Sleep difficulties are common in children and adolescents, especially in some high-risk groups, such as young people with developmental difficulties or mental health problems. Clinicians working in paediatric or child mental health settings need an understanding of sleep disorders. It is important to know how sleep disturbance impacts on a young person’s physical and cognitive development, and mental health.
The ACAMH Ireland Branch presents an insightful and engaging event on Sleep and Mental Health. This all day conference presents you with the perfect opportunity to increase your understanding of the topic through a series of lectures and presentations.
Understand the physiology of sleep and how it changes over time and in different contexts
Understand the relationship between sleep, behaviour and mental health.
Understand the principles of management and the adaptations that may be required to these.
