Complex Trauma Service
Medium to Long Term
1 year planned placements
Our Complex Trauma service provides placements for traumatised and vulnerable younger children aged between 8-12 years on admission. We offer a comprehensive therapeutic pathway that is tailored to respond to each child’s individual needs. This pathway includes trauma specific interventions and our three phase recovery programme provided by our highly trained staff.
The aim of our complex trauma service is to rebuild lives and promote well being for life. This means enabling children to meet their developmental milestones in areas such as life skills, educational progress, establishing safe social networks and achieving a balanced locus of control. This pathway includes trauma specific interventions and life story work provided by highly trained staff. Ongoing assessments are key and regular reports are sent back to the Local Authority on a monthly basis.
We provide a safe and contained environment where children can benefit from protective adults who provide care including facilitating therapeutic conversations with the children about there past experiences.
