Trauma-Informed Peer Support for Caregivers

Provided by the Association for Treatment and Training in the Attachment of Children (ATTACh)

Trauma-Informed Peer Support is a program that offers additional support to caregivers struggling with the challenges of parenting high needs children. Often these children are at risk of disruption from their foster or adoptive placement. While research demonstrates the positive impact of connecting foster parents with foster and adoptive parent peers, limited opportunities for training, support, and peer connection exist.  By offering a support group opportunity via teleconference and/or web-conferencing modalities, caregivers can receive peer support while in their home, workplace, or whatever location is convenient for them. Centene contracts with ATTACh which provides peer support by caregivers who are trained in trauma-informed care and have experience in fostering and/or adopting children through the child welfare system.
