Connected Classrooms that CARE: Supporting children recovering from a tough start to life in an era of COVID-19

In this, my third major release during this COVID-19 period, I have turned my mind to the support of children and young people who are recovering from a tough start to life at school.

Written for teachers and other education personnel who interact with these children in a care and management role, this 51-page resource is packed with information and reflections that support the development and implementation of a therapeutic CARE Plan and optimal functioning at school.

Drawn from the Triple-A Model of Therapeutic Care and the CARE Curriculum, this resource offers both what teachers and other education personnel need to know and do in support of maintaining a trauma-sensitive and responsive school and classroom, and consistency with therapeutic endeavours in the home.

The resource is available to download here. Alternatively, you can pay/donate via the button below. All money raised supports my capacity to continue to provide practical and user-friendly resources in support of children and young people’s recovery from a tough start to life.
