Treatment Foster Care Oregon UK - Prevention Programme

The Prevention Programme (TFCO-UK-P) is designed for children aged between 3-6 years. The programme aims to help young children develop their social relationships, emotional regulation and to give them skills for school.

 

Working with the child

Children attend a playgroup where they are encouraged to learn and practice skills successfully via child-focused activities. They also receive individual coaching to further develop their skills.

Working with the foster carer as part of the team

The focus for foster carers looking after young people in the P programme is to:

  • Help children to regulate their emotions
  • Encourage positive behaviour
  • Celebrate the child’s achievements

 

Working with families

When children leave TFCO-UK-P and move to a permanent placement, the team works to enable them to continue building on the skills the child has developed.
