The CWP and EMHP Handbook Summary

The CWP and EMHP Handbook: CBT Essentials with Children and Young People by Hugh Miller

As an Education Mental Health Practitioner (EMHP) or Children's Wellbeing Practitioner (CWP), you have to think on your feet, manage a caseload, deal with emotional distress and try and not get indigestion as you cram down a sandwich on your way to your next session.
This down-to-earth survival guide helps trainees and newly qualified practitioners cope with the stressful demands of these new and challenging roles. Full of case examples and practical tools and strategies, this book will give you the confidence to assess, set goals, and deliver effective interventions for anxiety and depression. It also provides invaluable support on tricky topics such as disclosures of risk and safeguarding issues, working effectively with parents, dealing with resistance and conflict, caring for yourself, and signposting when a situation is outside the remit of your role.

The CWP and EMHP Handbook Reviews

This book will be invaluable to anyone training or practising as a CWP or EMHP. It is full of practical tips for implementing evidence based approaches within the realities of clinical practice. Perhaps most importantly, as you read it you will feel like you are being helped along by a wonderfully supportive and considerate friend. A must read! -- Professor Cathy Creswell, Oxford University - co-author of 'Overcoming Your Child's Fears and Worries'
This is a much-needed book to empower those wanting to enter psychological professions to do so in a confident and productive way. The author and contributors are to be congratulated for providing a useful tool to help us in our ambitious journey to create a world where all children and families are supported to effectively build on their strength and achieve their full potential. -- Professor Peter Fonagy OBE, CEO of the Anna Freud Centre
This really is the ultimate low intensity CBT practitioner's handbook. It pulls all the elements of effective clinical work together in one place and offers helpful reflections and practice tasks. Most importantly it's an easy and engaging read with lots of real-life references. I will recommend this to all CWP and EHMPs that I cross paths with. -- Ellie Harris, Children's Wellbeing Practitioner, Supervisor, and Referral Hub Team Manager, Ormiston Families
A wonderfully comprehensive guide for well-being practitioners who are working with young people in schools and community settings - based on rich experience and interwoven with the voices of many experts and grounded in research findings. Hugh makes superb use of not only narrative writing, but also of examples, suggested role plays, self-reflective exercises and visual illustrations, all underpinned by a pragmatic realism and a good dose of humour. -- Dr Maria Loades, Senior Lecturer and Clinical Tutor for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme, Bath University
This is a vital contribution towards establishing the identity of the developing early intervention workforce. It's blend of practical advice, tools to try and application of lessons learned mean it will be of immeasurable value to CWPs and EMHPs and those who support them. I will be recommending this to supervisors (as well as trainees) as essential reading. -- Lynsey Roocroft, Lecturer in Child and Adolescent Mental Health and EMHP Course Lead, Edge Hill University
If only this had been available during my training year! Now I'm qualified, it's been so handy to be able to dip in and out of this guide as I consolidate my learning and fill in those inevitable gaps that come with information overload during that first year of training. As an EMHP in a brand new Mental Health Support Team It is so comforting to read such a wealth of advice and tips from those who've been there and done it. This book provides the 'why' and the 'how' of good practise together in an easily accessible, humorous and encouraging guide. A must read for trainees and qualified practitioners alike! -- Suzanne Everill, Education Mental Health Practitioner, Worcester NHS Trust
This will be a precious resource to the many CWPs and EMHPs at the forefront of the vital new workforce supporting children and young people's wellbeing. The friendly and accessible style and good advice make the book a go-to companion. It is exactly what's needed to support effective clinical practice, during and after training. -- Dr Susanna Payne, Co-director of CYP-MH Trainings at Kings College London
A really helpful reference guide to inform this new role supporting Children and Young people's mental health. It's great to support learning for those wanting to get into this role and as a reference point throughout the training year, adhering to the low intensity principles, as expected. -- Sarah Monk, EMHP Programme Director, University of Southampton
