Supporting children who have experienced family violence – Centre for Non Violence
Monday May 29, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The training is designed for case managers and others working closely with children and their families to support collaboration with parents to meet the stability, development and safety needs of children – so they can thrive! We cover ages and stages of development, how to notice the signs of trauma, working with parents / carers to support relationship building & how to support optimal wellbeing and development. This training incorporates a child focus in Practice, a trauma informed approach and the training is aligned with MARAM framework.
This workshop provides participants with an opportunity to review the foundational knowledge of child development/ well-being and identify the impacts of family violence. We will explore how participants can integrate a child focused, trauma informed approach into their own practice with children, their parents/carers and families to support optimal wellbeing and development.
By the end of this session, you will:
- Have a greater understanding of Child Development, for children & young people
- Be able to identify the impacts of trauma on children, their carers and on relationships (the effects of trauma on attachment and bonding), including understanding the effects of family violence on children and parents.
- Have a toolbox of strategies for supporting relationship recovery, healing for children and their carers/parents. Strategies are aligned with a child focused & trauma informed approach and align with frameworks such and MARAM. There is an emphasis on play, joy and connection – healing for children & young people often occurs in the context of feeling safe in their relationships.
- Feel more confident in your ability to build positive rapport with parents/carers, Children and Young People to support them in their recovery from family violence – in a non-blaming way that places responsibility with the adult who used violence & help them build strong relationships and support the ongoing wellbeing & development for themselves and their children
