Trauma Triggered Behaviour in Looked After and Adopted Children is suitable for foster carers, social workers, teachers and adopters; delivered by Bubble Wrapped Children author Helen Oakwater, founder of FAB Parents
This interactive, dynamic workshop demonstrates how the legacy of maltreatment and neglect frequently prevents children from growing up ’normally’ and shows why therapeutic reparenting and truth telling is essential for fostered and adopted children.
The day weaves together data on trauma, brain functioning, sensory memories, parenting strategies and child development with practical strategies and behaviour management tools. Discussions and small group exercises throughout the day ensure a ‘learn by doing’ experience. Although the day is packed with information, it’s not a lecture. Please bring curiosity, an open mind and a sense of humour.
Benefits of attending
- Leave with a clear picture of how childhood maltreatment and neglect impacts brain functioning and is outside our conscious control.This knowledge makes sense of apparently ‘nonsensical’ behaviour.
- Tools for transformation. Leave with several, new, simple step by step strategies to control your own reactions and calmly manage children’s highly challenging, emotionally charged behaviour.
- Empower you and the child to understand how their traumatic past links to their present behaviour and influences their future life
- A fresh perspective on contact and social media intrusions.
- A graphic model of child development and consequences of gaps.

Amazing what you can organise via twitter. One tweet from Helen on Wednesday 28th September while basking in the glow of delivering a keynote in Finland ... and less than 48 hours later we have a venue and a training event. This is the plus side of technology.
