Want to learn more about the PACE model when applied to caring for a child who is Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander?

This culturally informed trauma-attachment training will assist carers to explore the reasons behind challenging behaviours. It also introduces foster and kinship carers to a therapeutic approach to parenting called PACE (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy).

At this one day session you will learn;

  • The reasons why children in care present with challenging behaviours
  • Develop a culturally informed understanding of trauma and attachment
  • PACE parenting- An everyday parenting approach that actually works!
  • How to build strong healthy relationships with kids in your care and how to help them heal from trauma
  • How to respond to difficult behaviours
