AD4E Event: Working with children & young people; – with psychiatrist Prof Sami Timimi

Do you work with children and young people?
Are you concerned about the increasingly medicalised way we are, as a culture, responding to the distress of children & young people?
In this AD4E workshop Child & Adolescent psychiatrist, Professor Sami Timimi will discuss several important themes around the labelling of young people’s distress within a ‘mental health, illness, disorder’ paradigm that sends out a message to young people that something is wrong with them/inside of them.
Sami will talk about the devastating impact of this on young people and offer some ideas to help counsellors, psychotherapists and supporters empower the young people they are working with.

MITUK’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for fundamentally re-thinking theory and practice in the field of mental health in the UK, and promoting positive change. We believe that the current diagnostically-based paradigm of care has comprehensively failed, and that the future lies in non-medical alternatives which explicitly acknowledge the causal role of social and relational conflicts, abuses, adversities and injustices.
