Code: SGC/22/0683 Attachment, Trauma and Recovery

This workshop provides an opportunity to consider attachment theory; application and intervention; trauma theory; impact and assessment; and recovery planning and assessment. Designed with the specific aim of informing, engaging, and delivering an understanding of historical, biological, observational, cultural and neuroscience attachment…...the very core of what it is to be.
The day will set out attachment and trauma perspectives based on casework for child and family social workers, education, residential care professionals and family placement professionals, kinship and foster and adoption carers.
Drawing on child development and attachment theory the workshop will seek to assist attendees in assessing and developing attachment based interventions so that we have the professional language and the professional/personal skills and confidence in this key area of trauma recovery practice.

The workshop will be led by Richard Rose, Director of Child Trauma Intervention Services Ltd (CTIS) which seeks to engage with children affected by early life trauma and to help them achieve their full potential. Richard undertakes consultancy and training on Life Story Therapy and working with 'hard to reach' children and adolescents and develops academic training programmes in the UK and internationally. Prior to founding CTIS in 2011, Richard worked in the UK in local authority child protection and in the highly regarded residential therapeutic treatment agency SACCS, including four years as the Clinical Practice Director of the Mary Walsh Institute. Throughout his career, Richard has worked with children and their carers in out of home care and family placements, with the aim of enabling placements to become healthy and nurturing through enhanced understanding and attachment. He is the author of three books including Life Story Therapy: A new therapy for traumatised children – A model for practice, published in 2012 and Innovative Therapeutic Life Story Work 2017. He is an Adjunct Associate Professor of Social Work and Social Policy at La Trobe University.

The Purpose for the support groups

We realise that fostering can be really difficult at times. Perhaps the only people who really understand it are other foster carers and so therefore we want to give you a place to meet up.

There will be biscuits and/or cake, coffee, tea, and an opportunity for an informal chat at all of the meetings.

Although these will be informal meetings, each session will have a brief agenda, attendance list, and agreed group rules. This is to help those who don’t know anyone and feel awkward about coming along to a new meeting, to feel that they won’t be left alone on the side-lines.

Sometimes there will be speakers and topics as requested by the group, this will hopefully make it as relevant to your fostering as you like.

These sessions should be recorded on your Personal Development Plan (PDP).
