Lighthouse Institute is an Australian attachment and trauma-informed ‘Knowledge Centre’ that draws on 21 years of practice at Lighthouse Foundation as well as applied research in the fields of child and adolescent psychology/psychiatry, community psychology, trauma neurobiology studies and clinical practice from around the world. The Institute specialises in Research, Training and Consultancy. It is also responsible for licensing the Therapeutic Family Model of Care™ to appropriate community organisations throughout Australia thereby significantly increasing the availability of the Model.
The Institute has been developed to expand the work of Lighthouse Foundation to increase the availability of the innovative Therapeutic Family Model of Care™ to vulnerable children and young people throughout Australia and internationally.
A recently commissioned independent report by Social Ventures Australia estimated that the work of Lighthouse Foundation and Lighthouse Institute returns to the wider community approximately $12 in social value for every $1 invested making the Lighthouse Therapeutic Family Model of Care™ one of the most cost effective therapeutic programs in Australia.
