Articles on Boarding School Syndrome

In my private practice I have frequently encountered those who were traumatised by the experience. In an article published in the British Journal of Psychotherapy in May 2011 I introduced the term Boarding School Syndrome to identify a set of lasting psychological problems that are observable in adults who, as children , were sent away from their home at an early age to boarding schools. This term has drawn a great deal of media interest being quoted in the national and international press.
