CHILDREN IN CARE HAVE EXPERIENCED TRAUMA
And so have some of the Caregivers...
Yesterday and today we are offering training at Dayspring to 16 participants - on Understanding and Working With Children Who Have Experienced Trauma.
|Jayne Schooler leading the group.|
Understanding the Impact of Trauma
TRAUMA IS SO PREVALANT
Even workers find they are so overwhelmed at times when they begin looking at how they can help children - protect them and help them feel safe - when looking at their own past some begin to remember no one protected them.
EVEN TODAY WE RECEIVED AN EMAIL SAYING JUST THIS
"thank you so much, but you have touched my own wounds..."
WHICH CONFIRMS...Training is central to the work of LAMb International….preparing nationals to carry on and work with children and families using skills and knowledge that strengthen families and keep children safe and in families.
Trauma training has proven to be a critical component in helping nationals work with children who have been abused, neglected, abandoned or otherwise exploited.
This is the fourth group we have conducted the Trauma training with in Kyrgyzstan; an orphanage in Karakol, SOS Villages in Bishkek, local persons in Tokmok and this week with persons from different orphanages, and social services from Tokmok.
Saturday we will conduct the training once again in Bishkek – with the church Renewal. Here they have many national families who have adopted children and more who want to adopt.
We are so excited about this material – developed by Pastor David and Jayne Schooler. We are getting requests to offer this in many places and ask your prayers for wisdom and discernment in our responses.
