Therapeutic Foster Care

The brain's capacity to create a filing system of associations of ‘patterns of neural activity’ is mind blowing. Triggers, such as a bath running, i.e., when a child or young person has been held under water, will cause an ‘increase in physiological reactivity, distress, fear, and other symptoms’, as the brain associates the incoming sensory signals with the past THREAT.  The child or young person’s brain, beyond conscious awareness, has stored a set of neutral cues, such as the running water, with an association to THREAT (Perry, 2006). Connect B4 Correct use a mindful based therapeutic model of care that can begin to break these associations by repetitive and compassionate care and building new files, new ‘Clusters’ of association so that eventually and with patience the THREAT member can be dispelled.
