Up to 1 in 5 children will have experienced a mental health problem by the age of eighteen. Mental health problems during childhood significantly impair everyday functioning, academic achievement, peer and family relationships and, if left untreated, increase the risk of mental health problems in young adulthood. Fortunately, effective interventions are available with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) for the prevention and treatment of many emotional disorders during childhood. This workshop will be interactive and will provide a practical introduction to the use of CBT with children and adolescents.
Paul Stallard is Professor of Child and Family Mental Health at the University of Bath and Head of Psychological Therapies (CAMHS) for Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. He is a clinical psychologist with over 30 years of experience working clinically with children and young people. He has published over 150 research papers and is the author of the book "Think Good Feel Good: A cognitive behaviour therapy workbook for children and young people”. He is an active researcher and is investigating the effectiveness of school based CBT and how CBT can be supported and facilitated by the use of technology. He regularly present workshops at national and international meetings.
