Reparitive Parenting Program

REPARATIVE PARENTING ?
GROUP PROGRAM FOR FOSTER AND KINSHIP CARERS OF CHILDREN WITH CHALLENGING EMOTIONAL AND BEHAVIOURAL NEEDS
Term 1 2013, Cranebrook

An attachment based program that seeks to help foster and kinship carers learn reparative parenting not just behaviour management. It aims to increase the understanding, skills and resources of carers in order to increase placement stability. Placement stability is associated with a range of positive mental health, behavioural and educational outcomes for children and young people in care.

The program sessions are designed around building a house of therapeutic care and will include:
• Understanding the impact of trauma and attachment difficulties.
• Skills in building a firm relationship foundation with your child such as “special play” and emotion coaching.
• Developing safety plans and plans to look after yourself.
• Problem solving techniques and strategies to optimise compliance.
• Using limits to manage anxiety.
• Relationship repair with your foster child.
