SOUTH EASTERN TRUST

A workshop for Foster Carers

The aim of this workshop is to explore the confidence, skills and challenges of raising and exploring difficult topics with children & young people and dealing with the reaction that can follow.

When exploring the concerns we have with our children, we may not get the reaction we expect from them; blockage, resistance, avoidance, non-compliance can be all too common reactions.

Rising concerns and opening up conversations about our worries can prove a challenging task.

This half day training session aims to help participants:

  • Enhance their ability to approach difficult / sensitive conversations our children
  • Improve skills and strategies for engaging them in conversations
  • Help focus the conversation on the direction of change with a strengths based approach
  • Help reduce resistance and reluctance that can arise in these conversations
  • Explore our own attitudes towards sensitive/risk taking issues.
