A comprehensive range of services for young people requiring more intensive mental health services is being developed and this book explores what works in Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) at this level. Specialist Mental Healthcare for Children and Young Peoplelooks at intensive outpatient and community services; assertive outreach teams; inpatient residential and secure provision; or other highly specialised assessment, consultation and intervention services. Based on the best available evidence, each chapter provides research summaries and an overview of available treatments. It outlines emerging good practice guidance, service models, assessment, and training and workforce development requirements. Case studies and the views of children, young people and their families or carers are incorporated throughout. This accessible text is essential reading for professionals including psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, therapists, social workers and teachers working in specialist CAMHS services, as well as all those studying for qualifications in child and adolescent mental health.
