Description

Providing foster care for children who have often experienced abuse, neglect, trauma and loss, is highly demanding. The complex demands of these children require foster carers to have robust mental health and well-being.
Foster carers are at risk of experiencing Compassion Fatigue. This is generally defined as a combination of emotional and physical burnout and secondary traumatic stress.

Because the foster carer’s home is also their place of work, there is little opportunity to take a break, rest and re-charge. As well as affecting their mental health and well-being, this situation also impacts the quality and consistency of care provided to the vulnerable children they look after.

Are you and your agency aware of the signs of compassion fatigue?

Advanced Training

This option is aimed at an audience with prior knowledge of the subject and isn’t suitable for.  Those that are new to the subject would be better with our standard course.

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!
