Narrative Model

This training will explore The Narrative Model used in therapeutic services and encourage foster carers toward using narrative ideas appropriately with the children they care for.

Entry into the care system is a challenging experience for children and young people. Children will likely experience feelings of loss and rejection in having to leave their home and birth family and furthermore have to make many adjustments with their new carers and those in the household. Therefore, they can be unclear about the reasons for coming into care and find it extremely challenging for them to know what to say about it.

This training will emphasise the importance of working together; foster carers, social workers, supervising social workers, birth family, etc. so we can help children settle into their new homes, they are better prepared for contact and more likely to engage with help offered by professionals.
