PAMS Trained ISWs available now

WillisPalmer has experienced independent social workers available to undertake assessments utilising the Parent Assessment Manual (PAMS) (S McGaw, 2010).

The PAMS has been found to be an essential assessment framework when evaluating parenting capacity of vulnerable parents including those with learning difficulties, mental health problems or other emotionally complex needs.

WillisPalmer has recruited and trained over 30 independent social workers throughout the UK who are qualified to undertake PAMS assessments.

All work is properly quality assured by experienced senior managers before the report is filed with the commissioning organisation.

PAMS Plus

In addition to applying the PAMS we are able to offer additional assessment on issues such as attachment, identification and management of risk. We can also provide clinical psychologists to evaluate cognitive functioning prior to the PAMS assessment. We are a multi-disciplinary organisation.

If you would like to commission us to undertake a PAMS based assessment please telephone us now on: 01206 848431, or email: enquiry@willispalmer.com

We are able to offer discounted prices to organisations looking to commission multiple assessments.

If you would like to meet with our Director, Mark Willis, to discuss your requirements please telephone or email us in the same way.
