We are delighted to be hosting our next educational event in York on 16th October, considering behaviours that challenge in a specialist residential setting.

This half day session will explore:

  • The behaviours that might be considered challenging in a residential setting working with young adults with complex mental health presentations.
  • The functions of these challenging behaviours for our young people.
  • Consideration of key elements of the model of care at Care in Mind and how they work together to support management of challenging behaviours, including; Safewards for Safehomes; Structured Clinical Management (SCM-A), Therapeutic Risk Management, Boundary See-Saw and Staff Support & Reflective Practice.

The event will be interactive and will allow professionals working with individuals with complex mental health presentations to learn and share experiences and best practice.

The event is aimed at commissioners, social workers, care coordinators, mental health practitioners and other professionals working with young adults with complex mental health presentations. Attendance certificates will be issued at the end of the session.
