At Be Centre, we believe it’s essential to closely measure and monitor the outcomes we achieve. We know that Play Therapy is a very effective early intervention for children with psychological, social, emotional or behaviour problems – and we want to make sure we’re delivering it in the very best way possible.
With every child we see, an initial assessment (involving parents and carers) is core to our service – and we also measure progress during and after treatment. Measures we use include Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaires (SDQ), parent surveys and feedback forms. All the info we gather is kept completely confidential, and is solely used to help maintain and improve the quality of our service. With this in mind, non-identifying data is sent to Play Therapy International for statistical and research purposes.
Our research shows that children who participate in Be Centre's Play Therapy programs experience significant improvement in their emotional wellbeing and relationships, with fewer behavioural difficulties. Parents also report that these improvements have a positive impact at home and at school. You can see some of our key facts below, or download our most recent Annual Report for more.
Tom has developed his emotional skills and is now able to regulate his emotions. This has assisted him in dealing with his frustrations and this has also assisted his family because he is generally calmer and less aggressive.-
