Recent NSCAP research projects include:

  • Development of a methodologically robust, quantitative and qualitative service evaluation protocol for collecting pre- and post-course data to evaluate NSCAP’s training, systematically and comparatively.
  • A scoping study, funded by National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Research Capability Funding (RCF) from Leeds Partnership Foundation Trust, undertaken in 2012, in five Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) clinics on children aged 5-11 with conduct disorders, in preparation for an NIHR Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) grant application for a feasibility study on child psychotherapy v. treatment as usual for children with conduct disorders and their primary carers. Please see Edginton (2013) and Edginton and Twiddy (forthcoming).
