Trauma, Anxiety and Depression (TAD) Clinic


Care options

Care option: Assessment

Unit: Per assessment

Description: In preparation for the assessment, the families are asked to complete a comprehensive online screening questionnaire and the clinicians review all available material. The face-to-face assessment led by specialist clinical psychologists and a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist involves both joint and individual interviews with the young person and the parents or carers. The assessment generally takes place in our clinic at the Maudsley hospital but we are also able to offer off-site assessments if required. The assessment session includes a semi-structured diagnostic interview for ICD-10 and DSM-IV disorders, and standardised self- and parent-reported measures of symptoms and functionality. A specialist report detailing the diagnostic formulation and the treatment recommendations is provided. Assessment can be with the view to providing treatment in the clinic or as a specialist second opinion assessment to inform care planning in local services.



Care option: Treatment

Unit: Per session

Description: Treatment provision includes both psychology sessions and medication review sessions. Standard treatment packages include 12 to 25 weekly one-hour psychology sessions and medication review sessions as required. However, we are able to tailor length and frequency of individual sessions and the overall duration of treatment based on clinical needs. Psychological treatment is provided by clinical psychologists specialising in cognitive and behavioural approaches, who are also clinical researchers and CBT trainers. Pharmacological treatment is provided or supervised by a consultant child & adolescent psychiatrist, who is an expert in psychopharmacological approaches to treatment-resistant anxiety disorders and trauma-related psychopathology.
