The Waldon Approach to Child Development
Chris Holland
Chris Holland qualified in Medicine, Child and Family Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis, with special interests in early child development, and in autism, from both neurological and psychological perspectives.
He studied the Waldon Approach with Geoffrey and other staff for several years at High Wick Hospital, where he was Psychiatrist-in-Charge, as well as participating in workshops in Manchester and on Geoffrey’s French workshop tour. He is convinced that Geoffrey was decades ahead of his time, and that the Waldon Approach has a great deal to offer in all areas of education.
