The success of the Compass Approach is based on achieving second order change. All too often families make changes that are not sustained when professional support is withdrawn. Second order change is different; it occurs when family members, staff or organisations develop genuinely new ways of relating to one another based on fundamental shifts in the values, beliefs and assumptions of how they approach challenges and relationships.
Over the last five years the Compass team have been developing a theoretical model, and more recently a service manual and training package to ensure that there is a consistent approach across each of the three Virtual Residential Schools and Outreach Service.
The success of expanding across Norfolk highlights the possibility of scaling the model on a much wider basis. The focus of the Compass Approach is on the relationships formed between staff, pupils, families and partner agencies. At the heart of the model is Attachment Theory and its links to the other psychological approaches that inform our work and clinical interventions.
