Therapeutic Family Care Our Approach

Our Approach

TFC Approach

Our team is comprised of Clinical Case Consultants who have a variety of different educational backgrounds, including Child and Youth Studies, Social Work and Applied Behaviour Analyst. As part of our program we also consult with Clinical Psychologists and Psychotherapist.

Our team all works from a strengths-based, trauma-informed and attachment lens putting the needs of our clients first. Families are involved with TFC on a voluntary basis, which allows us to work collaboratively, use a flexible approach and meet families where they are at. Our Clinical Case Consultants create a nonjudgmental and empathetic environment putting relationships at the forefront.

All the Clinical Case Consultants at TFC are trained in Level 1 & Level 2 Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) and use elements of this approach in our practice. DDP is a therapeutic approach that supports healing of developmental trauma through the parent-child relationship. DDP helps parents understand their child’s early experiences and uses PACE (playfulness, acceptance, curiosity, empathy) to support this healing. Clinical Case Consultants also use a variety of different modalities in working with children, youth & families including: Mindfulness, Solution Focused, Art, Play, Narrative approaches as well as Signs of Safety.

TFC works in collaboration with several community partners.
