Biography

Thanks for having a look at my Profile. I am so delighted to be part of the DDP Community and particularly proud to be the FIRST, but not the last, Certified Practitioner from the Social Work Profession on the island of Ireland and a PACE Trainer (Supported by DDP Connects UK). I have been a Social Worker for over 23 years and currently manage a multi disciplinary Therapeutic Team for Looked After and Adopted Children in Northern Ireland. I have also developed my Independent Private Practice, Louise Faulkner Therapeutic Services, as a Specialist Therapeutic Social Worker and I am a volunteer Coach for the British Association of Social Workers Professional Support Service.

My practice is also significantly influenced by other interventions including Theraplay (completing Foundation Certification) Systemic family work. In addition I facilitate Kim Golding's Foundation For Attachment Programme and edited and facilitate a Therapeutic Parenting Programme for parents who have adopted, commissioned by a post adoption Therapeutic service.

My DDP journey continues to significantly influence my professional and personal life, but most importantly, it continues to support the families, who courageously strive to repair from their hurts and not allow their past to define their future unhelpfully.
