Welcome to Therapeutic Care
I’m Damien McLellan, a practicing psychotherapist and former course leader of the Carlow College Masters in Leadership in Therapeutic Child and Social Care Course since 2004. I am now withdrawing from full-time participation on the course in order to facilitate its transition into the future.
This website is intended as a resource for social care workers, foster carers, social workers, and all interested in what a therapeutic approach means in theory and practice. It offers a ‘how to do it’ Manual, as well as easy access to a wealth of relevant material and related websites.
The Reinden Wood House Plaque has just been updated and enquiries please to email@example.com
This is a link to Carlow College and to the much revised MA in Leadership in Therapeutic Child & Social Care Course. Peter Kieran and I founded the original MA in Therapeutic Child Care Course at Carlow College in 2004. It was closely modeled on the MATCC course developed by Adrian Ward and his colleagues at the University of Reading who generously shared their ground-breaking template with us.See More
