Buildings where CAMHS training is delivered

About our training offer

CAMHS multi-agency training is a key contributor to developing a high quality and appropriately trained workforce across Sheffield and beyond.

A well-trained and supported workforce is key to delivering effective services to the children and young people we meet.

We offer specifically designed training to meet the needs of Sheffield services within the key aims of the workforce development strategy with a shared identity and vision; common values and language; behaviours focused on outcomes for children.

CAMHS multi-agency training works within the stated CAMHS workforce competencies.

The offer is tailored to the needs prioritised by the Children’s Workforce and is designed to equip them to respond to the challenges they are facing. It will be updated based on annual survey responses from the Children’s Workforce and professionals are encouraged to influence content.

Our training team

Our training days are facilitated by enthusiastic and exceptional CAMHS clinicians and trainers who deliver sessions on a variety of subject areas.

Our skilled training team involves CAMHS Nurses, Psychiatrists, Primary Mental Health Workers, Psychologists, Art Psychotherapists and Family Therapists, amongst other specialist professionals, in the design and delivery of the programme.  We invite other professionals and parents/carers to assist us with the delivery of the training days as appropriate.

Each Study Day is tailored to bring you a unique learning experience and allows you to develop your therapeutic skills and build your knowledge to apply to your day-to-day work with children, young people and their families.

Our Study Days are reviewed regularly to ensure that our trainees are kept up-date with the latest information and that the content meets current need.

Aims of training

Delivering this training, we hope to build the capacity of universal services to meet mental health needs of children and families by:

  • Building understanding of the incidence, prevalence and presentation of common mental health problems
  • Developing workers’ core common competencies of active listening, engagement, alliance building, information giving, shared decision making and reflective practice
  • Developing family resilience, self-esteem, and self-reliance through the provision of information and support from evidence-based interventions
  • Building understanding of the process of therapeutic support to offer low intensity models of intervention
  • Developing workers’ competencies in the delivery of evidence-based family and behavioural interventions, and the use of reflective practice to inform their work
  • Growing understanding and awareness of the complexity of children’s, young peoples’ and families’ health, educational and social needs and the services available
  • Helping professionals recognise when it is appropriate to seek further advice or signpost clients to other services or specialist CAMHS.
