The seminar at Dartington Hall discussed the mental health of children in Britain. Peter Wilson, CSP fellow and former director of Young Minds, gave an overview of the current situation and showed two films illustrating therapeutic work with parents and children facing difficulties. Katherine Weare, CSP fellow and Emeritus Professor at Southampton and Exeter Universities, then spoke about her work on promoting social and emotional learning in schools. Finally, Tim Hobbs and Daniel Ellis (SRU) described their needs survey among schoolchildren in Scotland. A summary report of the seminar is available in the papers section.
