Who we are

Placement Support is an organisation of psychotherapists working collaboratively with
educationalists and social workers. We have specialist expertise in working with looked-after children and their carers.

We are an OFSTED inspected Adoption Support Agency able to advise on
adoption matters and to support adoption placements. 
We also work in
educational settings, and in any situation where children and their
families need extra help.

We are a training organisation for APPCIOS, the Association for Psychodynamic Practice and Counselling in Organisational Settings. 

Our
aims are:

To support the  placement of looked-after and adopted children.

To provide specialist  support and therapeutic services to the networks of carers and
professionals working with looked-after and adopted children.  

To promote the  practice and understanding of specialist support and consultancy
amongst professionals working with looked-after and adopted
children.

To promote a wider understanding of the emotional needs of looked-after and adopted children

 

Why
we do it:
.

 

It can be hard to access the right kind of help when you are caring for looked-after and adopted children; their problems are not always easy to understand or to categorise.  But looking after traumatised and abused children is one of the most difficult jobs there is.

No-one should underestimate the difficulties of this work,
and the impact that these vulnerable children can have on everyone
around them:  their peer group, their teachers, their adoptive and
foster parents and the professional networks that try to help them.

These are children who come from troubled and disrupted families that could
not hold together in a loving and cohesive way.  Because of their
early experiences, they find it hard to trust the adult world.   They
need a network of adults around them, thinking about them together
and making sense of their scattered memories,  if they are to
overcome the emotional damage caused by early neglect, disruption,
chaos or abuse. 

We work with families, carers, staff groups, social
workers and teachers as well as offering direct work to the children.
We stress the importance of building a joined-up and cohesive
understanding amongst all the adults who contribute to the care of
the children.
