JPCCC was started in 1944 as the Child Guidance Clinic with the focus being on assisting families with children who were presenting learning and/or emotional problems. Among the services offered were assessments and therapy for both children and parents. Due to the changing needs of South African communities, the Centre has expanded to include services to children, youth, their families and the systems which impact on them. In line with modern Child and Family Care Philosophy and the new Children's Act of South Africa, the strengthening and preservation of family life is the focus of services to communities. Early detection of, and intervention into, difficulties experienced by children and their families is vital in order to build capacity in families and communities.
The aims and focus of the project:
Through community engagement, he JPCCC aims to mitigate challenges faced by children (barriers to learning, social, emotional and behavioural developmental difficulties). The goal is to move children from a state of survival to one of optimal development. By mitigating these challenges it allows for increased opportunity as each child will be able to reach their individual potential. By supporting the development of children and the JPCCC we are able to alleviate some of their challenges.
