Minding the Gap in Child Mental Health – slides from UKCP’s 2018 conference

In April 2018, we held a conference to consider the role of innovative and applied psychotherapeutic approaches in meeting the current national scale of unmet need in child and adolescent mental health.

We aimed to showcase effective and creative psychotherapeutic work applied in a variety of settings and provide insight into alternative psychotherapeutic approaches designed to help children and young people where they are now.

Here you can find slides from workshops held at the conference.
