How to talk to children about their difficulties and behaviour

In our CAMHS training we are taught how difficult it is to get it right first time, and how important it is to trust our own experience and feelings. Children can be very skilled at stirring up difficult feelings in the adults that care about them as a means of communicating. Taking notice of the feelings they generate in us can be important information.

If you feel difficulties have got beyond what is manageable within the classroom, then visit the NHS Camden website for more information on how we can support you. Camden CAMHS consists of a number of services in Camden for children, young people, their families and carers who are experiencing emotional, behavioural and mental health problems.
