    Learning that when a child begins life in an environment where his most basic needs are not meet adequately, the child is at risk of developing a range of mental health diagnosis, gives me an insight into the root of The issues i am dealing with as a Foster Carer

  3. Profile photo of David Kafui David Kafui says:

    Look for the message in a child's behaviour rather than focus solely on the behaviour.

    Recognise and positively re-inforce good behaviour always.
    Not just what you say but how you say it is very important - tone, volume and rate of speech have significant consequences in any scenario e.g. de-escalation situation
    Therapeutic care uses consequences that are logical and address presenting behaviour so that the child may take responsibility for their own actions.
    Behaviour management strategies should be discussed and agreed with all concerned

    I can apply these traits to my normal working life during meetings and phone call conversations.
    Try to stay clam, collective and focused on the situation in hand.
    Try to get both parties to work to a common goal.
    Make sure the sanction is relevant to the crime.

    A non aggressive stance is eye live, greater than a legs distance away and to once side of the child, never straight on.
    No matter how I feel when a child kicks off. I have to keep n calm, steady paced exterior with a calming slow voice.
    80-90% of Communication is non-verbal

  8. Profile photo of antoinette henry antoinette henry says:

    I believe I will be able to recognise a child's needs and meet them more effectively which will enable the bonding process to be positive and long lasting, I have more knowledge on being the provider, protector and guide to an individuals overall needs.
    If any situations arise I feel I will be able to deal with them more effectively form what I have learnt as I have more of an understanding of how a child may behave, why and how to manage situations e.g. I will be able to negotiate better when it comes to choices and consequences.
    I also have learnt how to react in a situation where an individual may become verbally aggressive or possibly violent, I know now that I would think before reacting.

    How to communicate effectively in a situation both verbally and non verbally
    Understanding and giving therapeutic care
    Recognising and understanding the needs of a child
