Children, young people & families

Children, young people and familiesSometimes, through no fault of their own, children and young people can find their emotions get in the way of developing and learning. Caspari Foundation is a charity that helps children, young people and families to learn to cope with and overcome these barriers.

Around 30 current and former students of the Caspari MA and Advanced Diploma courses gathered for a reunion and to hear more about what is currently going on at Casapri. Jim Rose talked about some of the more recent changes that have taken place including; the transition from a university accredited MA award to the UKCP accredited Advanced Diploma course and a shift of the locus of delivery of educational psychotherapy from a 'clinic' based service to direct work in schools. This is exemplified in the exciting developments with the EPIC project. 
The current organisational review, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, has reaffirmed Caspari's role as a training organisation; as a charity with a unique offering to schools and as a charity promoting the benefits of educational psychotherapy for children and young people across professional boundaries.
Jim also outlined the challenges facing Caspari, primarily the need to re-engage with our membership and to encourage more people to commit to supporting the charity by increased involvement at Trustee and Committee levels.
