Talking with Kids about Tricky Topics

Talking to kids about tricky topics is part of what workers and carers need to do. We need to explore ways of being truthful with kids at a level they can understand and in non-judgmental language. We also need to be mindful of teaching kids who they might talk with about these tricky topics, that they are not alone – there are other kids that go through this, and that whatever happened, it is not their fault. Often this is not a part of worker or carer training and we can find it... [More]

Supporting Complex Trauma and Mental Health in Achieving Permanency

When working in the field of out-of-home care (OOHC) the links between complex trauma and child mental health quickly become apparent. However practitioners often struggle to make sense of complex trauma needs within mental health presentations. As a result fostered children struggle to access appropriate supports and therapeutic outcomes for this population are generally poor or limited in scope. This workshop seeks to help OOHC practitioners understand the varied interconnections... [More]

Partners in Care – Carers and Case Workers Stronger Together; Working with Adolescents

The challenges of working with adolescents in Out of Home care are complex; caseworkers and carers alike may be unprepared for the demands and changing needs of 12 – 18 years olds and this can lead to relationship breakdowns between carers, caseworkers and the children and young people they care for. In these critical years, young people face fear and uncertainty as they transition to adulthood, independence and ultimately leaving care. They are confronted with a changing identity... [More]

Everyday Play Skills and Attachment Rich Experiences for Use in Foster Care

The majority of children in out-of-home care (OOHC) present with significant emotional and behavioural difficulties yet only a small proportion access therapeutic support. Children who have experienced early and persistent harm often struggle to engage in ‘structured’ therapy while foster families can feel excluded or cut-off from professional efforts to support children in their care. The aim of this workshop is to help participants develop their skills in trauma-informed therapy... [More]

Trauma Informed Practice in Out-of-Home Care (formerly Trauma, Attachment and Resilience in Out-of-Home Care Case Management and Service Delivery)

The workshop will begin by exploring the developmental impacts of the trauma children have experienced which has led them to the OOHC system. In particular we will be looking at what this means for their day-to-day behaviours and for our subsequent interventions and case management approach. The workshop will then move on to exploring a holistic model of service delivery that considers the way case workers can approach their day to day practice, as well as their long term planning...

Making the Intolerable Coherent: Working with Children in Care with Autistic Spectrum Disorder

Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) who are placed in out-of-home care (OOHC) present with high and complex needs stemming from their early experiences of harm as well as a persistent developmental delay. Trauma informed systems often struggle to engage with children who present with autistic traits while developmental health services are all too often confounded by aspects of OOHC systems such as placement change. This workshop aims to help participants bring together... [More]
