Solihull

What is the Solihull Approach?

Solihull is a whole system approach to improving emotional health and wellbeing for children and young people.
It has been established for 20 years and is evidence based.
There are courses available for parents and carers. It normalises parenting support and is non-stigmatising.

There is Solihull training available for all professionals in Norfolk who come into contact with children and families.
The approach covers from the antenatal period through to early adulthood – and is in fact relevant to all relationships.

Across Norfolk there is a commitment to provide Solihull training for the whole children and young people’s workforce.
This will have the benefit of a shared language and framework of how we help children learn to self regulate and feel safe and secure as they grow.

The approach is based on three theoretical concepts
• Containment
• Reciprocity
• Behaviour Support

Containment and reciprocity underpin relationships and brain development as well as the quality of the attachment relationships children experience

  • The Solihull Approach is well reviewed by school staff - many reporting long term positive impacts.
    ‘Quantitative statistical analysis found that six months after the Solihull Approach Whole School training….showed a statistically significant increase in satisfaction with their helping role, self-esteem, and teacher efficacy scores as well as a decrease in feeling burnt out/stressed’.

    Hassett, A. and Appleton, R. (2016) Understanding your pupil’s behaviour: a pilot study from two primary schools in Kent. Research Report.

    A commitment to training your school’s staff is beneficial to both the staff and the pupils.
