Speaker information

Professor Peter Fonagy, UCL & Anna Freud National Centre
Professor Miranda Wolpert, UCL & Anna Freud National Centre

The “So What?” seminar series asks "So what does this mean for policy and practice?" of recent research/evidence in child mental health.

We are pleased to announce that the next seminar features a debate between Peter Fonagy and Miranda Wolpert on the use of recovery as an indicator of outcome in child mental health. For the purposes of this debate, *recovery is understood as change in the severity of symptoms from above a given or clinical threshold before treatment, to below that threshold following treatment. This is considered to be the most appropriate definition for this discussion and aligns the debate with the latest findings of an upcoming report on child and parent- reported outcomes from children and young people’s mental health services.

Following the presentation of arguments for and against, this debate will be opened up to to the audience for contributions to this very relevant and important discussion.
