eLearning: Unconscious Bias

Biases are inclinations that people hold towards a particular idea, individual, group or belief. They can cause us to act favourably or unfavourably towards groups of people based on characteristics that we perceive them to possess. Unconscious bias is not intentional but it can affect everyday decisions and interactions.

Compassion Fatigue Training

It is not hard to imagine how demanding caring for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, trauma and loss must be. The complex needs of these children require workers to have robust mental health and well-being.

It is not surprising then that foster carers are at risk of Compassion Fatigue. Compassion Fatigue is generally defined as a state of emotional and physical burnout combined with secondary traumatic stress. It can be exacerbated further when carers are not told about the exact abuse, trauma and neglect a particular child may have experienced, and the full spectrum of their c ...
