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]

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]

Adoption, Guardianship and Permanent Care Orders: Casework Implications

This course looks principally at the open adoption and guardianship orders that are embedded in the new permanency placement principles, exploring the development of openness as the guiding principle in contemporary adoption practice. It looks at how the principle of openness is expressed in life story work, in contact arrangements, and in work with birth family and carers. It also explores the idea that open adoption principles should be part of casework for every child in OOHC,... [More]
