This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book offers teachers and school staff, clinicians, and primary education and child mental health providers and commissioners an understanding of the scope and limitations of locating highly specialist clinicians in primary educational settings. It concentrates on work with those children and their families about whom parents and carers, schools, GPs, and social workers are most worried. The book shows how child psychoanalytic psychotherapists work with fundamental anxieties and emotional conflicts that children and their families and schools may not be aware of, as well as with more identifiable problems, family and social/economic circumstances, developmental difficulties, and life events. It describes a developmental child psychotherapy approach with excluded children in a PPRU.
