Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned Report


While there is increasing concern about developing and reinforcing children’s physical and emotional security, researchers have been busy working out the actual mechanics, even at the cellular level, of how this can be achieved. This report will provide a concise update on what is known about optimising children’s wellbeing and security in childhood and far beyond. In examining the ways in which children grow and develop, we can learn from that because their physical and emotional wellbeing and therefore that of our future society will depend on it.
This report represents what we have learned and we hope that it will contribute in a small way to the making of the brave new ‘post-Covid’ world.
