About the session
A panel, comprising paper author Dr. Ana Pascual-Sanchez, Imperial College London, Associate Professor of Experimental Psychology Lucy Bowes, University Oxford, and a lived experience perspective from the McPin Foundation, discussed the research and its implications with information scientist Douglas Badenoch. This discussion will be facilitated by Andre Tomlin (@Mental_Elf).
ACAMH’s vision is to be ‘Sharing best evidence, improving practice’, to this end in December 2020 we launched ‘CAMHS around the Campfire’, a free monthly virtual journal club, run in conjunction with André Tomlin. We use #CAMHScampfire on Twitter to amplify the discussion.
Each 1-hour meeting features a new piece of research, which we discuss in an informal journal club session. The focus is on critical appraisal of the research and implications for practice. Primarily targeted at CAMHS practitioners, and researchers, ‘CAMHS around the Campfire’ will be publicly accessible, free to attend, and relevant to a wider audience.
Previous sessions are listed in our Talks & Lectures section.

My research focuses on the impact of early life stress on psychological and behavioral development. In particular, my research examines the effects of bullying and maltreatment on young people’s mental health and wellbeing. My research integrates methods from social epidemiology, developmental psychology and behavioral genetics in order to understand the complex genetic and environmental influences that promote resilience to victimization and early life stress. The aim of this research is to guide intervention work by identifying protective factors that promote lifelong resilience.

I am an information scientist with an interest in making knowledge from systematic research more accessible to people who need it. This means you. I’ve been attempting this in the area of Evidence-Based Health Care since 1995. So far the results have been mixed. For some reason we expected busy clinicians to search databases and appraise papers instead of seeing patients. We also expected publishers to make the research freely available to the people who paid for it. Ha! Hence The National Elf service.
