Good record keeping provides an opportunity for healing for the adult that the child will become so that when they come to read their records, what has been written can support meaning making of the events that happened in childhood. In this session we will explore this approach by bringing together personal, academic and professional experiences and skills in a safe, reflective space.
This is for you if:
- You are responsible for record keeping for children
- You want the space to reflect and make sense of record keeping
- You are looking to develop a deeper theoretical understanding of the impact of reading files as an adult
- You are looking to develop a deeper embodied understanding of the impact of reading files as an adult
- You want to develop a trauma informed approach to record keeping
- You want to consider and embrace record keeping as having the potential for intergenerational and ancestral healing.
“This was a great opportunity to reflect on how language, phrasing and omissions in our records can impact the lives of people who use our services. Looking through a trauma lens at what and how we record has reinforced for me how vital it is to ensure we get it right from the beginning of our careers. Thanks for a thought-provoking morning, Lisa” Training participant.
