Our Service Model
Our well-defined and highly structured service model is designed specifically to help troubled young men ultimately live independently and as accepted and included members of their community.
Person-Centred: An inclusive and collaborative approach that focuses on the young person’s unique goals and needs, building on their strengths and working towards an independent future.
Trauma-Informed Care: Promoting the positives of safety, control, skill development, connectedness and wellbeing while understanding the vulnerabilities and emotional triggers experienced by complex trauma survivors.
Positive Behaviour Support: An evidence-informed approach focusing on goal identification, information gathering, hypothesis development, support plan design, implementation and monitoring.
Incrementally Stepped Process: A step-by-step process that builds on a solid foundation of understanding. Which involves:
Understanding: the young person, their history, wishes, needs and goals.
Safety: of the young person, the staff and the community.
Connecting: developing relationships to heal relational trauma within a framework of empathy and respect.
Creating: new neural pathways to ‘rewire’ the brain via repeated positive life experiences.
Needs: being in tune with and adapting programs to meet their changing needs to reinforce positive behavioural patterns and to support pro-social attitudes.
Skills: Develop and consolidate the skills required for maintaining healthy relationships and providing the young person with greater self- esteem and the autonomy needed for a better quality of life.
