New Foster Care Course


Using our expertise in working with traumatised children and young people Orb8 has written and is delivering an extended training in working therapeutically with hard to reach children and young people. The course is delivered over 12 sessions and incudes a reflective practice group, theoretical input including trauma, attachment, neurodevelopment, resilience and loss and therapeutic skills session on using relational and reflective practice. We are already working in the independent sector and with local authorities and are looking for other partners who would be interested in developing carer knowledge, skills and practice aimed at enhancing placement stability and promoting the best interests of our most vulnerable children and young people. We can flex the course to meet your own organisations, carers and staff group needs including provision to other sectors and groups such as residential care, health and education. For more information on our Introduction to Therapeutic Caring Course please see our flyer Training information doc foster care May 2018
