Mending Young Minds
Listen to the Radio 4 documentary programme on the work done by child psychotherapists at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. Originally broadcast in 2015, it’s still available on BBC Sounds.
The Royal College of Psychiatrists has a collection of web pages about mental-health conditions. The information has been developed by clinicians in conjunction with young people, with a choice of resources aimed at children or their parents and carers.
Tavistock and Portman courses will give you a deeper understanding of the complex difficulties children experience, and build up your ability for critical reflection and resilience. Our training draws on a rich tradition of psychoanalytic and systemic thinking and also benefits from our experience at the cutting edge of innovative practice and research in a multidisciplinary context.
