Therapeutic team

As a foster carer in Bradford, you will have access to a dedicated therapeutic social work team.

They provide a range of support to children in care, foster carers and their families. This includes a range of clinics and services such as:

Therapeutic Thinking Time (TTT): Provides a reflective space for thinking about the child, strengths and difficulties, and next steps. This is followed by further discussions to decide what therapeutic intervention support is required.

Fostering/Placement Support Clinic (FPSC): Helps to manage and understand children and young people’s complex behaviours.

Family Therapy Clinics: Provides a space for families to work together to tackle difficulties, build on strengths and make useful changes within their relationships and lives.

Life Story Clinics: Helps children and young people make sense of their lives, including why they are in care.

Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP): Uses the principles of Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy (PACE). to help families, foster carers, children and young people build and repair attachments and relationships.

Theraplay: Offers ideas for how carers can connect with children and help them to find ways to move forward together. This is a practical, active and playful approach which promotes closeness.
