How can we help you?
We have introduced our phase modelling as a result of the financial constraints placed upon Local authorities were packages can be designed to include a 3 to 6 month assessment and move from either residential or foster placement to semi independence with support.Many older youths in residential or foster care need the opportunity to practice basic independent living skills in a variety of settings with decreasing degrees of care and supervision as they transition from a dependent living situation to independence or self-sufficiency. We have developed and are now able to offer our phase model, our programmes for transitional and independent living and placements to help provide consistency in the development and delivery of transitional and independent living services. Our phase model assists in the planning of both residential and foster placement through to full preparation into independence through this model we can assist local authorities to ensure the right package of care is offered.

Task Centred Approach
focuses on the type of intervention necessary to achieve and bring about a change to the overall circumstances of the person. It also highlights and helps the person recognise and accept that there is a problem and allows the person to reflect on the causes or origin of their presenting problem(s). This approach also identifies the task(s) that each person will undertake in order to achieve the change.
is based on each family / group network having its own structure / sub system (individuals, sibling groups, parents, etc.). How this theory works is that the type of intervention required may involve analysing the whole problem and those involved therein, such as parents, friends, relatives, etc. However problems arise when people are not able to identify that they are part of a sub system or when there is a conflict / blaming amongst the whole group / network. The type of intervention is important to achieve realisation and change.
explores relationships and allows the person to express their wishes, feelings and frustrations. This type of intervention focuses on the working relationship with the person and how the client and worker relationship affects the person’s behaviour, whilst offering support and assistance to try and overcome the underlying problem(s).
provides a framework of ideas on how people react to different events in their lives. Intervention can focus on how previous experiences of similar events and planning on how best to support the person through another likely or similar crisis. It is based on identifying stages of solving immediate problems, reflecting on past events and helping to create and build supportive networks, which should enable them to get through their initial trauma.
is best described as identifying techniques on how to teach the person new behaviour which would be seen as more acceptable. Behavioural approaches reinforce efforts to achieve change by the use of increased privileges and rewards. It also aims at teaching social skills when used in conjunction with a caring relationship between the staff and the person.
is a multi-discipline approach to working with the person placed in our care. This approach calls upon the expertise of each professional who has an interest in the overall development and well-being of the person. Through the integrated approach from the professionals an agreed positive outcome would / could be achievable. The key principles of privacy, self-fulfilment, independence, choice and rights are an integral part of Sable’s working practices as far as is practicable.
