‘The Centre for Attention Learning and Memory (CALM)’ – In conversation Dr. Joni Holmes

May 20, 03:28 PM

In this podcast we speak to the head of The Centre for Attention Learning and Memory (CALM) Dr. Joni Holmes, at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, at the University of Cambridge. Joni discusses the main aims of CALM, the research they have conducted, and the implications for identifying children’s mental health needs.
Joni draws attention to a shift away from diagnostic centred approaches towards child centred approaches, adding that we need to assess individuals strengths and difficulties, and use those to form interventions.
