Children Looked After and Adopted

Working with looked after and adopted children, particularly when their needs are complex, severe or enduring is stressful and emotionally difficult.  Reports and serious case reviews have highlighted how this can impact on the ability of individuals and services to work effectively.

NSCAP’s experience is that what helps in these circumstances is a focus on reflective practice, supervision, in-depth understanding of child development and continuous professional development.  Together, these approaches can help break the escalating cycle of difficulties that occur for many looked-after children and services.
