Trauma is a hot topic in foster care and adoption, and for good reason. The vast majority of kids who were adopted at an older age or who have spent time in the foster care system have experienced some kind of trauma. However, trauma, and its impacts on children, isn’t always well understood by parents. This toolkit, which includes a video, facilitator guide, handouts, and resource guide looks at what neglect is, how it can impact children and how parents can determine if a behavior is based in trauma. Most importantly, we look at ways parents can help their children start healing from that early trauma.

  • How does trauma impact children?
  • How do you tell if a behavior is based in trauma?
  • How can parents help their children integrate the different identities that come from being adopted/in foster care?
  • How can parents use behavior charts to help change trauma-based behavior?
