Event Description
Trauma Systems Therapy for Foster Care (TST-FC) is a powerful new training curriculum designed to enhance caregivers and foster parents’ understanding of how trauma affects children’s behavior. When caregivers are trauma informed, children develop deeper attachments and coping skills while experiencing fewer moves while in foster care. Child welfare agencies also benefit from the curriculum, gaining placement stability and a clear mechanism for engaging foster parents, kin and other caregivers as frontline practitioners. During TST-FC’s four interactive group sessions, facilitators guide caregivers through role playing, hands-on exercises and reflective conversations to learn about trauma and connect what has happened in a child’s life to their behavior. Foster parents and caregivers learn and practice skills such as de-escalating difficult behavior, helping a child regroup after a meltdown and recognizing when a child is being reminded of a past trauma. This workshop will also offer tools for self-care which are critical for the caregivers.
