About the course

Ocd & bdd training

This is a one-day online simulation course aimed at mental health practitioners who have recently started working in CAMHS, to include mental health nurses, social workers, occupational therapists and other multidisciplinary team members. It focuses on the assessment and management of young people in the community and crisis/liaison setting.

Participants will be involved in a series of interactive simulated scenarios using specially trained actors. Following each scenario, the facilitators lead a group debrief to support participants to reflect on the scenario and to collectively learn from the experience.

The fusion of Education and the Health Service is extremely exciting and now indeed essential; I am thrilled that St Mary’s is at the forefront of this. I am truly invigorated to disseminate many nuggets of wisdom and tangible strategies gained yesterday to my entire school community.

The knowledge and skills help children in many areas e.g. friendships, learning, attitude, dealing with problems at home and school. Skills will stay with them as they progress helping them to be reflective and emotionally resilient.
