What you will learn?  

This session will explore the journey of a looked after child through a trauma informed lens delivered by a lived experience leader.

Through engaging storytelling and interactive discussions, we'll uncover the impacts of parental loss and separation, inconsistent caregivers, and the absence of potential seeking adults on the surviving and developing child.

Learn how children who have experienced trauma navigate education, build healthy relationships, and develop a positive sense of self when practitioners provide psychological safety in all services children and young people encounter.

Learning Outcomes
  Understand the behaviours exhibited by children in care navigating "survival mode" and how trauma impacts their development.

  Recognise the effects of parental loss, inconsistent caregivers, and the absence of "potential-seeking adults" on children's outlooks.

  Identify powerful strategies to support looked-after children in education, building healthy relationships, and developing positive self-esteem.

 Learn how to create safe connections that foster healing throughout a child's journey in and out of care.

What our learners say about us  

Recognising the impact of unconscious bias has transformed my approach. Now, I see beyond the surface, understanding that a child's true essence extends far beyond what's written on paper.

I appreciated the emphasis on being mindful of the language we use, which can have a profound impact. I left the session with a renewed commitment to consider the words I use and their effect, both personally and professionally. I look forward to incorporating these insights into my practice

social worker
Attending this session was eye-opening. I learned how unconscious bias can affect our perception of children and how important it is to look beyond what's written about young people. The emphasis on not judging a book by its cover resonated deeply with me. I'm inspired to apply these insights to better support children in school and social work settings.
