Consistent with our values regarding partnering with the important people in a child’s world, and using interventions informed by the best available evidence, Coral Tree takes an approach to assessment and intervention that is informed by a combination of:
- Parent management training,
- Cognitive behaviour therapy,
- Family therapy (particularly structural and Milan-systemic approaches),
- Attachment theory,
- Narrative therapy.
While these models can have different points of emphasis, Coral Tree views them as overlapping and interconnected ways of making sense of people and therapeutic work, rather than separate, mutually exclusive explanations. Coral Tree integrates these models rather than eclectically combining them.
