Practitioner becoming certified in DDP
I am a clinical psychologist working for the London Borough of Hackney’s Children’s Social Care service. Hackney Children’s Social Care has integrated its social work service with its delivery of specialist clinical practice. The focus of the latter is on delivering therapeutic services to families and supporting high quality, evidence-based social work practice with children who are at risk, living away from home or experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties.
Part of my role within Hackney CSC is to provide specialist assessments and therapeutic interventions for families where there are issues related to abuse, neglect and parenting difficulties. I also provide therapeutic support to Looked After Children and children living with Special Guardians and adopted children.
