New evidence summary: Psychotherapy and the Frankish model

Our latest evidence summary reviews the evidence behind psychotherapy and the Frankish model for children and young people with learning disabilities. 

Psychotherapy provides a safe, confidential space for people to communicate difficult or painful feelings to a trained professional. Psychotherapy aims to help people with a range of emotional and behavioural problems. The therapy often involves talking, but can also use drama, art, play, or music.

The Frankish model of psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy specific to people with any kind of disability. It is sometimes referred to as ‘disability psychotherapy’.
