Back up the children

Trauma and its devastating consequences present pedagogues in different fields of work new challenges daily.

The statistics as well as our experience show, that violence towards a child committed by a family member, or violence witnessed by a child within their family, are the main reasons for traumatisation of children and also, mainly why they reach various helping institutions. When a child develops posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of traumatizing events, the child’s recovery often depends on the support that they receive from specialists in helping institutions. However, often the helpers themselves have only little knowledge about the specifics of trauma.

 

In order to improve the quality of support offered to traumatized children, to raise awareness and to further develop helpers' skills and knowledge, the project “Back up the Children” was launched with the financial support of the Daphne III program of the European Commission. Within the framework of this cooperation between six European countries (Germany, Estonia, France, Hungary, Portugal, Slovakia), a 30-minute training film (the text can be uploaded) and accompanying in-depth practical training materials were produced for professionals who have contact with traumatized children in their daily work.

 

The training materials offer information on the following topics:

  • a short history of PTSD
  • what PTSD is and how to recognize it in children
  • the impacts of traumatic experiences on the development of children
  • how to help traumatized children
  • how to support yourself and your colleagues and avoid professional burnout while working as helper.

 

Additional materials for trainers contain the following information:

  • possible training concepts
  • evaluation tools
