Our Foster Care Process

Growth through relationships is our mantra. Our unique approach ensures that you, as a carer, have the confidence in the support provided by LiKa. This will help you embrace the challenges that children can sometimes bring.

What is Systemic Therapy?

Systemic Therapy is a therapeutic approach, which helps people overcome difficulties and challenges which can occur in relationships.

Some therapies seek to identify problems or issues within a specific person. At LiKa we do not feel that this approach is very helpful. A systemic approach provides carers with creative methods to use when talking about ‘problems’ and in doing so helps create closer and more trusting relationships. This approach faces challenges head on, but does so without ‘blame.’ This approach inspires everyone involved in the relationship to feel encouraged to grow and change.

systemic therapy in foster care

“Children benefit significantly from the attention paid by the fostering agency to their emotional and psychological well-being. Staff and foster carers receive training and expert support to sensitively communicate and explore with children their emotional state. Staff and foster carers continually explore how the placement can enhance children’s emotional well-being and resilience.”

(Ofsted Inspection 2017)

Our Approach to Foster Care

At LiKa we have developed an innovative approach to fostering which concentrates on using therapeutic fostering ideas, reflective supervision and training to develop the skills and abilities of foster carers to become more self aware and confident when dealing and talking about difficulties.

Systemic Family Therapy

These ideas are in every corner of LiKa, they flow through all our training to ensure that you feel confident in the skills of therapeutic parenting. We use actors and role plays to practice them, so you can nail it when it comes to the real thing!

child development

Child Development and Attachment

We want to make sure you have specialist skills to be the best support that you can. At LiKa we resist seeing behaviours as ‘attention seeking’ and rather frame it as ‘attachment seeking’ as it helps us respond to challenges in a much calmer and more nurturing manner.

Parenting Approaches
