A practical resource supporting trauma-informed practice at school

NB – It is here – see below – along with a further resource supporting trauma informed, therapeutic parenting in the home!

I am very pleased to announce that in association with the successful implementation of the Triple-A Model of Therapeutic CARE in TUSLA’s alternate care service in Donegal, Ireland, and the CARE Therapeutic Framework in the Kinship Care Program in South Australia, I have developed a complementary resource for trauma-informed practice in schools.

The resource incorporates both the Triple-A Model of Therapeutic Care and the CARE Therapeutic Framework in to an accessible and readily implemented approach to the care and management of children who have experienced trauma at home.

Trauma-Informed Care
Trauma-Informed Practice
Therapeutic Models of Care

It is my intention that the resource will facilitate common knowledge, common language and a common approach between school, home and support services in relation to hurt and troubled children.

Children need consistency
Why consistency is important

By supporting consistency of approach, the impact of endeavours to promote recovery from trauma at home is enhanced, and the undermining effect of inconsistency of approach between home and school safeguarded against.

After reading this resource teachers and other professionals in schools can expect to have a conceptual framework for understanding the impact of trauma at home on the developing child and be able to develop and implement a plan to support their recovery based on familiar aspects of caregiving and relating. They will also be able to problem-solve in relation to ongoing challenging behaviour the child who has experienced trauma at home may be exhibiting and implement practical steps to address it. Further they will be able develop and implement and practical self-care plan that supports their best efforts on behalf of children who have experienced trauma at home, and positive outcomes for the children.

The resource will be available to purchase and download via this site and securestart.com.au very soon. I recommend that you check back regularly to ensure that you do not miss out on the special introductory price.
