Go To Webinar
hints and tips
Welcome to Dorset CAMHS Go To Webinars. You have been referred as your CAMHS care coordinator has identified this as a helpful tool for you. A webinar is a digital workshop facilitated by CAMHS practitioners. You will be able to see and hear them, but no one will be able to see or hear you. You can interact as much or as little as you like in the webinar, via the questions box. These messages are private and can only be seen by the facilitators. There is a workbook that goes alongside the webinar to help you put the strategies into action. Your CAMHS care coordinator will follow up to check your progress and offer support with the strategies.
Please read the following top-tips and guidance:
- Before starting, print the workbook to follow along with the activities. If you do not have access to a printer, please inform your CAMHS team, so that a workbook may be posted to you.
- Try to find a quiet and private space to attend the webinar.
- Make sure you have everything you need; a fully charged device, notepad and pen to take notes. You may wish to use headphones for extra privacy.
- Where possible, use WiFi to access the webinar. Switch off Alexa, Siri or any other devices that may be recording.
- Allow up to 90 minutes to attend the webinar. You may take breaks if needed. A recording of the webinar will be sent following the webinar, which you can watch as often as you like. You must attend in order to receive the recording.
- Consider whether you would like to attend the webinar alone or with someone you trust, such as a parent or carer. It can be useful to share the information with others so that they can support you with the strategies. If you decide to include someone else, think about what you are happy to discuss and share with them.
- Check out the links at the back of the workbook for some helpful websites and apps.
- For the best possible results, practice the strategies regularly. Remember to be patient, as learning new skills takes time.
- If you have any questions about the webinar or need extra support, please contact your CAMHS team.
