PGCert Child and Family Mental Health Work


Course Description

The programme aims to provide to all those with experience of working with young children, adolescents and families in a variety of settings (i.e. health, local authority, educational settings and/or within the voluntary and independent sector), the opportunity to update, enhance and develop their critical understanding, knowledge and advanced practice capabilities, in child and adolescent mental health (CAMH) work in multidisciplinary and multi-agency settings.

The programme aims to equip students with both the sophisticated knowledge needed and capabilities required, to undertake CAMH work and in supporting others in working with children and families; to do so confidently and safely. The programme will address and explore issues of equity and inequality, diversity, ethnic and cultural difference, ethical considerations in relation to practitioners' work with service users and carers in child, adolescent and family mental health work. The programme aims to develop authoritative clinical leadership and professional practice capability in the field of child and adolescent mental health (Government response to CAMHS review DCSF 2010).

A further benefit is that you will be taught by lecturers who also work in clinical practice at the CAMHS Directorate of the Tavistock Clinic, London.
