Family Care delivers therapeutic care and education for children and young people who have suffered emotional and psychological trauma as a result of sexual exploitation, abuse, violence and neglect.
At Family Care we firmly believe that clearly defined therapeutic approaches enable staff to have a better understanding of how young people’s experiences affect them; considering their emotional needs and fostering resilience in them.
The word ‘therapeutic’ is a term that has been widely used, especially in recent years – yet it is not fully understood or applied in many cases.
Through regular consultations, all the services within Family Care are supported by either our two therapists and/or our independent Clinical Psychologist. Consultation addresses both the emotional and mental health needs of young people but also supports staff development, knowledge, skills and confidence.
The consultation across all of Family Care’s services makes our model powerful and it can impact the greatest change, particularly where our services work together with particular young people, for example when a young person accesses care and education with us.
