Frequently asked questions
What is a Therapeutic Wellbeing Practitioner?
Therapeutic Wellbeing Practitioners enhance the wellbeing and nurture the potential in children and young people through promoting creativity and emotional literacy. Wellbeing practice can enhance self-awareness, self-esteem and self-confidence as well as communication skills, emotional resilience and recovery in children and young people, families and organisations.
The therapeutic and multi-disciplinary training is completed over three years in order to qualify with the knowledge and expertise required for safe and effective practice. Therapeutic Wellbeing training has been informed by youth work, social work, mental health, therapy and education. It has been influenced by attachment principles, neuro-science, child development theory and cutting edge perspectives on child and adolsecent mental health. A Therapeutic Wellbeing Practitioner can therefore offer a unique role and service due to the holistic nature of the training. Targetted support can be provided to improve the wellbeing of a child or young person without being limited to a traditional therapeutic role or way of working. Should this however be needed for your child, where necessary they can also
signpost to other agencies or services that maybe more appropriate.
Therapeutic Wellbeing Practitioners adhere to professional standards with reference to codes of conduct, performance and ethics in working with children, and families.
Therapeutic Wellbeing Practitioners are required to have ongoing supervision and undertake a minimum of 30+ hours a year of CPD.
