COURSE 36 - 2 Hours 
Developing Pro Bono Services in Developing Countries

We offer a one hour sessions on
True Stories - Good Outcomes  
One hour is made available for questions. 
Length of course or presentation:  Most seminars and presentations can be summarised and offered in 1-2 hour slots.  Presentations and training will be adapted to the skill, expertise and preference of the audience.     

Who should attend?  General Practitioners, Specialist Nurses, Paediatricians, Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Therapists, Police and Prison Officers, Youth Offending Teams, Education and Child and Adolescent Mental Health teams.  Individuals with an interest in child mental health or who regularly work with children presenting with, or at risk of presenting with, mental health difficulties and neurodevelopmental problems are also welcome.   

We sometimes offer these seminars to the public, for instance, groups of parents, children and young people when requested.  Presentations are adapted to be 'child friendly' for young audiences.

Our audiences are mostly Paediatricians, GPs, medical students, doctors specialising in Child Psychiatry and individuals working with vulnerable children in charity organisations or voluntary settings.   

Location, Date and Time:  Organisations, departments, surgeries or teams are welcome to contact us to arrange a training courses or seminars.  We usually require a notice period of 2-4 weeks. Seminars are usually offered at the organisation's place of work for their convenience, but can be arranged at our offices in London or in Cambridge.  Seminars can be offered on Saturdays or Sundays. Full day courses (more or less 6hrs), half day courses (more or less 3hrs) or single presentations (usually 90min - 2hrs) can be arranged.  

We aim to be flexible regarding day, time and place, depending on need. 

Specially tailored seminars:  Professionals in Health, Education, YOT, the Criminal Justice System or organisations offering services to vulnerable children often ask for a presentation on a particular subject with a particular focus, for instance 'Developmental Problems and Mental Illness associated with Children with HIV', 'PTSD in Victims of Torture' or 'Supporting Children with ADHD in Prison or in Custody'.  We are able to adapt our material to suit specific needs.  We usually require a notice period of 2-6 weeks.  

Most frequently requested seminars: 
Assessing and Managing Risk to Self, Others and From Others
Identifying Mental Illness and Neurodevelopmental Problems in Complex, High Risk Presentations
Developing Services for Hard to Reach Children in High Risk Settings

Study Methods:  The seminars usually consist of interactive talks, which can include discussions and exercises.  Clinical scenarios are usually used throughout most presentations.  Written material can be made available if requested in advance.  Question time is available after every session.

Course fee:  Fees vary depending on whether a full day, half day or 1-2 hour seminar is booked, as well as on how many sessions are booked.  We are happy to negotiate and be flexible on cost, so please do not hesitate to contact us with your specific service needs and budget.  We are sometimes able to offer training sessions free of charge.
                          
The course fees are independent of the number of delegates attending.  We usually ask that you inform us if you expect an audience of less than 5 people or more than 20 people.  We do not ask any additional travelling fees if the location is within more or less 1 hour from Cambridge.    

Accreditation:  Each course is eligible for 1-6 CPD hours subject to peer group approval.

About the speakers:  The speakers are consultants in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.  All speakers have over ten years of experience teaching professionals in CAMHS teams, medical staff and paramedical staff in hospitals and in the community.  All speakers have taught medical students at the University of Cambridge and doctors specialising in Psychiatry on the MRCPsych part II course. 

Two consultants usually offer the training sessions together, although at times the sessions will only be offered by one consultant.  

Teaching and raising awareness are essential components of our service. 

We are always interested in improving the courses we provide and will ask for feedback from attendees.

Please do not hesitate to Contact Us for more information or further discussion.
