In the event of a child or young person being abused, carers need to be there to offer effective support to the very best of their ability. This course will look at the barriers to recovery for survivors of abuse, and how carers can work together to reduce trauma, prevent re-victimisation, and support improved health and wellbeing. The course will enable learners to understand how they can build resilience in children and young people, and sustain their recovery.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  1. To know how to provide safety to young people
  2. To know what a loving and caring environment looks like
  3. To understand the dangers of inbuilt victim blaming
  4. To be aware of the impact of trauma – understanding the various different levels of trauma and how the body reacts
  5. To understand why young people may have feelings for their abusers, and why they might want to return
  6. To know how the agency works to ensure the abuse doesn’t happen again
  7. To recognise what therapy works best for each young person
  8. To know about safe caring – as they process their feelings and the abuse
  9. To know how to plan for moving forward
  10. To recognise the individual and the individual needs
  11. To know how to support family through the trauma too

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
