Trauma-Informed Practice Conference

23 Oct, 2019

On 25-26 September 2019, Family for Every Child worked with the International Centre for Therapeutic Care, which is a part of our member Mulberry Bush, and the Institute of Recovery from Childhood Trauma to put on a conference in Birmingham, UK.

Day 1 looked at the role of narrative in recovery with a presentation from care-experienced author Lisa Cherry, followed by short presentations then workshops from three practitioners on life story work, reflective practice and psychodrama through film-making. The day concluded with group reflection. Residential guests heard about Mulberry Bush’s ‘third space’, which comprises a major archive, and a screening of the powerful film about the Adverse Childhood Experiences study: RESILIENCE.

Day 2 looked at the evidence-base with presentations on Mulberry Bush’s model and research, a therapeutic foster care project, and from JUCONI on our global kinship care research and their model with case studies of kinship families. The day ended with a presentation on an exciting new tool to analyse children’s cases and improve outcomes, called BERRI.
