Webinar

Preventing Mental Health Issues for Infants and Children

Venue: Online

Time: 7.00–8.30 pm (AEDT)

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

In collaboration with Emerging Minds

General practice is routinely the first point of contact when a parent has concerns about their child’s behaviours or social and emotional wellbeing. Sometimes GPs might begin to develop concerns about children’s wellbeing, through conversations with parents. Establishing positive relationships with parents helps GPs gain insight into the child’s world so that the right support can be provided at the right time.


This webinar provides a focus on GPs parent engagement practice as a preventative strategy. Using case studies from Emerging Minds’ eLearning content, GPs will describe the use of engagement in their practice in ways that enable parents’ to describe their concerns for their children’s physical and mental health.

Webinar

Responding To the Mental Health Needs of Infants & Toddlers

Venue: Online

Time: 7.00–8.30 pm (AEDT)

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

In collaboration with Emerging Minds

A significant number of infants and toddlers in Australia are not recognised as having mental health vulnerabilities or difficulties. The question of infant and toddler mental health presentations is one that continues to challenge GPs, particularly those working with families experiencing adversity.

This webinar examines presentations of mental health difficulties in infants and toddlers from newborns to three years of age. It explores GPs interactions with infants and toddlers and parents in ways that effectively support co-ordinated service responses.

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.
