The masterclass, created for kinship carers, will be presented by Dr Karen Treisman, who is highly specialised in the areas of parenting, trauma, and attachment. She has experience of working with kinship carers and their children and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise.

The day will focus on some of the stresses and challenges of raising children who have experienced loss and trauma, and the importance of caring for yourself so you can care for them. This uplifting, energising and creative training will include looking at some of your own resiliencies, strengths, and skills, as well as giving you some take home self-care tools.

Those who attend this one-day masterclass will leave:


• with new skills and techniques to deal with challenging behaviours

• feeling more grounded, relaxed, and regulated to be able to respond to behaviours

• feeling better able to raise confident, happy and resilient kinship children

The day will also be a chance to meet other kinship carers and share experiences. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
