This therapy has been implemented at JSA in order to allow parents, adoptive parents, foster carers and/or special guardianship carers to utilise skills to support the children in their care that are similar to the ones our therapists practice.
The sessions of the programme we deliver are an hour in length, following which we encourage our clients to hold a special 30 minute playtime session with their child each week at home. The programme as a whole takes place over a structured 10-week course. It’s a fantastic programme of therapy which allows our foster parents/ carers to build positive attachments with their children, and indeed allows for the children in turn to develop positive attachments with others.
PCRT is something JSA are really hoping to extend out to local authorities and private care providers to enhance the quality of service that we provide.
