Educational Committee Programs
The IACAPAP Educational Committee has two key strategic objectives:
- To facilitate the establishment of regional research and training facilities for child and adolescent mental health (CAMH) professionals in areas where there is currently no formal training
- To facilitate partnerships between facilities in developed and developing countries for education and training of CAMH professionals, research collaborations and CAMH service development
In order to reach the above mentioned objectives, the Committee is currently conducting an international survey to assess priority training needs of CAMH professionals in various regions of the world and to explore potential mechanisms that can be used to strengthen international research collaborations particularly in low resource settings.
The survey’s findings will inform the development of a series of multimedia courses that will be available online on the IACAPAP web page. In addition, a network of experts willing to collaborate with professionals or trainees in developing countries will be set up.
