About the event


This event is open to all interested in and working with this client group. Given the particular needs of this group and the wider systemic issues, it is crucial that CAPTs and other disciplines come together to share ideas and experience to best develop work and thinking in this area.


At the event we will:

  • Discuss the complexities working with this patient group entails
  • Consider what practitioners may need to think about outside of main clinical aspects
  • Provide support for practitioners to best meet the needs of the child/young person
  • Provide insight and an analytic frame to the therapeutic and emotional needs of this patient group

Explore some of the clinical themes emerging from this patient group
