Our work in West Wales with Birribi
SUPPORTING THERAPEAUTIC RESIDENTIAL CARE
Youthinc works in collaboration with Birribi – a provider of therapeutic care for children & young people.
Youthinc provide a therapeutic approach for children in care with Birribi. Our approach is grounded in family systems theory and the understanding that, from infancy to adulthood, a child’s emotional development is shaped through the social environment around them. Youthinc help to create therapeutic care plans around the child, working with the Birribi home managers, the local authority and families.
Youthinc shape the therapeutic plan and work alongside carers. Carers focus on giving lots of encouragement and celebrating children and young people’s achievements. Children and young people are helped to learn and practise new skills in a supportive environment. Thus, the total environment around the young person, becomes a therapeutic environment and everybody works towards a common goal using a solution focused approach and positive psychology.
