Some of the young people and children being cared for in our care homes have faced painful and traumatic experiences in their lives. Repetitive experiences of loss and the dissolution of relationships often results in the emergence of mistrust, making it difficult for children to have belief in the ability of adults regarding their commitment towards adequately being available to care for and tend to their needs. At solace care, we nurture a healthy and safe environment where young people can grow and develop healthy relationships.
After the children and young people have become accustomed to their placement and have developed trusting relationships with the staff team, psychological assessments can then be conducted followed by the appropriate therapy techniques. The psychological assessment assists us in creating a picture regarding the child's history, personal experiences, emotional, psychological, and cognitive difficulties as well as their resources and strengths. Moreover, the assessment also helps our team to establish an approach that is in line with the right therapeutic practices so that we can effectively address the challenges and difficulties the child may be experiencing.
