Outreach Program

HOPE Cape Town is currently contracting a social worker, who is a qualified play/filial therapist, to provide services in poorly resourced communities. This includes individual counselling and play therapy sessions for children, and family counselling sessions for families of HIV positive children. The focus is usually on dealing with the diagnosis of HIV and living positively despite having HIV, but often needs to include subjects such as coping with abuse, post-traumatic stress, parenting skills and how to get your children into school. We also host intermittent educational parenting workshops where parents are taught how to communicate with and discipline their children.
