Our library of podcast episodes, available here or through iTunes, includes topics from suggestions regarding facilitating the RPC to foster parent testimonials to creating foster parent support groups. In addition, facilitators also offer helpful metaphors they have discovered for explaining concepts about the effects of trauma, and relate their lessons learned as they implement the RPC. For example, in “Learning How to Swim,” one facilitator shares how she and her team built a trauma-informed parenting program from the ground up.
We’ve got room for many, many more podcast episodes. Do you have examples of what has worked for you when conducting workshops? As a resource parent, have you experienced some powerful turnarounds with your children using trauma-informed approaches that others may want to hear about? If you have ideas for podcast episodes that you may want to record and send to us, please contact us at email@example.com.
|Title||Building Resilience in Foster Youth|
|Summary||Resilience has become a popular concept, but what defines this quality in foster youth? According to Amnoni Myers, who grew up in the foster care system, and who now counsels foster youth as they transition out of the system, "resilience is knowing when you're falling and knowing how to catch yourself." So when her clients at Family Matters of Greater Washington in D.C. ask for her help, Myers understands they are demonstrating resilience. In this podcast with host J. Brian Houston, PhD, Director of the Disaster and Community Crisis Center at the University of Missouri, she discusses ways in which resource parents can help their foster youth build their own inner resilience. It's important to meet youth where they are, and to empower them to understand their own stories. Resource parents can function as listeners and learners and offer support and opportunities for growth. They can also remind their youth that "none of us makes it here alone," and that resource parents are part of the team to help them thrive and grow.|
