A Consultation Approach

Alliance takes a flexible approach to its delivery, however the most common and effective model used within our local schools currently is our ‘Consultation Approach’.

This model of working offers an opportunity to come together, as school leads and leads within Alliance psychological service, to discuss children’s emotional wellbeing within a whole school approach. It offers an opportunity to discuss children’s emotional and wellbeing issues in a professional capacity with colleagues, prior to any referrals being made. It provides a ‘knowledge transfer’ approach whereby as professionals we can share expertise and strategies and agree a course of action for a child, young person and or family. It provides a more coordinated response to supporting children in school with emotional and mental health issues. It offers support to further implement guidance and advice from Dept of Education 2018 Expected Outcomes

  • Increased support offered within school, including updating staff on new resources for children’s mental health
  • Children getting the right support at the right time
  • Opportunity for early delivery of evidence based therapeutic interventions 
  • Improved access and better outcomes for children and young people
