Many congratulations to Andrea and Gabrielle for successfully gaining their Diplomas in Therapeutic Life Story Work. Andrea and Gabrielle are now both fully accredited in this valuable field.

The year-long course was based around Richard Rose's 'Life Story Therapy with Traumatised Children - A Model for Practice' (2012) and was run by the University of East London.

Gabrielle said, "The course was demanding but thoroughly enjoyable. We spent regular weekends at UEL, learning directly from Course Director Richard Rose, the founder of Therapeutic Life Story Work and were assessed by assignments and presentations.

"We're now really enthusiastic about utilising the skills and knowledge that we've gained in supporting children and families."

Therapeutic Life Story Work is designed to help children and young people develop a coherent narrative about their experiences and who they are. The service can be tailored to the specific needs of a child or family.

Head of Operations, Howard Parker said, "Huge congratulations to Andrea and Gabrielle for passing their qualifications after a gruelling year. Their hard work has helped Adoption Focus to expand the excellent therapeutic services that we can offer to our families."
