Susannah Lancaster, a Practitioner for our Healthy Minds Lincolnshire service who works in our Lincoln team, was shortlisted as a finalist for the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT) Awards for Excellence.
The category of this shortlist was the APT Reinforce Appropriate, Implode Disruptive (RAID) Award for Excellence in Working with Challenging Behaviour, and comes in regonition of Susannah's work with children and young people.
Susannah worked with a child/young person diagnosed with Pathalogical Demand Avoidance. Within this work, she demonstrated person-centred care, adapting her sesion content and tailoring it to the service user. Susannah developed an alternative mood rating scale, using the service user's interest of horses to improve both the engagement and outcome of the treatment.
Alongside three other finalists for this category, Susannah presented a case study about her work with this particular service user during the APT Awards for Excellence conference on Thursday 24 September. The conference was held virtually, and Susannah was able to listen to other presentations, using the ceremony to further her continued professional development.
On this occasion, Susannah was unsuccessful in winning the award, but we congratulate her on the accolade of being shortlisted, and on the fantastic work which has taken place as part of this achievement.
