Overview Updated 06/02/2020

PWPs support Children and Young People with Common Mental Health problems (such as anxiety and depression) using evidence based Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approaches. Low-intensity CBT places a greater emphasis on parent and CYP self-management and are designed to be less burdensome and intensive for families than traditional psychological therapies. The overall delivery of these interventions is informed by behaviour change models and strategies.

You can contact a member of the IAPT team if you require more information.
