Understanding Childhood Ltd is an independent not-for-profit enterprise set up in 2004 to disseminate the leaflets on child emotional development and behaviour first produced by senior child and adolescent psychotherapists for the Child Psychotherapy Trust (CPT).

The goodwill and copyright was previously owned by the Child Psychotherapy Trust, established in 1987 and closed down by agreement of the trustees in 2004. We have arranged for this well-respected leaflet series, known as Understanding Childhood and other CPT publications to be downloaded free via this web site. The leaflets are also for sale.

The net profit arising from leaflet sales will be donated to charities benefiting children and families.
