Trauma Informed Care
As soon as a child has to be removed from the care of biological parents and placed in the foster care system, we acknowledge that there is clear trauma from that experience, and from past experiences the child has gone through leading up to that event.
We are setting an example to other provincial agencies and SOS Children’s Villages around the world when it comes to recognizing trauma that children have experienced, how it affects their behaviour, and therapeutic methods that are informed by trauma knowledge. We don’t assume to know what’s best for a client, we meet each person where they’re at, by creating a safe environment and working together through the healing process.
The 4 pillars of the trauma informed therapy and programs we provide include the following.
