Social Work Assessment and Therapeutic Offer
Collective Space Child and Family Services offer independent and expert assessments such as parenting assessments, assessments of alternative carers; both within and outside of the court arena. We can also provide independent assessment or consultation to case work where the organisation has become stuck or unsure of how to proceed.
We can also offer independent clinical or social work intervention to families alongside the work of the case holding social worker. This intervention will be developed with the organisation and family, so that it would form part of the care plan.
All our work is underpinned by systemic approaches and techniques and as such we understand both assessment and intervention to inextricably connected.
Intervention work may focus on improving parent/ child relationship, developing parenting capacity, strengthening family systems and supporting the professional network around the child.
