Our therapeutic approach to education draws upon a range of theories and research within psychology and associated therapeutic disciplines, including occupational, speech and language and psychodynamic psychotherapies.
What does it mean to take a therapeutic approach?
Taking a therapeutic approach means that the processes and techniques used to reach a goal are characterised by compassion and seek to promote healing. With the necessary knowledge and skills, anyone can adopt a therapeutic approach - whether you are teaching, coaching, managing employees, or within your personal relationships. This does not mean we are acting as therapists, but that we proactively approach and respond to events and interactions in a more informed way.
At TINT Education, our services draw upon a range of theories and research within psychology and associated therapeutic disciplines, including occupational, speech and language and creative arts psychotherapies. The way in which we view human relationships and the issues that occur for people throughout their lives is heavily grounded in the pioneering work of psychologists Carl Rogers, John Bowlby, Bruce Perry, Dan Siegel, Gabor Maté and Karen Treisman, amongst others.
What are some examples of therapeutic approaches?
For clients working with or parenting children and young people, TINT Education promotes understanding and skill development in the use of approaches such as Emotion Coaching, the Neuro-Sequential Model, the PACE model, restorative practices, and sensory integration, to name a few.
For adult organisations, the focus is upon recognising the prevalence and signs of mental health difficulties or challenges in the workplace, or challenges that may be arising from neurodevelopmental differences. Therapeutic approaches in these instances might involve empathic communication techniques and/or advocating for reasonable adjustments to be made to the physical or social working environment.
Whilst the specifics of the approach for each individual or organisation will vary, our services are always centred upon fostering empathic relationships and emotional literacy, including self-regulation. We are invested in creating caring and safe communities in which all children and adults feel free to be themselves, to take risks, to celebrate their strengths, and to acknowledge areas for growth.
