Abstract

This evaluative study makes a range of recommendations related to minimising barriers and maximising benefits of embedding the Solihull Approach more consistently across the health and social care workforce. A key concern is that a superficial understanding of Solihull Approach and formulaic application could lead to fragmentation across occupational groups with behaviour management strategies being implemented in a more professionally driven top down way outside the framework of a developing therapeutic relationship with families. This would impact on the key benefit at the heart of the Solihull Approach i.e. developing family resilience. Ongoing refresher training and mandatory Solihull supervision sessions are necessary to enable practitioners to have a deeper understanding of the Solihull Approach and the central importance of a ‘partnership approach’ and promotion of ‘reflective parenting’.
