Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The ‘Every Child Matters’(ECM) framework was established to promote a multi-agency approach towards the well-being and safety of children.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the 'Every Child Matters' (ECM) framework was indeed established to promote a multi-agency approach towards the well-being and safety of children. This framework was introduced in the United Kingdom in 2003 and aimed to ensure that every child had the support they needed to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution, and achieve economic well-being. It emphasized collaboration and coordination among different agencies, such as education, health, social services, and the police, to provide holistic support to children and promote their overall well-being.

    Explanation
    Child Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) is the correct answer because it specifically focuses on improving the emotional health and well-being of children and young adults. CAMHS provides a range of mental health services, including assessment, diagnosis, and treatment, to support young individuals in managing their emotional and psychological difficulties. By offering targeted interventions and support, CAMHS aims to enhance the overall mental well-being of children and young adults, ensuring they receive the necessary care and assistance to thrive emotionally.

    The intervention and treatment for children experiencing mental health disorders varies according to the individual and the disorder. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the intervention and treatment for children with mental health disorders are not a one-size-fits-all approach. Each child's needs and the specific disorder they are experiencing will determine the appropriate intervention and treatment. Different disorders may require different therapeutic techniques, medications, or a combination of both. Additionally, the severity of the disorder and the child's individual circumstances will also impact the intervention and treatment plan. Therefore, it is essential to tailor the approach to each child's unique needs.

    Children with the benefit of a secure attachment or a secure base substitute can experience difficulties with adjustment to a change in their circumstances.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Children with the benefit of a secure attachment or a secure base substitute are actually more likely to have an easier time adjusting to changes in their circumstances. A secure attachment provides a sense of safety and support, which allows children to feel more confident and resilient when faced with new situations or changes. They are more likely to have better coping skills and be able to adapt to changes more effectively. Therefore, the statement that children with secure attachments experience difficulties with adjustment to a change in their circumstances is false.

    • A.

      True

    Anxiety is a perfectly normal and advantageous response. It is a natural reaction to stress or danger, helping individuals stay alert and focused.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The behavioural symptoms of depression in children relates highly to maternal sensitivity, their mother’s response to the child in early infancy. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that research has shown a strong connection between maternal sensitivity, or the mother's response to the child in early infancy, and the behavioural symptoms of depression in children. Maternal sensitivity refers to the mother's ability to understand and respond appropriately to her child's needs, emotions, and cues. When a mother is consistently responsive and sensitive to her child's needs, it promotes healthy emotional development and reduces the risk of depression in the child. Conversely, when a mother is less sensitive or unresponsive to her child's needs, it can contribute to the development of behavioural symptoms of depression in the child.
