Using Empathy to Support Compassion Fatigue, Co-Regulation & Attachment - Advanced (Zoom)

Using Empathy to Support Compassion Fatigue, Co-Regulation & Attachment - Advanced (Zoom)

From: £345.00 3 hours

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.

Understanding our attachment patterns is key to offering a supportive relationship to our young people. This is achieved through a clear understanding of our own history and unmet childhood needs, as it is estimated that 40% of adults have a reactionary attachment pattern. In this course, we will explore the critical tenets of attachment in interpersonal relationships and support understanding adult attachment patterns and how this can lead to blocked care.

Blocked care can cause placement breakdown or 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.

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!
