Kinship Carers can now sign up for a free training session on the subject of Trauma and Recovery on 25th May 2021 from 10am – 1pm.
This session will be run by Anne Wilson Head of Development of Children’s Health Scotland. Anne delivered two excellent taster sessions on Understanding Trauma and Helping Recovery for Children and Young People in Kinship Care during Kinship Care week and will now deliver a more in depth training session which looks at children’s challenging behaviour as a result of early life trauma.

Kinship Carers may be finding it difficult to understand their children’s behaviours – running away, locking themselves in their rooms and becoming violent especially during lockdown.
Anne will look at what trauma is and where it comes from and while there are no magic bullets, will explore some practical approaches to support children who are affected by childhood trauma and or resurfacing trauma. Spaces are limited so sign up quickly to avoid disappointment.
