The Foundation has announced this autumn they will be working with Dr Sean Cross, who will deliver a one day course about mental disorders and psychology.
“We’re thrilled Dr Sean Cross is able to join us and lend his wealth of expertise to our training provision. We admire his work within the world of psychiatry and look forward to participating on this mental health update for students, counsellors, mental health professionals and psychotherapists”.
Noel Hargrave, Clinical Director
What does modern psychiatry look like today? The world of therapy and psychiatry were once closely aligned but now many therapists can have little or no knowledge of modern psychiatry despite the fact that clients may have a psychiatric history or diagnosed disorder.
Make a date to join The Counselling Foundation in London on Saturday 12 November 9.30am – 4.00pm for their CPD workshop with Dr Sean Cross, where he takes a look at:
- Psychiatry history, disorder classification and symptom run through
- Risk assessment and management with self-harm and suicidal ideation case examples
- The Mental Health Act & Mental Capacity Act with case examples
- Mental health medications – information for counsellors
- Mental Health services inside and outside the NHS with case work examples
Sean Cross is a leading consultant psychiatrist in the NHS. He is employed by South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, the largest mental health service provider in the UK, working at St Thomas’ and King’s College hospitals. His main areas of interest are emergency crisis resolution for patients and the complex interplay between mental and physical wellbeing.
In addition to this clinical work, he has a significant education and training role for both medical and non-medical training in his organization. In 2012 he won the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ national ‘Trainer of the Year’ award.
