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.

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.

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]
