March 2002

No 54  

A new course in Child Mental Health at the University of Leicester has proved immensely popular and is fully booked until 2004.

March 7th 2002 sees the launch of the Masters/Diploma/Certificate in Child Mental Health run by the Division of Child Psychiatry based at the Greenwood Institute of Child Health.

This is an exciting new opportunity to provide training for a range of professionals who work with children and young people. The course offers:

·        A theoretical introduction to child mental health and other key issues relevant to primary child mental health

·        Theoretical background supported by clinical relevance to improve the delivery of clinical care especially in areas which are major components of the child primary mental worker role

·        An opportunity to learn in a multidisciplinary forum with tutors from a range of clinical and academic backgrounds.

Dr Nisha Dogra, Senior Lecturer at the Greenwood Institute of Child Health, University of Leicester, said: “We hope that through the delivery of this course that professionals will receive an enjoyable and clinically relevant learning experience.  This in turn should impart on the delivery of mental health services to children and young people. The Greenwood Institute is looking forward to the start of this programme.”

Details of the course can be accessed via the Greenwood website www.le.ac.uk/greenwood. Places for this course are now full and the next course is due to run from 2004.
