Essex Council integrate new therapeutic training programme as way of helping children in care

Posted on: January 14, 2021

Essex County Council are integrating a new trauma informed therapeutic training programme as a way of renewing their commitment to securing the best outcomes for children in care.

The training will be available to anyone who may come into contact with a child in care – giving them a ‘trauma lens’ to better understand their experiences and how they can support them. Essex County Council have adapted quickly to the challenges of Covid-19 with the training sessions being switched to online delivery.

The programme has been developed due to the overwhelming evidence that the outcomes for children who have suffered trauma are much better if they live with families and are parented in a trauma informed way.

Fostering can be transformational for children who have experienced a traumatic upbringing but it can be just as life changing for the foster carers themselves.
