We won’t give up until we stop the cycle of mental health problems in families.
We provide advice and support to families that are experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
Staying well: Support families likely to develop mental health problems, to stay well.
Empowering choice: Empower families who experience a mental health problem to make informed choices about how they live and recover.
Improving services and support: Ensure families get the right services and support at the right time to help their recovery.
Enabling social participation: Open the doors to families experiencing mental health problems, so that they feel fully accepted and supported in society.
Removing inequality of opportunity: Gain equality of treatment for families who experience both mental health and other forms of discrimination.
Organisational excellence: Make the most of our assets by building a culture of excellence.
Please help us to raise £816 so that the Child Therapy Service can support children with trauma-attached problems and their families.
Training in Developmental Practice, Psychotherapy and Parenting (DDP) - will enable the Child Therapy Service to support children who have experienced extreme trauma:
- Looked After Children,
- Those subject to child protection,
- Domestic violence families,
Every child should be provided the support they need - no child should be left behind because there are no services available - let us help.
Developmental trauma, attachment theory, intersubjectivity and child development are integrated to produce a therapeutic approach used for relationship development and trauma resolution. DDP recognises the vital role which adoptive parents, foster carers and residential workers play as primary attachment figures in the recovery of traumatised, attachment-resistant children.
Dyadic Developmental Practice aims
To help parents and professionals working together to:
Ensure the child has the best possible relationship with one or two adults who have a parenting role through day-to-day care
Help the child develop as much attachment security as is possible through consistent and attuned parenting, having a safe place to live in a home that is as permanent as possible
Enable whoever is in the most permanent, safest, consistent and attuned primary parenting role with the child, understand the child in the context of their past history and experiences
Help those who are involved in parenting the child to develop the most effective ways of helping and supporting the child, to manage behaviours that are concerning to the child and to others
Be proactive with foster and adoptive families, and the networks around them, in suggesting and promoting the most effective supports and interventions to be in place for the child and the parent(s), such as educational, social, practical as well as therapeutic
Help all professionals working with the child ensure that the child and their behaviour is understood and that the child feels as safe as is possible at home, in school, and in social activities
