Professional Training Courses

For several years, I have been running a series of programmes to help train health professionals about mental health. In particular, we learn about recognising signs of mental illness, the implications for attachment and child development, understanding treatment options, developing interventions and becoming familiar with referral pathways. Supported by Bournemouth University, we are looking at extending these courses to more groups, and across multiple disciplines (pre- and post-registration).
