The Invisible Suitcase: What It Is and Why Does It Matter?
Children in foster care can exhibit challenging behavior that’s difficult to manage at times. Many of the children who come into foster care bring with them a history of experiencing trauma. But did you know that they also bring beliefs about themselves, caregivers, and the world, as a result of the trauma they have experienced? In part one of the Invisible Suitcase two-part interactive lessons, you will learn about the beliefs that children often bring into their foster homes and how these beliefs are connected to their challenging, and at times puzzling, behavior. The narrator, Henry, will walk you through how a child’s experiences help form their beliefs, and in turn, how these beliefs are connected to the way they behave.
The second part of the Online Module Invisible Suitcase is scheduled to be posted after Thanksgiving.
