Impact Therapeutic program’s goal is to strengthen the protective factors in each child’s life and minimise the long term harm that may be caused by their experiences of complex trauma.

The aim is to systematically build each child’s resilience. Resilience is not a static condition. For Impact’s children, it will grow from:

  • feeling safe in their living environment

  • being able to manage emotions and regain their equilibrium when upset

  • having a sense of self efficacy based on their increasing competencies

  • a capacity to sustain positive interpersonal relationships

  • a positive self image

  • a sense of belonging and social connectedness.
