FICAPS 10th Annual Conference: Transition

Monday 15th October 2018 at BPS Offices, London

Adolescence is a time of change; growth of brain and body, a developing sense of self, a shift from family to friends and a progression through childhood to adult independence. As a distinct developmental stage it brings inherent opportunities and challenges, and is the most common time for mental health difficulties to begin. During this period of flux, admission to inpatient mental health facilities delivers even more change; transition from community to ward-care, transition to adult services and transition out of hospital again. In staff teams, occupying multiple roles is familiar to most and moving between these can be tricky; balancing different approaches and styles; trying to honour the same values when the activities are quite different. In its 70th year, the NHS itself has endured more change than most could envisage possible, transitioning from one strategy to another, with little space for stability. For our 10th annual conference, we will convene a range of key note presentations and workshops to explore psychological perspectives on transition in a range of forms; bringing together insights from research, lived experience, evidence-based approaches and clinical practice. Join us to share insights, ideas and innovations.

Who is this conference intended for?

For all Clinical Psychologists (including Assistants and Trainees) working in or with Inpatient CAMHS
