About the Speaker: Dr Quentin Spender

Dr Spender worked as an NHS Consultant Psychiatrist from 1995 until 2018, including seven years as a Consultant in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry in Wolverhampton; and 11 years in Chichester, during which he was also a Senior Lecturer at St George’s Medical School (London).  He is also a fully qualified Family Therapist.

With several co-authors, Dr Spender published a textbook in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry: the first edition in 2001, and the second in 2011.  He has participated in research on the treatment of Conduct Disorder and ADHD.  Dr Spender has worked closely with Paediatricians in a number of ways, including taking the lead in a learning programme for the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.  Known as the ‘Child in Mind’ Project, this aimed to give Paediatricians in training a grounding in Paediatric Mental Health.

Dr Spender is very experienced at doing thorough assessments.  As a Family Therapist, he is used to exploring issues through talking, either with several people from the same family, or one person.  Treatment options include continuing these discussions in various forms, and/or a trial of medication.  Referral for targeted talking therapy, such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), may be necessary.
