This module adopts a developmental and systemic approach to understanding Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH) and the recommended interventions for range of emotional and behavioural problems which can arise in childhood and adolescence.  The module will support professionals, who work directly or indirectly with children and their families to critically understand and promote social, emotional, cognitive, behavioural and family development.  It will also support professionals, to work in collaboration with children, families and in partnership with other professionals and agencies in order to provide effective care for children at different stages in their development. The module is complementary to the modules AC6729 Prevention & Early Intervention in Child and Adolescent Mental Health & AC6730 Understanding Common Presenting Problems in Child and Adolescent Mental Health..

National and International statistics identify that the prevalence of CAMH disorders is 12.5%.
