Children in Lockdown: Learning the Lessons of Pandemic Times acknowledges the constant change and adaptation that was required in real time and the reverberations that continue today. It provides the basis for a start to the discussion about the effects of Covid-19 on families and everyone involved with ‘school life’. International contributions from children, parents, teachers, educational psychologists, and social workers include observations from the UK, Singapore, South Africa, and the USA; stories from children, parents, social workers, and family support workers; and application of a wide range of theory, including psychodynamics, organisational change models, crisis management, and neuropsychology.

The book’s inclusion of surveys and case studies will appeal to professionals and those working with children and young people in education and communities. The quality materials it contains from primary and secondary sources means it will be useful for students training to be educational psychologists, teachers, and social workers. The light it sheds on the ramifications for our young people will be helpful for parents and all who care for children and young people.

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 Higgin, 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
