Tom Hallmark and Zoe Lattimer join John and Edwina in today's episode to discuss the impact of change and transitions for children and young people who are in care.
Change can be difficult for this cohort. This is because children who have experienced early trauma and unhealthy attachments do not know that change is OK; being able to know that change is OK can only come when you have a secure basis to place that on.
Transition is not just about the major changes that occur in phases throughout life. There are many transitions which occur in a typical day. For example, from one task to another; moving from one room to another; from home to school/college and back again; inside to outside; classroom to break time.
