Alfred is back after two years
In the last two years I moved job from West Sussex to Wiltshire, where I am specialising in Eating Disorders and more complex cases of depression, which often have child protection issues.
In the last two years we completed and depression audit, thought about the family is its of the impact study and thought more creatively about research that will focus more on the benefits of exercise and diet and the pursuit of personal goals comparison to medication.
In the depression audit of over one hundred cases we discovered that 80% did not gain prompt access to psychological therapy within three months. The Impact Study of 2016 informs us that maybe the therapeutic alliance with the young person is more important that modality of the therapy.
Discussion of the Impact Study will be the subject of the next blog.
