Build trust and form a therapeutic relationship

“A key focus, especially initially, is to build trust and form a therapeutic relationship. I find that chatting with young people about their interests and hobbies is a good way to establish this. Most young people probably think nursing staff will just talk about medical things but they soon realise that we are people too. It’s all about them feeling secure and comfortable so they can make the most of their stay with us.”
