Care Perspectives Ltd employs a team of highly specialised health professionals for its residents. They will provide weekly input to the staff and direct work with young people as required.

The team around the child use attachment theory, PACE (therapeutic parenting model) and complex trauma to formulate and plan interventions. We currently use the BERRI assessment tool to provide outcome data and to inform areas of need and intervention. The BERRI is a clinical evaluation tool for identifying, tracking and improving the outcomes of children with complex needs. Additionally, we use SDQ’s to assess children’s mental health and evaluate outcomes.

In the context of safe therapeutic relationships, we support the young people to discover their own capacities and strengths, with the use of carers diverse skills set. We always aim to facilitate a safe, nurturing therapeutic environment which helps the individual to repair, connect, reflect, and thrive.

Our operational methodologies are firmly rooted in empirically derived conceptual frameworks, which serve as the bedrock for our therapeutic models. These frameworks not only guide our daily endeavours but also facilitate the translation of our philosophical underpinnings into actionable practices. Consequently, we cultivate a precise therapeutic milieu and a shared set of concepts that serve as the cornerstone for dialogues encompassing experiences, interactions, relationships, and operational methodologies. These frameworks concurrently serve as a platform for reflective contemplation.

To ensure a seamless continuum, these very models are seamlessly integrated into professional strategising, execution, ongoing assessment, and supervisory aspects of our practice. The congruity between our lexicon and the foundational principles of Care Perspectives is paramount. This congruity finds its expression in various facets, including but not limited to:

  • Holistic evaluations, identification of needs, and the formulation of comprehensive care plans.
  • Case conferences, post-event analyses, and comprehensive case evaluations.
  • Reflective practice supervisions, performance evaluations, and targeted training interventions.
  • Effective liaison and communication with external agencies.

The therapeutic milieu and concepts that are integral to our therapeutic frameworks offer a cohesive vocabulary for shared comprehension and extensive reflection, encompassing:

  • The interior landscapes of both our service recipients and our own personnel.
  • The dynamics governing one-on-one engagements.
  • The analysis of internal working models, exhibited by both young people and carers.
  • A holistic grasp of complex relational dynamics.

These therapeutic frameworks wield a defining influence over:

  • The development of our therapeutic milieu.
  • The progressive development of our young people.
  • The cultivation of our adept practitioners.
  • The nurturing of our therapeutic alliances.

In summation, our therapeutic frameworks orchestrate a harmonious alignment between theoretical principles and pragmatic implementations, permeating all layers of our engagement with young people.

The Therapeutic Alliance

Central to the ethos of Care Perspectives is the therapeutic alliance, an omnipresent and unifying factor that underpins every facet of our operational framework. The crux of fostering healing and transformative progress, particularly stemming from adversities rooted in early life, lies in the strategic cultivation of a systemic therapeutic alliance. The efficacy of this endeavour is intricately linked to the proficiency and competence of our experienced therapists.

In essence, the therapeutic alliance serves as the fulcrum upon which our entire enterprise pivots. Its strategic orchestration is a quintessential instrument through which we enable the realisation of positive change and emotional recuperation, engendering a profound impact on the lives of our young people.
