Understanding Childhood provides downloadable information leaflets for families and childcare professionals to help raise emotionally secure

These popular and well-regarded leaflets cover children’s emotional development from birth to adulthood. They 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. See the Orders page.

Other publications originally published by CPT can be downloaded. Printed copies of Far from the battle but still at war – refugee children in school can also be purchased.
