Reviews and Endorsements

“A book of its time, which readers will find of enormous value as communities move hopefully towards a ‘post pandemic’ era. A rich diversity of perspectives offers insight into the impact on children and their families … A ‘must read’ for all those who work with children and young people” - Andrea Higgins, former Programme Director, Professional Doctorate Training in Educational Psychology, Cardiff University.

“This accessible and scholarly book invites new thinking about the COVID-19 pandemic's effects on children ... It should have wide appeal for teachers, psychologists, social workers and parents or carers; in fact anyone who wants to support young people to flourish after the pandemic. Highly recommended.” - Dr Barley Birney, Head of Specialist Inclusion Service and Principal Educational Psychologist, Barnet Education and Learning Service.

“Diverse voices from around the world are freed from lockdown in this hugely important book. There is perceptive information about past pandemics and present research on the impact on children and carers. … Crucially, there are the voices of children … There are multiple lessons to be learnt from this book as we adjust to the ‘new normal’.” - Dr Mark Fox, Educational Psychologist.

“Nelson Mandela said children were the rock on which to build our nation. Hope is central to Children in Lockdown … Hope because COVID-19 centralised children's needs, … moving from education to educating, addressing mental health issues and psychodynamics in leadership.” - David Wylde, Past President, International Confederation of Principals.
