Leading the Way with Communities of Practice

therapy community practice

At Therapy Connect, our team of over 70 practitioners are strongly committed to staying up to date with the latest research, tools, and techniques to ensure we deliver the highest quality care. Central to achieving better outcomes for our clients are the Communities of Practice, which are each dedicated to five therapy areas:

  1. Trauma Informed Practice
  2. Neurodiversity Affirming Practice
  3. Telepractice
  4. Complex Disability
  5. Paediatric Feeding Disorders

Trauma Informed Practice: Healing and Empowering

Trauma Informed Practice acknowledges the widespread presence of trauma and its potential impact on individuals accessing services. It encompasses a holistic, empowering, strengths-focused, collaborative, and reflective approach. 

At Therapy Connect, the Trauma Informed Practice aims to create opportunities for learning, skill development, and the application of trauma-informed approaches. By fostering a collective and collaborative environment, practitioners can enhance their understanding, sustain their practices, and create a sense of value and connection for our clients.

Neurodiversity Affirming Practice: Embracing Differences

Neurodiversity Affirming Practice recognises and celebrates the diversity of neurological conditions and the unique strengths and perspectives they bring. 

We are dedicated to creating an inclusive environment where individuals with diverse neurological profiles feel seen, valued, and supported. The Neurodiversity Affirming Practice facilitates our understanding and growth in working with neurodivergent individuals to ensure the most beneficial outcomes. We continue to support individuals in building wellbeing and ensuring their safety, autonomy and self-advocacy, and we aim to nurture the development of a positive identity. 

Our work is always based on strengths and interests and prioritises connection over compliance. We aim to meet the needs and challenges of our clients and their families so that they can thrive. 

Telepractice: Expanding Access and Reach

In an increasingly digital world, Therapy Connect is at the forefront of providing telepractice services. In fact, we literally helped write the guidelines for online therapy! Our approach is backed by research partnerships with Sydney University and the University of Queensland. Telepractice allows individuals to access therapy remotely, breaking down geographical barriers and improving accessibility. 

The community of practice dedicated to telepractice ensures that Therapy Connect’s practitioners stay informed about the latest advancements, best practices, and tools. By harnessing the power of telepractice, our team of over 70 highly experienced therapists can be based across the country and deliver high-quality services to our clients in all parts of Australia, regardless of their postcode.

Complex Disability: Unpacking Complexity, Empowering Lives

Complex Disability refers to the multifaceted challenges faced by individuals with disabilities and we recognise the health inequalities that accompany it. 

Through our community of practice, Therapy Connect practitioners delve into the complexities of disability, seeking to understand and support individuals with compassion and empathy. By actively addressing issues of stigma, discrimination, poverty, and barriers within the health system, we aim to enable individuals with complex disabilities to lead more independent, fulfilling lives of their choosing.

Paediatric Feeding Disorders: Nurturing Health and Growth

Our Communities of Practice serve as a valuable tool in supporting the skill development needs of our team. Paediatric Feeding Disorders (PFD) encompass impaired oral intake that hinders nutrition, development, growth, and overall wellbeing in children. 

Through working collaboratively and sharing our learning, therapists gain the skills and confidence necessary to support children with PFD more effectively.

Therapy Connect’s Communities of Practice play a pivotal role in the development of our growing team and the delivery of our allied health services. By focusing on areas including Trauma Informed Practice, Neurodiversity Affirming Practice, Telepractice, Complex Disability, and Paediatric Feeding Disorders, we aim to offer the best possible care to our clients.
