Trauma-informed care and child resilience
We study the effects of trauma-informed psychoeducational interventions directed at caregivers, for instance foster parents and teachers in the school and preschool contexts. We evaluate effects on caregivers’ perceived self-efficacy, trauma knowledge, attitudes towards the child.
The aim is to identify important factors for child health and resilience, and support caregivers in promoting these factors. We interact closely with representatives from the participant groups during the entire research process, and listen to their input about the research.
The project is a collaboration with Save the Children Sweden, and funded by FORTE.
