At Timeout, the clinical department is a crucial part of daily operations. The team works diligently to provide a safe, healthy, and supportive space for children in their care. Recently, there have been many exciting updates and news that the team would like to share. I sat down with Nadia, the head of clinical department at Timeout, to learn more.
Katie Benz, a well-regarded member of the clinical department, recently moved on to start a neuropsychologist post. Though the team was sad to see her go, they wish her all the best in her new role.
Demi has been delivering some fantastic DDP coaching sessions. These sessions, a total of 45 thus far, have been individual and have included discussions of children in their care. She has also been helping staff to consider DDP practice in their roles, which has been incredibly helpful to the team.
In addition to Demi's fantastic work, the team has also welcomed Dan Robertshaw, who works directly with therapeutic care to consider DDP in their practice. Dan has been working with carers in Ennerdale and Millfold and is looking to meet more carers. His expertise has been an invaluable asset to the team, and they are thrilled to have him on board.
On the 27th of October, the team will welcome Emily as their new assistant. Her energy and enthusiasm for clinical work make her an excellent addition to the team, and they are excited to have her onboard.
Also their is plans for Lex and Nathan to begin an Art Therapy group at Brooklands School during the week commencing 6th November. This group will help children express themselves in a healthy and supportive environment while having fun.
In summary, there have been several exciting updates and fantastic news occurring within the clinical department at Timeout. With the departure of Katie, Demi has stepped up and has been providing some excellent DDP coaching sessions. Furthermore, Dan has joined the team and is providing invaluable services in therapeutic care. The team is excited to welcome Emily as their new assistant and for the upcoming Art Therapy group sessions. Together, the clinical department at Timeout will continue their hard work to provide the best possible care for children in their care.
