Healing Child Trauma Through Restorative Parenting: A Model for Supporting Children and Young People
by Dr Chris Robinson and Terry Philpot
Healing Child Trauma Through Restorative Parenting details how children can be helped to recover with the use of Restorative Parenting, an innovative model informed by psychological and neurological understanding of trauma and its effects. It explains the critical role that people, relationships and the environment play in a child’s recovery. It shows what constitutes a therapeutic environment, whereby a child experiences therapy not as one-to-one sessions but as a lived experience. The authors show how other components of the model – building therapeutic relationships, promoting positive education and encouraging clinically informed life style choices – are intimately linked, each critical to the re-parenting which the child undergoes.
This book will be welcomed by professionals working with children, including those in residential, health and foster care, psychology, education and health, as well as those commissioning services. The models, concepts and practices are transferable to public, private and charitable agencies.

WHY BIGGER IS OFTEN BETTER IN CHILDREN’S RESIDENTIAL CARE
Children coming into residential care are often unable to sustain the intensity of living in a small family unit. Larger homes can offer more opportunities to address the emotional, behavioural, social and developmental needs of every child, supporting their psychological wellbeing until they are able to move successfully into a family environment.
HELPING TRAUMATISED CHILDREN TO ACHIEVE PSYCHOLOGICAL WELLBEING
Children coming into residential care have usually experienced trauma and rejection. Whether they have been removed from biological parents or from adoptive or foster placements which have broken down, many will feel they have been abandoned.
HOW EDUCATION IS FUNDAMENTAL FOR CHILDREN TO RECOVER FROM ABUSE AND NEGLECT
For a child who has experienced abuse, neglect or loss, attending school is not only about learning in the educational sense – it is also regarded by Halliwell Homes as critical for their recovery. That is why schools are provided as an important part of its Restorative Parenting© programme
HOW RESTORATIVE PARENTING IS HELPING CHILDREN IN CARE RECOVER FROM TRAUMA
Suffering the trauma of abuse, loss or rejection severely impacts on a child’s ability to develop both socially and emotionally and therefore achieve their full potential.
