Therapeutic Parenting: Developing Safe & Nurturing Carer-Child Relationships

Traumatised children, particularly those who present with attachment difficulties, often find it challenging to trust their new carer or foster/adoptive parents as they generally operate from a fear-based worldview.

As such, the caregiver’s ability to provide skilled, individually tailored intervention is paramount to the recovery... [More]

Often this is not a part of worker or carer training and we can find it... [More]

KiDs SAY: Participation Power & Purpose – Providing Opportunities for KiDs Strengths, Hopes and Concerns to Drive Practice

Child Protection Inquiries over the last 40 years have stressed the importance of listening to kids (Arney 2016).

Evidence suggests kids feel like... [More]
