Therapeutic Thinking Support Team (TTST)

The TTST is a team made up of Educational Psychologists, Advisers and Practitioners supporting maintained schools to consider the needs and provision for children and young people who experience Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) difficulties.

Therapeutic Thinking is an approach to support children and young people’s SEMH needs in schools. Being therapeutic means that school policy and the day to day practice in schools are designed to provide experiences that create sustained prosocial (positive, helpful) feelings within all children, adults and in particular the non-typical and or unlucky young people.
