Improving Mental Health Crisis Care



The NHS has recently proposed the introduction of five new waiting time guarantees. The proposals could ensure that patients requiring urgent care will be seen by community mental health crisis teams within 24 hours of referral, with the most urgent getting help within four hours. Mental health liaison services for those who end up in A&E departments would also be rolled out to remaining sites across the country.

This national conference focuses on ensuring best practice in mental health crisis services and delivering effective access during and beyond the Covid-19 pandemic. The conference takes a practical case study based approach to improving services and outcomes for people with mental health conditions reaching crisis point, and will also examine meeting demand and how currently stretched services can meet the new NHS access standards. The day will focus on improving services for mental health crisis care, through learning from organisations that have succeeded in addressing the challenge of improving access and delivering an effective mental health crisis pathway.

Therapeutic work with children and young people suffering child sexual abuse and exploitation



This Masterclass programme, facilitated by Dr Arnon Bentovim and Carol Jolliffe, will help practitioners working in social care, health, education and youth justice to deliver effective therapeutic work with children subject to sexual abuse and exploitation. The approach recognises that sexual abuse and exploitation occur in a context of significant adversity, and is based in Trauma Informed Practice which recognises common responses to adversity in childhood are traumatic, and such responses in association with a variety of social, psychological and genetic influences can trigger an extensive set of complex overlapping physical, behavioural and mental health responses.

Reducing the Harmful effects of exposure to Domestic Violence & Abuse on Children and Young People



The Home Office classifies Domestic Violence and Abuse (DVA) as “Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence and abuse between those aged 16 or over, who are or have been intimate partners or family members regardless of gender and sexuality.” The Children Act (Section 31, Children Act 1989, amended 2002) states that “children who witness domestic violence suffer emotional and psychological maltreatment”. It is estimated 1 in 7 UK children will be exposed to DVA. 

This CPD certified masterclass will consider the role of toxic stress and trauma in the pathway to interpersonal violence between parents, and the climate of violence which harms the mental health and development of children and young people. A trauma-informed model of identification, risk assessment, protection and modular intervention will be outlined to reduce the harmful effects of Domestic Violence and Abuse.
