Providing care for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, trauma, and loss is highly demanding. The complex needs of these children require the key adults around them to maintain robust mental health and well-being.

To establish a supportive relationship with our young people, it is crucial to understand our attachment patterns. This involves understanding our history and unmet childhood needs, as it is estimated that 40% of adults have a reactionary attachment pattern. This course delves into the critical aspects of attachment in interpersonal relationships and helps participants comprehend adult attachment patterns, which can prevent blocked care.

Blocked care can result in placement breakdown or Compassion Fatigue, characterised by emotional and physical burnout and secondary traumatic stress. Foster caregivers are at greatest risk, as they may have limited opportunities to take a break, or recharge since their homes double as their workplace. Besides affecting mental health and well-being, this situation also affects the quality and consistency of care offered. We also explore how Compassion Fatigue can present for workers in educational and residential settings.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To enhance our knowledge and understanding of attachment theory and its effect on personal and professional relationships.
  2. Understand the attachment pattern we may have developed and learn the possible implications for our caring relationship.
  3. Develop an understanding of how attachment patterns can be altered.
  4. Identify what co-regulation means, why it's essential, and how to apply it.
  5. Discuss the challenges and successful skills in applying therapeutic foster care.
  6. Explore how the changes to family dynamics brought about by fostering causes stress.
  7. Analyse factors that lead to compassion fatigue. 
  8. Identify critical signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue.
  9. Identify coping strategies that you can use to increase resiliency.
  10. Identify ways of maintaining positive elements of "pre-fostering life" and self-care.
  11. Develop ways to find support for yourself and give support to your colleagues.

Need more time?

We recognise that sometimes groups need more time for discussions and group work. This can mean that a two-hour session is just not long enough to explore the curriculum and engage in question and answer sessions. So we are you offering the opportunity to extend the session by an hour to allow your trainees the chance to explore the curriculum fully!
