FULLY BOOKED: Solihull Approach
The Solihull Approach aims to increase emotional health and well-being through both practitioners and parents. It does this through resources and training across the child and family workforce. The majority of health visitors in the UK are now trained in the Solihull Approach model. Many child and family practitioners from midwives to social workers have been trained in the model. Whole schools have been trained. Some police, firefighters and adult mental health professionals have been trained. Particular features of the Solihull Approach are:
- It is used for workforce development: increases skills and knowledge, consistency and shared language across agencies using the Solihull Approach
- It can be used for early intervention and prevention in the early years, as well as across childhood and into adulthood
- It can be used for teambuilding, for everyone in a team e.g. children’s centre, perinatal unit, school (from receptionists to support staff to teachers).
- It provides parenting programmes from conception through to adolescence, both face to face and online.
- It has a particular emphasis on including fathers.
- It increases the accessibility of parenting programmes through online parenting courses in 108 languages. Several countries and counties offer these across their population.
- It provides a theoretical framework for working with emotional and behaviour difficulties and provides supporting evidence e.g. for Ofsted
- It has a strong and growing evidence base, with over 35 published papers, an RCT and another in the pipeline.
- It can be used at a public health level.
