Dialogue | Schools, mental health and the pandemic

 Registration is closed for this event
The third event in the Dialogues on the time of Covid-19 Spring series, will be looking at the impact the pandemic has had on our school and mental health.


These dialogues will be delivered remotely via Zoom

Tuesday 23rd of March
8:15pm - 9:45pm

Schools play a crucial role for the social, emotional and intellectual development of children and adolescents. Attending to school children’s mental health creates enormous challenges. Managing the different demands, from government and local authorities, parents and children, is difficult at the best of times. The pandemic has not only increased these challenges, but has created new ones, through the risk of social contact, new forms of teaching and learning, and the heightened anxieties and emotional problems children and teachers face.

Emil Jackson, child & adult psychotherapist and executive coach, who has worked extensively with schools and co-edited the book “Sustaining Depth and Meaning in School Leadership: Keeping your Head”, will be in dialogue with psychoanalyst Maxim de Sauma, Head of the Child Training at the Institute of Psychoanalysis and Clinical Director of the Brent Centre for Young People, which has developed work with schools. The event will be chaired by the psychoanalyst Hannah Solemani, who has worked with young people at the Brent Centre for over 20 years.

These dialogues will be held live on Zoom and will also be made available the following day for  24 hours to all registered participants. This is to allow for international attendees to enjoy the event at a more appropriate time in their time zone. After this, the recording will no longer be available.
