Conceptualisation of social and emotional wellbeing for children and policy implications

The aim of this project is to address two issues: What do we mean by social and emotional wellbeing for two groups of children and young people (those aged 0-12 years and 13-25 years)? And What are the policy and practice implications of reporting on social and emotional wellbeing?

Moving from conceptualisation of children's and young people's social emotional wellbeing, to proposals for indicators to measure it, this project takes into account not only the availability of these indicators, but also their usefulness in terms of service needs, and the efficacy of policies to improve children's and young people's wellbeing.
