Disentangling the developmental and conceptual links between emotion dysregulation, self-regulation and internalizing and externalizing difficulties in childhood: a longitudinal investigationDownload
There is a close association between emotion regulation and mental ill-health but how they influence each other over time is unclear. The close association between the constructs also raises the question of how conceptually distinct or similar they are. We use data from the UK Millennium Cohort Study to investigate temporal and conceptual relationships between emotion regulation and mental health difficulties in childhood.

Wellbeing while waiting evaluating social prescribing in CAMHS: study protocol for a hybrid type II implementation-effectiveness studyDownload the open access paper
Social prescribing is a mechanism of connecting patients with non-medical forms of support within the community and has been shown to improve mental health and wellbeing in adult populations. In the last few years, it has been used in child and youth settings with promising results. Currently, pathways are being developed for social prescribing in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) to support children and young people on treatment waiting lists. The Wellbeing While Waiting study will evaluate whether social prescribing benefits the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. Authors: Fancourt, D., Burton. A, Bu. F, Deighton.

Enhancing mental health and well-being outcomes for psychotherapy and counselling through idiographic analysis: A four-quadrant approachDownload the open access paper
The analysis of personalised measures, such as goals, can be explored in a number of ways to meet the needs of exploring outcomes in the room with the client on a one-to-one level, but also any requirements of aggregating the scores up to explore service evaluation. We came up with four quadrants of analysis to illustrate the main ways we suggest the data can be considered. We used goal based outcomes as our worked example. The four quadrants are: 1. Individual goal progress on single goals 2. Individual goal progress by aggregated goals 3. Team/service level progress by goal theme 4. Team/service level progress by aggregate goal scores Authors: Jacob, J., Rae, J. P., Allegranti, B., Duncan, C. & Cooper, M.
