Children, young people & families

Children, young people and familiesSometimes, through no fault of their own, children and young people can find their emotions get in the way of developing and learning. Caspari Foundation is a charity that helps children, young people and families to learn to cope with and overcome these barriers.

A really interesting article from Caspari student, Esther Ford recently published in the BPS journal in which she shares some insights into educational psychotherapy along with her  thoughts on what's missing from the current education system:


Matthew D'Ancona was talking about his recent book, Post-Truth. 

On Wednesday 07 March over 70 people gathered to listen to Matthew D'Ancona give a presentation on the key issues arising from his recent book Post Truth. Introducing the evening, Jenny Dover outlined the basis of educational psychotherapy, linking her talk to the themes of the evening; children need to be able to trust the adults around them and to feel safe enough to be curious about exploring the world around them.

Matthew's thought-provoking talk encouraged a lively Q&A session which covered a wide range of topics including further discussion of the absolute relevance of educational psychotherapy to the current challenges facing all of us. 

The evening, which was, in part, a fund-raising event for Caspari, raised over £2,200 in ticket sales and donations. A big THANK YOU to all who came and to those who gave so generously.
