In her book Boarding School Syndrome: The Psychological Trauma of the “Privileged” Child Joy Schaverien identified a cluster of symptoms and behaviours, which she classified as ‘Boarding School Syndrome’.  In her recent paper ‘Revisiting Boarding School Syndrome’ she has documented the ‘anatomy’, the ABC-D, of this trauma.  This talk will develop some of these themes with reference to the experiences of girls who grew up within an, often unsympathetic, and male identified institution.

With: Prof Joy Schaverien

 

In her book Boarding School Syndrome: The Psychological Trauma of the “Privileged” Child Joy Schaverien identified a cluster of symptoms and behaviours, which she classified as ‘Boarding School Syndrome’.  In her recent paper ‘Revisiting Boarding School Syndrome’ she has documented the ‘anatomy’, the ABC-D, of this trauma.  This talk will develop some of these themes with reference to the experiences of girls who grew up within an, often unsympathetic, and male identified institution.   For younger women in mixed sex schools the problems encountered may be different from those of women who attended single sex schools.  These may include sexual pressure from the peer group and epidemics of eating disorders.  It is hoped to have lively discussion.
