‘Beyond the Medical’- The school experiences of young people with a chronic health condition with Dr Sarah Lakeman

25/11/2021 - 16:00 to 16:30


Following on from Lauren Baggley and Erika Payne’s research presentations which also explore the impact of attending school with a chronic health condition, Sarah Lakeman (a newly qualified EP) presents her thesis research, an IPA study which explores the school experiences of five young people with a chronic health condition. Sarah will explore the key themes arising from the research, which extend beyond the purely ‘medical’. She will then describe how the themes were linked to Self Determination Theory (Ryan & Deci, 2017) to the create a reflective framework which demonstrates how the three basic psychological needs; autonomy, relatedness and competence were met or frustrated for the young people in the study. Finally she will consider how this framework could be further developed to help school staff gain a greater awareness of the broader psychosocial impacts of having a chronic health condition at school, promote person-centred planning and support the development of holistic and bespoke support for this cohort of young people.
