Diagrama Offers Free Advanced Foster Care Training

Specialised training for foster carers now available in London
Diagrama offers free training course for foster cares, fully funded by the National Lottery Community Fund

The Diagrama Foundation is running a new pilot course – Advanced Foster Care Training – Managing Complex Behaviour - to provide specialised training for foster carers. Fully funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, the course aims to reduce the number of placement breakdowns – by upskilling foster carers to manage some of the complex challenges they may face. The six-week course will run during school-friendly hours, from 10am -2pm (registration from 9.30am) on April 29/30 and May 7/13/20/21.

It will cover a variety of topics including:

• The impact of being in care
• Identity and transitions
• Expectations of behaviours
• Trauma impact (pre-birth and early childhood)
• Brain development
• Attachment and secure base
• Parenting traumatised children
• Non violent resistance therapy

Subject experts speakers will include NVR Practitioner Sarah Fisher and psychotherapist Julia Mikardo, further speakers to be confirmed. This course is open to registered foster carers and is limited to five places per agency, allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If your agency would like additional places, please get in touch. The course will be held at Room 3, Camberwell Library, 48 Camberwell Green, Camberwell, London SE5 7AL.

Participants will be expected to attend all six sessions to receive a course completion certificate in Advanced Foster Care - Managing Complex Behaviour. This course is limited to 20 places. However, we will be operating a waiting list, so please get in touch if you are interested. The Diagrama Foundation is a charity which supports vulnerable children and adults through a range of services including fostering, adoption and residential care.
