Module overview

Trainees will work with a range of presenting problems typical of the service and informed by the guidelines produced by the relevant special interest group. Skills development will include engaging with wider systems that may include children, adolescents and awareness of adaptations of style and content which may be required including taking issues related to the power differential into account. They will gain experience of evaluating, selecting and using a range of assessment instruments appropriate to the client group. Formulation skills will be further developed taking into account the gender, class, culture and beliefs of their clients and their families/systems. Trainees will develop knowledge and critical appraisal of evidence-based interventions from a range of models including neuropsychological, behavioural, cognitive behavioural and systemic to plan and implement interventions for a range of emotional, behavioural and learning difficulties presented by the members of systems and/or children and their families referred to services. They will evaluate outcomes and reflect on the effectiveness of their interventions within this context. The trainee is expected to attend the placement in person but also may be required to work in other placement settings or remotely.
