Course Outline:
The Solihull Approach is a highly practical and effective way of working with families within a robust theoretical structure (containment, reciprocity and behaviour management) a synthesis of a thoughtful psychodynamic approach with practical child development and behavioural approaches. It provides a particularly helpful theoretical framework for those working with families, babies, children or Young People.

The Solihull Approach uses evidence from neuroscience and explores the impact of abuse and neglect on brain development; it is underpinned by in attachment theory. It is very practical way of working with tools such as emotional containment, building reciprocal relationships and managing behaviour using an empowering, problem- solving approach.
