Caring for children who have been sexually abused is demanding and challenging, and foster carers cannot be left to manage this alone. This course will enable carers to establish effective partnerships with young people, providing them with information they can understand and use and arranging for practical parenting support that directly relates to the needs of these children.
The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:
- Gain greater awareness of up to date definitions of sexual abuse in an electronic age
- Develop a greater understanding of a sexually abused child's experience in the context of her/his wider life
- Identify the continuing care needs of children
- Plan ways of building on the child's strengths and increasing self-esteem in light of abuse
There is no charge to attend these courses, however a cancellation charge may apply to non-attendance if sufficient notice is not given
