Irene Caspari Birthday Celebration & Graduation Ceremony

Wednesday 6th May 2020

Our founder Irene Caspari was born on the 2nd May 1915 in Berlin one hundred and five years ago. This year’s gathering was an opportunity to explore our Founder’s life with archive recordings from the 1977 Commemorative Symposium and an opportunity to celebrate with our successful graduates. 

Around 35 people came together to learn from the past and to hear from those who knew Irene Caspari personally. But, we also heard from recent and new graduates about their experiences of the Advanced Diploma course, with very moving and impressive accounts of what this has meant to them, both personally and professionally.

What came across strongly was the enduring relevance of educational psychotherapy and its vital role in supporting all those involved with children’s education, especially as we move into a new phase of dealing with the current pandemic.

Thanks to all those who took part in the  lively and stimulating discussions and to those who lead and organized the event.

Have a look at the current recruitment information and tell your colleagues; it really is a life-changing experience, just ask those who have done it, they know.
