Caring for children and young people with trauma


This is the registration page for the Caring for Children and Young People with trauma course.  These two courses are for (1) foster carers and (2) kinship carers working within the South Australia region.  The program is made up of a series of 4 online modules.  Each module takes between 45 and 90 minutes to complete and we suggest breaking up your completion of the whole program.

Carers who are currently live in South Australia will be able to register for this course by completing the details below. Once registered, you will have access to the online course immediately.

This training has been developed by the Centre for Excellence in Therapeutic Care (CETC) in partnership with the Government of South Australia, Department for Child Protection. 

The Department for Child Protection (DCP) values and respects the vital contribution of foster and kinship carers in supporting children to grow, develop and reach their full potential.  This trauma informed learning and development opportunity reflects the commitment of DCP to ensuring that carers are informed and supported, consistent with the Statement of Commitment for South Australian Foster and Kinship Carers.
