Module overview

EHMPs will need to develop and awareness of emerging mental health difficulties in education settings and be able to intervene with parents / carer and school staff in these settings. Three key intervention skills will be taught in this module:

The first core skill will be consultation skills. EMHPs will be expected to advise and support teachers and other school and college staff about the psychological effects of common problems in children and adolescents. Process consultation skills will provide a framework for the EMHP to offer consultation to staff in relation to specific groups of children or young people, or in relation to individual children. EHMHs will need to demonstrate competency in this area.
