Therapists perform a vital role as part of the Team Parenting™ approach to foster care.
Therapists help form stronger bonds between our foster parents and the children and youth they look after, while enabling children to look back on their time in care and past experiences with positive memories.
Therapists provide direct support to our foster parents and, at times, directly to the children in youth in our care. As such, the Therapists play a key role in producing successful outcomes.
Therapy can be delivered individually or through group sessions.
Therapy and Team Parenting™
As demonstrated diagrammatically on the Team Parenting™ page, Therapists are part of a wider support network geared to addressing the specific and therapeutic needs of the each child and youth in our care.
The children we foster
Key Assets Fostering specializes in the placement of children and youth with complex needs. These children or youth may have experienced trauma in the form of physical, emotional or sexual abuse. Therapeutic fostering is a term used to describe how we address the therapeutic needs of children and young people to help them deal with and address their trauma.
Assessing therapeutic needs
Therapists will assess each child in care to understand their specific needs and recommend how best to address them.
When a Team Parenting™ assessment results in the decision that this child’s emotional needs should be addressed in isolation, this can either be offered by the Therapist or by a trained specialist who can offer additional support where necessary.Print Page
