Unit 9 Caring for Carers

Guided Learning hours (GLH): 22
 
This Unit can be undertaken on a 'stand alone' basis from the Diploma in Therapeutic Parenting. It equips learners in recognising, managing and resolving compassion fatigue (blocked care) in parents and carers, (usually foster carers and adopters). Recent research carried out by The Hadley Centre, Bristol University, with Inspire Training Group (published November 2016) has highlighted the significant challenges presented to the fostering industry by the high levels of compassion fatigue experienced by foster carers. This leads to higher levels of placement disruption, and has a very significant impact on carer retention. 

This unit has been developed specifically for supporting professionals, and mentors by Inspire Training Group, in response to these challenges, and gives learners an excellent overview with solid strategies to overcome this debilitating problem. The course can be done exclusively online.

Objectives

The unit is divided in to 3 learning outcomes which the learner will need to achieve in order to complete this part of the course. 

Understand how to help therapeutic parents to identify compassion fatigue.  Learners will develop their knowledge of the main indicators of Compassion Fatigue and the contributory risk factors which carers may encounter leading to the onset on Compassion Fatigue. This empowers learners to confidently identify the need for support in a carer who are experiencing Compassion Fatigue.
 
Explore strategies used by supporting professionals  with carers experiencing compassion fatigue and the impact and effectiveness  of these strategies.  This part of the unit will develop knowledge and understanding of strategies used to  support carers with Compassion Fatigue. Learners will develop knowledge of ‘direct  working’ strategies, implementing the use of empathy with Foster Carers and also  emphasising the importance of understanding developmental trauma in children. They  will explore professional interventions and language which may further contribute to  Compassion Fatigue, and the role of blame in relation to Compassion Fatigue. The Learner will also outline ways in which professionals may involve extended family and  friends in supporting the foster carer to overcome Compassion Fatigue.
 
Recognise issues relating to the impact on the child, where compassion fatigue may be present.  The final part of the unit focuses on the support professionals can offer foster carers  who are experiencing compassion fatigue in order to ensure safeguarding standards  are met. Professionals will develop knowledge of Therapeutic models which may be  used in helping the Foster Carer to overcome Compassion Fatigue. It also gives  learners the opportunity to explore how interventions used by professionals to support  the carer, can have an impact on the child, emphasising positive outcomes from  overcoming Compassion Fatigue.
