Reablement: SCIE e-learning resource

Part of Reablement

Reablement is about helping people regain the ability to look after themselves following illness or injury. This e-learning resource explains what reablement is, how it differs from home care and intermediate care, and why and how the service should be delivered. The first module is for managers who are involved in the planning and commissioning of services. It looks at how reablement is developing across England, why it is important to offer the service and how to evaluate the success of the service. The second module is designed for care workers. It covers how to carry out a reablement assessment and agree goals and support plans for people, and developing better coping skills for dealing with the emotions that reablement brings out in others and in yourself.

Therapeutic approaches to social work in residential child care settings

Following a regional review of residential child care in 2007, the five health and social care (HSC) Trusts in Northern Ireland introduced 'therapeutic approaches' in a number of children's homes and in the regional secure units. The approaches were used to help staff understand how trauma effects children and young people. This report gives the results of an evaluation of these approaches. The five approaches evaluated were Sanctuary, CARE (Children and Residential Experiences), Social pedagogy, ARC (Attachment, Self-regulation and Competency) and MAP (Model of Attachment Practice). The evaluation looked at the evidence for each of the chosen models and explored their similarities and differences. It also gathered the experiences of key stakeholders – including managers, staff and young people – of using the models and their effects. The report also gives the results of an analysis of the patterns in reporting untoward incidents. Staff reported that the training did improve their practice and young people noticed a improved 'atmosphere'. The report is available as a pdf document and online resource.
