Helping People with Multiple Needs – Working with young people with Substance Use Problems: the AMBIT approach
- 1 hour
About this course
This is the ninth webinar for the Helping People with Multiple Needs community of practice. It is open to anyone working in health, social care, youth services, justice and education settings, including anyone trained or interested in AMBIT (Adaptive Mentalization Based Integrative Treatment). In this webinar we are turning our minds to what will happen after lockdown eases, and the challenges that face teams in adapting again after a long period that has bought such a mixture of changes in our lives, some of which have been hugely traumatic.
This webinar will be led by Peter Fuggle, one of the AMBIT Team at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and Verity Beehan who leads a community based substance use team in Cambridge called CASUS. The CASUS team are one of the original sites for developing the AMBIT approach and have been working with this model for the last ten years. The team have achieved very positive outcomes for their client group, particularly in relation to addressing the multiple life problems that these young people present with. The webinar will begin with a brief introduction to AMBIT and will then illustrate how this framework has been used in the CASUS team. This will involve a conversation between Peter and Verity to be followed by opportunities for questions and discussion. We look forward to you joining us for this last webinar before the summer break.
We hope that many of you will be able to join us for this webinar. There will be a Q & A at the end which is an opportunity to share your experiences and learn about those of others.
