A Reflective Checklist for Child Mental Health Professionals who Prescribe Psychotropic Medicines Endorsed by the Division of Educational and Child Psychology Division Committee of the BPS in June 2016 and subsequently by Professor Peter Kinderman, the then President of the British Psychological Society (See enclosed letter)
4) Professor Peter Kinderman - President of the BPS 2016-17 stated -
5) This Reflective Checklist designed by Dave Traxson endorsed by the BPS Division of Educational & Child Psychology (amongst several notable others) is an excellent resource. It is targeted for use by those who prescribe psychotropic meds to children. However, I suggest it can also be used by educational & psychological professionals who are responsible for determining and/or implementing interventions for children. We need to stop assuming the source of the problem lies within the child and checklists like this challenge this assumption. Granted, this will make for some more uncomfortable conversations."
