Event description


The program is run over nine 3-hour sessions run fortnightly, with a further one follow-up session. This training will be conducted in the Maitland area. A venue will be confirmed closer to the start date.

The program sessions are designed around building a house of therapeutic care and will include:

  • Understanding the impact of trauma and attachment difficulties.
  • Skills in building a firm relationship foundation with your child such as “special play” and emotion coaching.
  • Developing safety plans and plans to look after you.
  • Problem solving techniques and strategies to optimise compliance.
  • Using limits to manage anxiety.
  • Relationship repair.

Who is eligible to attend?

  • The course is aimed specifically at the foster and kinship carers of children and young people with challenging emotional and behavioural needs.
  • You must have at least one child who is in a placement with you under a long term care order.
  • It is NOT a one-off workshop; it is a cohesive treatment program for carers dealing with difficulties and particularly placements at risk of breakdown.
  • It requires attendance, preferably by both carers in the home, for most of the sessions. It is not purely training and education.

What does it cost?

  • The course is free and morning tea will be provided.

What if I need childcare?

  • Please indicate as early as possible if you require assistance with child minding to attend this training. We will attempt to help you find a way to meet this need but we cannot guarantee provision of the type of care you may require.
