Therapeutic approach for residential care at Birribi
The therapeutic residential care environment offers these essential elements:
- Providing a secure base and stability
- Therapeutic relationships with carers who are well-trained and supported
- Behavioural interventions are connected to the everyday environment, routines and activities within the home
- Learning, motivation and achievements are integrated within the care setting
The rationale for intervening follows a multi-systemic approach as this provides effective intervention for children and young people with complex emotional and developmental needs. The multi-modal interventions are co-ordinated, balanced and adapted over time, with regular reviews of the therapeutic plans by the clinical team.
