English Innovation Project – New Orleans Intervention Model

Purpose

The English Innovation Programme run by the Department of Education (DfE) is supporting the introduction of the New Orleans Model (NIM) (assessment and treatment) into the London Borough of Croydon, bringing together the local authority team and a NSPCC team consisting of social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists and other professionals. The research being conducted by SCWRU was designed to understand early expectations and perceptions of the fit between NIM and multiple systems including (legal, health and social care) and to encompass the extent to which the intervention was acceptable to key stakeholders. A separate data collection exercise was conducted by Dr Denis Ougrin (Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London).
