Approach

Relational Child and Youth Care Practice

Relational Child and Youth Care Practice:

Each child/youth is regarded as a holistic, autonomous individual, not merely a set of symptoms or problems. The child’s overall psychological wellbeing and self-confidence are improved through the creation of caring, trusting relationships. This also optimizes the creation of neural pathways in response to new skills and thought patterns. Strategies are individualized to match the specific needs of each child and youth.
