New From Rise: Resources to Address Parent Trauma
Rise writers present at a NYC Children’s Services Learning Circle

Research has found that more than 50% of mothers with children in foster care meet the criteria for PTSD. In 2013-14, Rise writers made a series of public presentations about the impact of trauma on parenting and about effective interventions. Learn more on p. 10 of Rise’s 2014 Annual Report.

Rise’s “My Story, My Life” writing groups provide a safe place for young mothers who have grown up in foster care to reflect on their experiences and on their role as parents. Learn more on p. 12 of Rise’s 2014 Annual Report.


The Impact of Trauma on Parenting

Parents who have suffered trauma in their own childhoods want to give their children better lives, but the feelings of rage, shame, fear and hopelessness that so often come from trauma can get in the way. In this most-downloaded issue ever, parents write about how trauma has impacted them as parents, and offer insights into child welfare policies and practices that either cause more pain or support them in healing themselves and their children.


The Long Shadow of Foster Care

When children come home from foster care, parents hope they can leave the trauma of separation behind them. But for many families, separation casts a shadow for years to come. In this issue, parents describe the impact of removal long after reunification, and they ask: Is the child welfare system really doing its best to protect kids when removal itself is so traumatic?
