Course content

This new programme, a Department of Health initiative, aims to train a new workforce for CAMHS: Childrens Wellbeing Practitioners. Graduates will complement the work of existing practitioners by building better links with communities and offering rapid access to low intensity evidence-based treatment interventions, for mild to moderate mental health difficulties. The programme is only available to employees of CYP IAPT partnerships in London and the South East.

The programme is based and taught at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, a national charity with a worldwide reputation.

We aim to equip students with the knowledge, attitude and competence to operate effectively in service that is inclusive and values driven. Our students will be taught the fundamental skills used to assess cases involving young people.

Students will develop insight and competencies in effective brief (low-intensity) interventions for children, young people and family systems, as well as a range of written and computerised interventions. They will also learn of the services available across Children and Young Person Agencies.
