How a Therapy Pro social worker can help

Social workers offer an outside perspective and help people to see and understand how they interact and relate to the world around them.

Social work is about making connections:

  • Better connecting the person to their family.
  • Connecting the person or their family to the community.
  • Linking a person to formal and informal supports.

Through a focus on strengths and needs to improve relationships and everyday living, Therapy Pro social workers are skilled specialist professionals who can support both children and adults with:

  1. Emotional regulation skills and anger management programs.
  2. Environmental assessments and housing suitability.
  3. Social and relationship building skills.
  4. Functional behaviour assessments and the development of positive behaviour support plans.
  5. Connections into community activities, programs and groups.

Social work is also about making connections like a dot to dot.

Social workers can assist people to understand and identify that if ‘A’ and ‘B’ happens then ‘C’ is the likely reaction. This can assist support workers and family members to understand that when they respond to something that the person does, it causes a certain reaction/outcome.

Our team celebrates difference, assisting clients who are overcoming personal difficulties and structural barriers so that they are included and engaged, strengthening their independence and resilience in practical ways.
