Our process

What happens during a preparation for independence intervention?

A preparation for independence intervention involves working with the young person directly, and also working with adults who support them. 

During a preparation for independence intervention with HSR Psychology, we will work closely with the young person and the adults around them to identify their level of need appropriately and their capacity to live independently. This information will lead to the creation of a plan to work towards a stepped approach to independence. Each intervention is bespoke according to the young person’s unique needs. Together, the young person, the HSR Psychology specialist and if needed, the wider multidisciplinary team, will plan and work towards different areas of independence. 

HSR Psychology’s wider multidisciplinary team includes:

The HSR Psychology team will focus on planning and working towards a range of goals which are meaningful and achievable for the individual. When preparing for independence, it is important not to attempt to do too many things too soon. Small successes and achievements support a young person to feel confident that they are working towards a greater goal. Small goals will be agreed and reviewed throughout the intervention and adapted as necessary. 

One aspect of a preparation for independence intervention may include psychological strategies to accept that there may be certain areas where full independence may not be possible. 

What happens after a preparation for independence intervention?

After a preparation for independence interventionthe young person will have the confidence and ability to face more activities independently. Following a preparation for independence intervention follow up sessions could be suggested. Outcomes from a preparation for independence interventions can be provided through a single session in which feedback will be given, or a written report. We offer you the option to receive support post-intervention along with help throughout the intervention itself.

Does a preparation for independence intervention come with a report?

A report following an intervention is often recommended. This report details: what took place, the consequences of our input and recommendations for continuing to work towards independence. An extensive and detailed report is available after a preparation for independence intervention highlighting effective strategies for working towards independence. Read more about our reports.
