Skills-set and Training

The Good Relationships Method offers professionals a framework for understanding children with social emotional and mental health needs. 

The method is a synthesis of best working practices which share a core ethic of 'minimum coercion'.  The method also works really well with children who don't have SEMH needs, so using the method does not divide the children.

The method brings together a set of communications skills, narrative skills, and restorative approaches.  The seven-factor  model for relationship growth which is at the heart of the method is original to Narrative.
