The methodology takes the practitioner through a counselling interview technique- with the child as the center point- to help the child see the problems from a multi-perspective view with a unique supportive tool (Puppets).
It comes in two parts:
- The gate-keeping and curative aspects of the Methodology
- Guidelines for further counselling and care in general and for Reintegration
1. The gate-keeping and curative aspects of the Methodology
The Counselling Interview technique:
With a systemic way of counselling, areas of conflict, dynamics of the (dys) functional systems and other problems are revealed and shown in the shortest time.
The child can see and realize that his problems are not isolated but related to the systems around him.
This nonverbal tool that represents human beings, is a playful, child friendly indirect way of engaging the child in a conversation to get a better understanding and insight op the child personal’s life story. The client can identify himself and all members of the family and the involved systems around him.
Through the “puppet” setup the client is able to show the complexity of his present and past situation and how he would like his future to be.
2. Guidelines for further counselling and care in general and for Reintegration
From the gathered information, the practitioner will develop a treatment plan and with guidelines engaging the child in the decision making what the key steps should be taken to solve the presenting problems.
Together with the client and the contributions of the involved and affected systems, the practitioner will come up with a treatment plan and find solutions for the complex issues and /or key steps for the reintegration plan that reunifies the client back into the community.
