Emotional & Behavioural Dev.

Emotional and Behavioural Development

A psychological assessment is undertaken within the first month of placement by the Consultant Clinical Psychologist. This assessment, along with others is fed into the Care Planning Meeting and contributes greatly to the formulation of objectives, targets and actions agreed within the Placement Plan and Care Plan.

The Clinical Psychologist undertakes direct work with children / young people when required and maintains regular advisory support, consultations and on-going assessments with the plan coordinator, keyworker and education tutor. Appropriate management and development interventions are regularly reviewed through this process.

Each young persons plan is monitored and managed by the Plan Coordinator and Keyworker, who take responsibility for achieving the agreed placement objectives and communicating regularly with the child / young person’s case worker.

The Centre maintains high standards of care and control through clearly understood policies, procedures and practice.

Effective pro-social modelling and individualised interventions enable young people to feel safe and confident enough to take responsibility for changing their behaviours making better informed decisions that enables them to take control over their own development and life.
