David's Journey: From a locked ward to a life of his own

Written Material

This is the third article in the "Your Move' series. In it we meet David, a young man with destructive and challenging behaviours. Key people, including family members, came together to focus on who David really was and what was important to him. They developed a 'life plan' for David that identified essential requirements for a lifestyle that would suit David's needs. Workers then concentrated on helping David feel safe and relaxed, and on helping him take more control over his life. David has moved into his own flat and this, combined with a change of lifestyle, has seen David's reputation change for the better. Keywords: Accommodation, Individualisation
