Lancaster University Psychological Training Academy
Working with people in distress is demanding, especially given squeezes to services, budgets and most of all time. There is less time to think, share ideas and support each other, or to find ways of learning.
We aim to deliver a range of courses which are :-
Practical and applied, emphasising demonstrating and trying out techniques and considering how they fit with your work
Accessible, with time away from work (and travel costs) minimised by using a mixture of face to face time, online communication and self study
Supportive, enjoyable and flexible around your needs
This training day will introduce you to a range of methods for identifying, assessing and understanding pupils’ mental health needs in schools.

You will learn ways to effectively use the outcomes of assessments to help yourself, young people and families better understand mental health needs, as well as ways to use assessment to help inform intervention plans and requests for support from external agencies.

The course would suit any psychology graduate with an interest in pursuing a career in clinical psychology, looking to develop confidence, understanding and skills relevant to the profession.

While the concepts form the foundations of the profession, and are accessible to people with limited experience, we have found that they do remain relevant and challenging even after qualification. See http://psytraining.co.uk/psyskills for a full course description.
