A resource for people working with children and young people

Post by miriam » Sat Oct 25, 2008 6:52 pm

http://www.handsonscotland.co.uk/ is an online resource for anybody working with children and young people. The website provides practical information and techniques on how to respond helpfully to children and young people's troubling behaviour, build up their self-esteem and promote their positive mental wellbeing.

The website contains 48 topics within 14 sections that cover a wide range of mental health issues ranging from abuse to sleeping difficulties. There are also 25 sets of videos from specialists giving tips and advice. The site is continually evolving: each section has a feedback form, and comments from these forms have resulted in the website team adding or changing information and advice.

A post-launch evaluation has been completed. Overall, the feedback was positive, and all workers in the study reported that they would use the website again in the future as well as recommend it to others. The evaluation also showed that over 2-3 months of using the website, the workers increased their understanding of troubling behaviours and their confidence increased. They also reported feeling more supported in their work.

The website was commissioned by the Scottish government through HeadsUpScotland and was developed by Playfield Institute (NHS Fife) in partnership with Barnardo's and the University of Dundee.
