This webinar examined Emerging Minds’ work, focusing on how practitioners and services can develop consistent and engaging child-focused practice.

If the social and emotional wellbeing of children is to be everyone’s business, then consistent, cross-sector practices need to be employed in adult- and child-focused services. In this webinar, Brad Morgan, Emerging Minds’ Director, and Helen Francis, Emerging Minds’ National to Local Manager, described how Emerging Minds works across sectors to identify effective practice, and to support practice development that improves the early identification and prevention of child mental health issues. They explained the suite of resources that Emerging Minds produces, and how these can help practitioners and organisations to develop child-focused and parent-sensitive practice.

Jaisen Mahne, Emerging Minds’ child and family practitioner, discussed his experience of service delivery, examples where practitioners have provided child-focused service provision, and examples where opportunities were missed.
