Event description
This workshop will explore the benefits and barriers to engaging families and others in the treatment of young people with mental ill-health

About this Event

The impact of mental ill-health on young people can be wide reaching. Family members and friends of young people with mental ill-health often report feeling burdened, stressed and overwhelmed and that they struggle to be included in the care and treatment of their loved one. Evidence suggests that family work can enhance family involvement and support during the recovery phases, reduce rates of relapse, readmission to hospital and enhance adherence and engagement with services whilst also reducing family/carer burden and stress. This interactive workshop will combine didactic elements, multimedia case material, and skills-based work to provide participants with an opportunity to practise family work skills in a safe learning environment.

At the completion of this workshop you will be able to:

• Articulate the purpose and rationale of family work in treatment with reference to the Pyramid of Family Care

• Identify where family work fits in to a young person’s treatment plan

• Discuss challenges and constraints that may arise when implementing family work with this complex client group

• Engage families early on in the treatment of their young person

• Develop and implement family work within a collaborative framework in which the clinician, other members of the treating team and the family work in partnership

• Practice family work skills in a safe learning environment
