The Solihull Approach has been delivering evidence-based training to professionals working with children and families since its conception in 1996. Emerging from health visitor support, the Solihull Approach model is now applied across disciplines and professions as a way of supporting practitioners to understand children’s development, the power of relationships, and how to effectively support family connections to help children to thrive.
The Solihull Approach theoretical model is grounded in practice and facilitates an understanding of emotional health and wellbeing as well as mental health. It can be applied to working with families, with individuals, with groups, with a community, or with a large population from a public health perspective. The three concepts of containment, reciprocity, and behaviour management facilitate the understanding of relationships and how to apply this in different contexts.
