Risk Assessment of Children and Adolescents in Crisis training

The Assessment and Risk Assessment of Children and Adolescents in Crisis.™

The Assessment and Risk Assessment of Children and Adolescents in Crisis™ is an APT-Accredited 3-day course, from one of the UK's leading providers of mental health training. We bring the training to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend. (2-day version and refresher courses are also available.)

Executive Summary:

Assessing adolescents and children in crisis settings often causes professionals a lot of concern. They wonder whether they have the necessary skills, they are concerned about the potential volatility of the situation, they are unfamiliar with having another adult (the parent or carer) present and concerned, they are not sure about consent and confidentiality issues, and they are not completely sure what their role is: assessment, risk-assessment, management, or what?

This course sets out to give clear and effective advice about assessing adolescents in crisis, so professionals can feel confident in their clinical skills and confident that they are covering what is meant to be covered.

Option 2: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
