Therapeutic Work in Schools
The Caspari Foundation offers a wide range of services to children and young people, and the staff who support them.
We provide free, subsidised and paid services and programmes which support children and young people's mental health and help staff to develop their therapeutic teaching skills and reflective practice.
We offer a free annual 30 minute consultation service to all schools and institutions.
This online consultation service helps to clarify which of the programmes and services we offer would work best for your school. Please see the current programmes we offer below.
Online consultation sessions take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
One-to-one Educational Psychotherapy
We offer one-to-one Educational Psychotherapy in schools for children and young people who have a wide range of behavioural and learning difficulties.
Educational Psychotherapy is a high level specialist intervention that supports children and young people's learning. It is based on psychoanalytic and attachment theories.
It takes place in school where children and young people are seen in an environment familar to them and their families. This can avoid long waiting lists and offers a great opportunity for teachers, parents/carers and other involved agencies to work collaboratively.
There are currently three pathways to accessing this therapy. All three pathways involve an initial assessment and ongoing one-to-one Educational Psychotherapy sessions.
Small Group Work and Community Projects
We work with schools and other organisations to deliver mental health programmes which support children and young people's mental health. These programmes include EPIC, Match Fit and our new pilot programme Hear Me. These projects are aimed at supporting children and young people's mental health needs and developing staff's reflective and therapeutic teaching skills.
We are always interested in developing our outreach work in schools. We offer bespoke packages to schools and other institutions. If you have any ideas that you would like to develop with us please do get in touch.
Please note that we are not taking any bookings for new group projects until April 2021 because of the current coronavirus pandemic.
