This involves a therapist meeting with key adults in the team around the child and putting together a bespoke behaviour and support plan for the child which includes reflection of their attachment style, relational, behavioural and emotional needs from a psychotherapeutic perspective. An observation, report and follow-up can also be included in the consultation.
