Are you a past pupil, parent/carer or past staff member of Gloucester house?

Or perhaps a professional interested in different approaches to supporting children and young people in their emotional and academic development and working together effectively to do so?

Are you interested in developing integrated models of Specialist Education and CAMHS with an emphasis on integrated multi-disciplinary approaches, working with complex and highly challenging behaviour and disturbance, developing reflective practice and working in partnership with families and children?

If so, you are invited to a special conference event celebrating 50 years of the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust’s Gloucester House on Friday 16th November 2018.

Gloucester House is an integrated school and mental health service for children and their families.

Throughout its rich history Gloucester House has adapted to changing social and economic contexts, but has always aimed to stay true to this remit of consistently finding ways to understand the relationship between children’s educational and therapeutic needs.

Gloucester House has provided therapeutic educational approaches for children with SEMH for 50 years. Our 50th Anniversary Conference is an opportunity to celebrate and understand its journey, evolution and the current practice of the pioneering and specialist integrated work and consider the application of its approaches in other contexts.

We understand that children who harm are in desperate need of help and understanding, in order to effect change. We invite you to this conference to learn about our unique, specialist and hopeful approach to this very important and challenging area of work.

If this sounds familiar to you and you are a professional who works in a school, alternative provision, CAMHS or other setting with children and families with complex Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs you may be interested to hear about some of our approaches to addressing this. If you are an ex pupil, parent/carer or staff member – we would be very keen for you to attend and to bring your own experiences and reflections.
