Good practice in working with families – keeping the whole picture in mind

Good practice in working with families – keeping the whole picture in mind

Don’t miss the latest of PMHCWN’s vibrant and innovative events aimed at highlighting key issues in working across health and social care boundaries to support the parent-child relationship.

‘Good practice in working with families – keeping the whole picture in mind’ will use keys to try and unlock ways of working with whole families and is aimed at professional working with parents with mental health problems and their families, as well as managers interested in developing think child, think parent, think family protocols following on from the SCIE guide of the same name. This study day will take place in Birmingham on Monday 5th July 2010.

The event supports the aims of Every Child Matters, the Children’s Plan, and the Think Family programme and associated initiatives, to encourage local systems and services to join up and respond to the needs of whole families. They will consider the possible implications of government plans concerning Sure Start Centres and health visitors as well as any further announcements made between now and the event.

The day will consist of plenary sessions with round table discussions and workshops including information about implementing Family Nurse Partnerships and SCIE’s guide. Speakers will include:

  • John Burnham Head of Family and Systemic Psychotherapy and Director of Systemic Training CAMHS, BCH (Birmingham Children's Hospital) on moving from paper work to paper play
  •  Hugh Constant Practice development manager, Social Care Institute for Excellence on the implementation of SCIE’s guide Think child, think parent, think family
