development across all children’s agencies is one of the central aims of all historical and contemporary children’s policy frameworks including “Every Child Matters”, the National Service Framework (NSF) for Adult Mental Health and for Children (more recently the Children and Young Peoples Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (CYP- IAPT) and currently the publication of Future in Mind (2015) and Five Year Forward (2016) continue this direction of travel.  This module aims to provide practitioners with a critical understanding of the common emotional, behavioural and mental health issues experienced by children, young people and their families. The module may consolidate current knowledge and introduce new learning and create a discourse between theory, practice and government policy that inform service provision. The following themes will inform the content of the module:

  • Attachment difficulties Developmental Disorders in Children and Young People
  • Anxiety Disorders in Children and Young People Trauma in Children and Young People
  • Low self-esteem and depression
