Hello and thank you for your interest in this special offer for members and followers of Kinship Friendship.

I am pleased to be able to offer the following resources for implementing trauma-informed, therapeutic care in the home and school settings at the special price of £5.00 per resource.

This special offer is open to individual kinship carers. If you are a representative of an organisation or practitioner who provides services to kinship carers and/or children in out-of-home care, please click here (resource for home) or here (resource for school) for purchase options.

After reading the resource you will:

  • have a framework for understanding the impact of trauma at home on the developing child;
  • be able to develop and implement a plan to support the child’s recovery based on familiar aspects of caregiving and relating;
  • be able to problem-solve in relation to ongoing behaviours of concern and implement practical steps to address them; and
  • be able develop and implement a practical self-care plan that supports your best efforts on behalf of children and young people who have experienced trauma at home, and positive outcomes for them.

Most importantly, you will have the knowledge and tools available to support a strong, healing connection with the child in your care who experienced trauma at home.

Further, used with the complementary resource for schools, the opportunity exists for an enriched collaborative approach and partnership between home and school in support of positive outcomes for the child or children in your care.

About me:

Colby Pearce - Attachment

I am a Clinical Psychologist with almost thirty-years-experience as an applied researcher, clinician, writer and trainer in child and adolescent mental health and child welfare. For almost all my working life I have offered professional services to children and young people who have experienced trauma at home, and adults who interact with them in various roles (including parents, foster carers, kinship carers, residential carers, adoptive parents, teachers, social workers, youth workers, and judicial officers).  I am the author of the Triple-A Model of Therapeutic Care, which is entering its fourth year as the primary therapeutic model of care among TUSLA (Child and Family Agency) general and relative foster carers in County Donegal, Ireland. I am also the author of the CARE Therapeutic Framework, which is currently being implemented in the Department for Child Protection (DCP) Kinship Care Program in South Australia.

Though there is no shortage of information that describes the impact of trauma at home on the developing child, this knowledge either does not translate well into practical and feasible care and management practices or there is an apparent reluctance to deviate from widely-implemented, conventional care and management practices. This led me to develop practical, user-friendly and back-to-basics approaches for the care and management of these deeply hurt and, often, troubled children that are confined to conventional aspects of caregiving and relating and address the impacts of, and support recovery from, trauma at home.
