New training and service expansion opportunities

Enhanced Evidence-Based Practice Training Expressions of interest are now open for the Free EEBP course - a one year training beginning in April 2017 that provides training for current staff in brief therapeutic interventions for children and adolescents with mild-to-moderate anxiety or depression. Salary support is available.

CYP IAPT Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) 16 services have submitted bids to expand their workforce with new PWP roles. These new roles include a one year training course with KCL or UCL in brief evidence based interventions for anxiety and depression, as well as parent training for behavioural problems. PWPs in CAMHS services will be integrated into multidisciplinary teams in order to expand the number of CYP being seen by services.

Implementation Groups Update



The Participation Workers Group met on the 10th November. The group heard updates on the latest participation work taking place across the Collaborative, and shared tips for increasing engagement with involvement work in services. We went through a demonstration of the hackathon apps and encouraged attendees to use the products in their service.
The next PWG meeting  is Thursday, 12th January - details TBC.
The LAC group met on 21st September in a new combined meeting format with CPLACC (Clinical Psychologists working with Looked After and Adopted Children). The group heard presentations from Martina Paglia, about her research and recommendations for outcome measurement for LAC and out of area placement strategy, and Matt Woolgar about Attachment in Practice. After this, the session continued previous work aiming to arrive at recommendations for use of outcome measures in direct work and consultation and a statement about therapeutic work with LAC.
The next LAC meeting will be 25th January - details TBC.

The Data Meeting on 23rd June 2016 included presentations about data quality from Lambeth & Southwark, a walk through of one of the Hackathon 'How am I doing'app, an update from the CYP Mental Health Outcomes Expert Advisory Group and MHSDS so far, as well as an overview of a new pan London NHS dashboard.

The last Under 5s group in September saw the launch of the Under 5s CYP IAPT training course, as well as presentations about the Early Intervention Foundation review of early years interventions and transformation in perinatal services. The group set to work in the afternoon, deliberating measures that might be included in a recommended measures set for Under 5's services. This piece of work is still ongoing and will be continued at the next meeting.
The next Under 5's meeting will be in January

Learning Disabilities (LD)

The last LD implementation group pushed itself to come up with a consensus on guidance for measures to use for outcomes monitoring across LD services  - the group produced a 'product' that has gained traction at a regional national level being presented at the CAMHS nation conference earlier in the year and presented to commissioners across London a Healthy London Partnership event - copies of the LD outcomes guidance can be found here.
The next LD meeting is TBC
