Tuning into Trauma and Attachment is a collaborative project offered in partnership with Family and Children’s Service of Waterloo Region. It is a multipronged initiative that adapts existing child welfare placement services (Family Centred Planning, Attachment Consultations, in home interventions) to create an attachment and trauma informed service plan to address the needs of children and caregivers. This service is specifically for bio and foster/kin/adoptive families.
KW Counselling Services plays a coordinating role in this innovative project. Additionally, they are responsible for offering Trauma and Attachment groups as well as individual and dyadic counselling interventions to bio and foster/kin/adoptive families. Counselling goals are often created collaboratively with F&CS case workers and clients to address specific needs in order to support and strengthen the resiliency of family systems.
This project in partnership with Wilfrid Laurier University is supported by research designed to increase the uptake of evidence based practice in the child welfare sector.
