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
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.
