Event Details


Focus

Foster carers and adopters nurture children whose own complex histories can lead to challenging behaviour and high levels of ongoing trauma within the family. Parents and carers can quickly become exhausted and drained through meeting these high levels of need. In extreme cases parents and carers are at risk of developing secondary post traumatic stress which can impact severely on their physical health and psychological wellbeing. 

 This workshop will give carers and workers who support them the opportunity to reflect on their own wellbeing, recognise signs of increasing stress and develop strategies to build their own resilience. Some of the techniques practised will also enable carers to teach their children how to manage internal and external stress. 

 Target Group 

 Foster carers, adopters and family placement workers supporting these families.

 Trainer    

Pat Joseph has over 25 years’ experience of working with children and families and the professionals that support them. She is a qualified teacher, social worker and executive coach and has spent the last 15 years supporting practitioners and managers who work with vulnerable families.  

Learning Outcomes  

  By the end of the workshop participants will be able to: 

  • Understand the importance of attending to carers’ own wellbeing and how this can help to support their children;  
  • Recognise the signs and indicators which suggest increased stress;  
  • Identify strategies to develop their resilience;  
  • Identify techniques which they can use to teach children to manage stress.
