About the project – Brief Solution Focused Therapy

The programme works with young people, aged between 10 and 17 years-old who come into police custody due to violent behaviour. Building on the emotional health assessment that’s currently offered, the Trust’s Liaison and Diversion team provide additional therapeutic support to the young person in an environment of their choosing (for example at home, school, in a community setting or online).
