LOOKED AFTER CHILDREN AND ADOPTION

  • indexWIPC has developed a range of services for children and young people who remained cared for by foster carers and for vulnerable children who are adopted. Using primarily attachment based approaches we aim to provide families with a safe and reliable therapeutic space. Developing a solid therapeutic relationship with our clients is at the heart of our work, and forms a foundation for applying best practice in the care and reparation of children who have learned to survive by acting in destructive and sometimes inappropriate ways in their relationships. Whilst some of our is directed at the child, we using psychological approaches to parenting informed by Patricia Crittenden (2008); Hughes (2009) and apply many of the ideas developed by Kim Goldikng (2013), as well as useful approaches developed by Omer (2008) using the principles of non-violent resistance.

 

  • WIPC can be commissioned by local authorities, private service providers, adoptive families and other health and social care organisations to provide long-term work with families. This can take the form of assessment, as well as intervention. We enjoy working in partnership with the young people, their families, foster carers, prospective adoptive parents, schools, care homes and providing supervision and consultation to carers.
