With Care training – Mildura


This training explores the difference between therapeutic care and other existing models of residential care, with a focus on deepening participants’ understanding of the traumatic impact of abuse and neglect on the development of children and young people. Group discussion, exercises, activities and audio visual materials support the presentation of key theoretical models which provide frameworks for exploring how experiences of abuse and neglect impact on young peoples’ developmental pathways, intellectual and emotional functioning, attachment capacity and ability to form and maintain trusting relationships with adults delegated to care for them.

A key consideration is the integration of theory into practice and the importance of incorporating the knowledge of the therapeutic specialist into the Care Team and day to day planning and responses. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on “what does it mean for me to practice in this way?”

Learning Outcomes:

  • An understanding of healthy child and adolescent development.
  • The ability to reflect on how trauma and attachment theory applies to children and young people in care.
  • An understanding of the cultural aspects of trauma and attachment and their impact on the development of Aboriginal children, young people and their families and communities.
  • An understanding of a developmentally appropriate balance between empowerment and limit setting.
  • An understanding of organisational and learning culture and its impact on residential care.
  • Knowledge to think about systems theory and a framework to understand working across all levels of our own and others organisations.
