Whose problem is this?

Whose problem is this? is a training module designed to enhance carers' understanding of and ability to respond effectively to challenging behaviours.

It is a module of the Real kids, real carers education resource developed by the Association of Children's Welfare Agencies (ACWA) and can be downloaded free-of-charge from that website. As well as Whose problem is this?, Real Kids, real carers offers a series of training booklets covering a range of topes of importance to foster and kinship carers.

This training module may be conducted either one-on-one or in a small group.

  • Within each module there are instructions for the trainer about how to conduct the training. The remaining pages are handouts and should be copied and distributed to participants.
  • In order to assess that each participant has completed the training to a satisfactory standard, the trainer or other approved support worker should consult the learning outcomes identified within the module booklet.
