Managing transitions from CAMHS for people with autism
Transitions from CAMHS services to adult mental health care present a challenge to patients, carers, and professionals alike and are often managed poorly by services, leading to avoidable anxiety and adverse experiences for service users. For patients with autism, transitions can be extremely distressing and require careful consideration and planning to ensure continuity of care throughout. There is a lack of clarity, both for professionals and services users, about what resources are available and appropriate for people with autism.
These courses aim to demystify autism for professionals working in both CAMHS and adult mental health and introduce strategies to improve the way in which teams manage transitions and the care of people with autism generally.
Maudsley Learning, in association with the ESTIA Centre, offer a 1-day Masterclass covering both Tier 1 competencies and advanced topics, in addition to a 1-day Simulation course in which practitioners will be able to apply the knowledge they’ve gained in realistic scenarios.
- Understand autism from a clinical perspective and an autistic person’s lived experience
- Apply person-centered strategies to support people with autism in mental health settings
- Mitigate the difficulties faced by autistic people during child to adult transitions
- Implement strategies to improve the care of co-morbid mental and physical illness in people with autism
