How our therapeutic learning model works
Our children’s therapeutic school and community would not be the unique and nurturing place it is without the use of the psychoanalytic and group process/ relations models which inform and are ingrained in our therapeutic practice, culture, and environment. This therapeutic practice is used every day by the staff members in the way we think, work, and build relationships with one another and so is integrated into our interactions with the children in a holistic way.
The therapeutic input is applied to help our children recover from the trauma they have experienced and address the barriers that stop them from engaging in education, normal social and emotional experiences, and daily life. We aim to build a child’s self-esteem by providing learning, positive primary care, nurture and play opportunities. These can also shift and/or improve any developmental delay difficulties which are associated with early deprivation.
