Adoptive or foster parents often believe they have failed and blame themselves for their child's violent or aggressive behaviour. It's important that professionals are 'trauma aware' and do not reinforce these feelings. Edwina Grant talks to Christine Gordon and Karen Wallace of Adapt Scotland about caring for those who care for children who exhibit violent or aggressive behaviour. They explore the reasons for these behaviours, the impact on family life and coping strategies.
This discussion is based on a paper Violent and aggressive children by Christine Gordon and Karen Wallace published in Research Unbound.
