Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma: A Workshop for Resource Parents

This workshop is a PowerPoint-based training designed to be taught by a mental health professional and foster parent as co-facilitators to provide a comprehensive curriculum on child trauma for resource parents (foster parents and kinship care givers). It includes nine case studies of representative foster children from the ages of eight months to 15 years, as well as cases of secondary traumatic stress in parents. Participants will learn how trauma affects the children in their care, and gain practical tools for supporting their children. (2010)
