Transitioning children between families is a difficult and challenging task, often causing our most vulnerable children to experience further trauma. By creating a team around the child, using the same language, and focusing on the same approach, we can work together to help children navigate the changes, the losses, and the dysregulation that accompanies transitions.
1. Develop an understanding of the gap between reality and expectation during transitioning
2. Explore how to build a team around the child while recognizing the emotional journey for all parties
3. Increase understanding and application of bottom-up brain regulation strategies
