Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

The Alannah and Madeline Foundation are working to support early childhood educators who care for children impacted by trauma. The Early Years Trauma Consultancy Service (Early Years TraCS) aims to increase educators’ capability to effectively respond to children’s challenging behaviour and foster social-emotional competencies through comprehensive and ongoing support. Early Years TraCS consultants collaborate with educators to customise the service to the unique needs of each setting. The program has been developed based on theory and program logic, and is currently available through the Department of Education and Training’s School Readiness Funding menu. This document provides a brief overview of a potential partnership between the Alannah and Madeline Foundation and the Monash Centre for Health Research and Implementation (MCHRI) to support the Foundation to build a robust evidence base for the Early Years TraCS program.
