Residential work with young people

Episode 7,  Apr 12, 2022, 11:24 AM

How can residential therapeutic communities benefit children and young people?

A therapeutic community provides a safe environment for children and young people who  possibly had a very difficult start in life. The care they receive allows them to address their complex emotional, psychological, and behavioural needs.

In this episode, UKCP psychotherapeutic counsellor Gary Yexley unpacks what drew him to working psychotherapeutically in this setting and offers advice to those looking to train and work in residential therapeutic communities.
