Since it was founded in 1948, the school has used psychodynamic theory to underpin its policy and practice. The school has remained flexible to the different demands of Government direction and policy, adapting the organisation’s policies and its practice whilst maintaining and reflecting the value it places on its psychodynamic culture.
At the Mulberry Bush Organisation we believe that to effectively understand, educate and treat children who display challenging and disturbing behaviour, we need to be reflective practitioners, highly attuned to the communication and needs of children. Through our understanding of their verbal and non verbal communication we can adapt our work and the environment to better meet their needs. Through meeting the needs of children we provide an environment in which they feel safe, understood and able to engage in learning, socially, emotionally and academically.
The organisation plays an important role in structuring the environment to enable this to happen.
