About the Organisation

Understanding Childhood provides free downloadable information leaflets for families and childcare professionals to help raise emotionally secure children.
One in five children experience emotional or behavioural difficulties sometime in childhood
Early intervention is vital to help families
Every child matters
Understanding Childhood offers leaflets on children's emotional development from birth to adulthood. These popular and well-regarded leaflets were written by experienced child and adolescent psychotherapists for the Child Psychotherapy Trust (CPT), which operated successfully from 1987 to 2004.

The leaflets are widely used by families, health visitors, Sure Starts and other child and family practitioners. They are useful in training and parenting education. Evaluation shows that the leaflets provide helpful insights into the emotional development of children.

Understanding Childhood leaflets can be viewed and downloaded using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Printed copies of the leaflets in batches of 100, and mixed packs, can be purchased.
