Empathic Caring Strategies for Looked After Children

Training courses for carers

Parenting a child who doesn’t know how to be parented is the most difficult job in the world.

This course provides expert advice on how to respond to difficult behaviours and emotions for parents of children with developmental trauma.

The course focuses on the common difficulties faced by carers or parents and features quick, applicable ideas that can be used by foster carers.

How do you react to a child’s difficult behaviour? How do you deal with your own negative emotions?

How do you know when to be empathic?

The course looks beyond the traditional punishment/reward strategies and aims to provide an explanation for such questions whilst helping the child in the process.

This course will prove to be an invaluable resource for parents, foster carers, social workers and professionals working with children who are adopted or fostered.
