All of our interventions adopt the Good Lives Model (GLM), which was developed by Tony Ward et al and has been adapted to include work with young people who display problematic and harmful sexual behaviour.
The Good Lives Model is multi-systemic and adopts a collaborative approach when working with an individual, whereby a variety of agencies contribute towards a shared plan. It integrates well with the AIM2 assessment specific target areas, builds on strengths and promotes resilience and positive outcomes for young people and their community.
At Gleeson Mills Consulting we offer every child/young person a bespoke package of support that is differentiated in accordance with his or her individual needs. We aim to build meaningful relationships that enable us to safely explore and understand what needs are being met by their behaviour so that they are in a better position to make informed and safer choices.
We are able to provide interventions to children and young people presenting with complex social, emotional and developmental difficulties including those who have speech, language and communication needs (SLCN).
We offer bespoke interventions that comprise of any of the following services:
• Individual therapeutic work with the child or young person which will be co-worked, where appropriate, by a male and female practitioner
• Attendance at regular multi-agency meetings to plan and review the intervention
• Consultation to the parent(s) and/or carer(s) and professional group supporting the child or young person
• Attendance at Child in Care Reviews, Child Protection Conferences and/or other relevant meetings as required
Where possible we would hope to provide a complete package of care, incorporating both assessment and intervention as it promotes continuity for the child or young person we are working with. We recognise, however, that there will be occasions when an assessment
has been completed by another agency and as such, we will always make efforts to ensure that our interventions dovetail with any work
