Kia Ora all
Winter is definitely here and I hope not too many of you are getting hit by colds and flus. Over the next month we will be holding a meeting for those interested in knowing more about the new changes around permanency for children in care from a lawyer who has been working with some of the cases. She was working for Oranga Tamariki, but is now a lawyer supporting carers. Dates and times to be confirmed soon.
- Do you want to find out more about the effect of trauma on the brain, so you can support and understand a child placed in your care?
- Do you know about the inside/outside age of your child and what this means to their development across the four areas of wellbeing (Te Whare Tapu Wha)
- How redeveloping trust can assist you as a caregiver?
To find out these and more come along to a training near you. Here is the Link to our training calendar.
