About the Author
Dan Jones is a psychological therapist with asperger's.
He learnt about the Human Givens Approach in 2001, and was taught the approach in 2003 as a central part of the psychotherapy diploma course he was studying at the time.
Since 2007 he has worked with parents and families offering one to one support and group support. The families he has been working with have all had a child or young person ‘at risk of criminal offending’ or have had a child or young person in the family that had already committed a criminal offence. As part of his role he has held training with various teams; like the Family Resource Team, Family Link Worker Team and the Youth Offending Service on using a Solution Focused Approach with parents and families. He has also given talks to teachers within schools and to trainee Senior Social Workers on using a Solution Focused Approach with parents and families and how success is measured so that the work he does is evidence-based.
He has worked within the Youth Offending Service offering support to parents of young offenders, and to parents of those ‘at risk’ of becoming young offenders, so young people committing anti-social behaviour, or having poor school attendance, or anger problems (where he gathered data on the effectiveness of using the Human Givens Approach with parents of young offenders and of those at risk of becoming young offenders). He has also worked within a Family Intervention Project and with the Governments ‘Troubled Families’ programme using this approach to offer support to families to help reduce youth offending and anti-social behaviour, help get parents back to work and children back into school, and to improve emotional wellbeing and community involvement of the families he has worked with.
Prior to working with parents and families Dan worked in residential children’s homes from 2000 and helped to set up a ‘Therapeutic Communities’ children’s home in 2004. Prior to this he worked with adults with mental health issues, like schizophrenia, manic depression, and obsessive compulsive disorder from 1997.
