The Transformation Seminars are a series of free online events where we contemplate the future of children and young people’s mental health. Join us as we ask some of the most eminent names in mental health: what would most contribute to a transformation of our approach to mental health?

About this seminar

In this seminar, Professor Peter Fonagy will be looking at what enables us to pass on knowledge from one generation to the next? How does a child know they can trust what they hear. Why is there such a strong relationship between adversity and educational achievement?  Why is it that we remain so open to misinformation? This seminar will consider the fundamental human capacity for vigilance in relation to social information and its frequent failure following childhood adversity and the digital age.

This event will include BSL Interpreters. Interpretation will be available for those joining the seminar on a PC or laptop. This seminar will have automatic subtitles available.
