Organised by the University of Plymouth's Community and Primary Care Research Group and PenCLAHRC, this interactive session will share evidence-based training materials from two in-depth research studies developed in partnership with practices and community members to assist health professionals in providing effective support for patients experiencing poverty-related distress and mental health problems.

Key learning opportunities

  • Making the most effective use of consultation time
  • How to build trust with people who see themselves as undeserving
  • How to create individualised bio-psycho-social assessments to complement diagnosis and inform decisions about social interventions
  • How to empower individuals with social causes of low mood and anxiety who may see medication as the main answer.

This free event (which will include reflective learning support for CPD) has limited spaces and registration is essential. Email S.Hughes@exeter.ac.uk or call 07792 256421 for any queries.
