Webinar

Responding To the Mental Health of School Aged Children

Venue: Online

Time: 7.00–8.30 pm (AEDT)

Price: RACGP Members: Free | Non-members: $95

In collaboration with Emerging Minds

The 2015 Young Minds Matter survey showed that 13.6% of Australian children between four and eleven years old met the criteria for at least one mental health disorder. These mental health conditions are linked with a range of problems in adolescence and early adulthood including unemployment, poor education outcomes, poor physical health, drug and alcohol use and suicide. The ability of GPs to assess issues for school aged children is critical.


This webinar examines the kinds of issues that school aged children present with, how these issues can be affected by adverse family or schooling circumstances, and how GPs can open up helpful and supportive conversations with children and parents.

Webinar

The Effects of Trauma on Children’s Mental Health

Venue: Online

Time: 7.00–8.30 pm (AEST)

Price: RACGP Members: Free | Non-members: $95

In collaboration with Emerging Minds

A child’s psychological recovery from experiences of trauma, loss and other adverse experiences is often dependent on their network of supportive and nurturing relationships. Mental health difficulties can be exacerbated by lack of access to support mechanisms that help children make sense of what has happened to them. A GPs role is often pivotal in supporting the establishment of these networks, particularly for children who are socially and economic isolated or who have problematic relationships with the adults in their lives.


This webinar examines frameworks that GPs use to remain curious about the circumstances of children who have been affected by trauma, while establishing support networks that assist in recovery.
