The Scottish Branch of the Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH) will be hosting a conference in Glasgow on 8 May for practitioners working with children and young people in generic and specialised services. ‘What the Forensic? – Challenging Cases in Everyday Practice’ will give both a theoretical and practical insight into a series of key issues facing professionals. We are pleased to confirm Kibble’s Dan Johnson and Claire Reilly from the Specialist Intervention Services team will be presenting at the conference.
ACAMH supports the mental health needs of children and young people and is committed to multi-disciplinary research and practice within child and adolescent mental health. This is achieved in a number of ways including the publication of research findings, and sharing of innovative practices.
Working with young people with complex and forensic behaviour can be a challenge. Speakers at the conference will share their knowledge on a range of approaches that can be applied, and highlight specific characteristics that can cause concern. Dan will be discussing ‘Trauma Informed Forensic Formulation’ and Claire will be exploring ‘Theoretical Underpinnings of Adolescent Firesetting’. Topical issues will also be addressed including a discussion on forensic inpatient care.
