Simulation course for new CAMHS Practitioners (West London and CNWL Trusts)
This one-day online simulation course aimed at mental health practitioners who have recently started working in CAMHS, focuses on the assessment and management of young people in the community and crisis/liaison setting.
You will be involved in a series of interactive simulated scenarios using specially trained actors. Following each scenario, the facilitators lead a group debrief as you reflect on the scenario and collectively learn from the experience.
Participants include mental health nurses, social workers, occupational therapists and other multidisciplinary team members.
What you will learn from taking this course:
- The differences between working with children rather than adults
- Managing issues centred around confidentiality and consent in children and young people
- Communicating appropriately with children and young people of differing ages and developmental levels
- Working with families and carers in difficult circumstances
- Engaging with young people who are in crisis
- Understanding the perspective of children/young people and families and the patient experience
- The subtle skills of communicating with children and young people, including reading and responding to subtle and overt nuances in the room.
