Exclusions are increasing in number, meaning that more and more students are unable to work within the current system. Sonia Blandford reports on a programme at Lyng Hall School that is turning circumstances around for students at risk of exclusion, implementing interventions that work.
Dr Fiona Pienaar and Dr Patrick Johnston explore what support and training schools need to address spiraling pupil and staff mental health needs.
Narrative therapy, children telling the stories of their lives and culture, can be an effective early intervention that prevents more serious mental health issues developing in children. Carl Dutton explains.
Dr Rebecca Johnson’s work as a child psychologist convinced her that if parents had space to step back and observe their children, and have some structured guidance to help with reflection, it would allow them to dramatically improve their relationships. She devised an online course to do just that, and its having a big impact.
