The need and demand for specialised training in child & adolescent mental health issues have risen dramatically in recent years.  Our children are growing up in increasingly challenging and complex times.  It is becoming more and more important for all frontline staff involved in caring for this current generation to be skilled in recognising and managing both developmental difficulties and mental health issues.

Earlier this year the government reported on the growing need for specialist training for teaching staff and school workers

Here at Heads & Hearts we have recognised the need for training in these areas to be available to work groups as a whole, whether in schools and colleges, GP practices, social work teams, youth workers, amongst the judiciary or indeed any other profession interfacing with children and young people on a regular basis.

We believe that it is far more useful and cost-effective for organisations to buy in training to their staff groups, training which will come to them and be geared up to the specific needs of their population. 

We have, therefore, devised a training programme which can flexibly cover any or all of the topics named in our areas of interest, either as a short (90 minute) lecture, a half-day or a whole day basis and which will come to you (reducing travel time and costs) and at a time to suit your staff group – including weekends.

Popular training topics include:

Self-harm: assessment and management

Understanding and managing ASD

Understanding and managing ADHD in the classroom

Child Development

Attachment in the Classroom

Understanding attachment

Working with adopted children
