As a foster carer it is likely that you will be caring for a child who has experienced complex trauma. It is really important that you have a thorough understanding of what trauma is and how trauma affects children before we can begin to think about strategies to support you and your child. We will look at the strategies in Part 2 of this course.
In this course you will have the opportunity to develop:
- A deeper understanding of how trauma affects your children’s behaviour.
- Increased confidence to support your children who have experienced trauma.
- Strategies for strengthening the relationship between you and your child.
- An awareness and sensitivity to the dynamics of trauma.
