When the abused children are put into the protective placement system, we discovered that the majority showed the symptoms of trauma, both physically and psychologically. Some displayed signs of serious slow development in language, body, and cognition; some have adjustment disorder issues in behavior, learning, and emotions. All these problems need to be addressed through treatment or learning materials so the children have a chance to recover and develop healthily.
Most children in the community children's homes are under the age of 6. Many children have suffered from severe trauma and often get delay development. Therefore, we need to provide sufficient resources and game therapy equipment for caregivers to take care of children, including: appease, creative, capacity building, and simulate toys, etc. With these materials, the caregivers are able to provide children proper treatments immediately to deal with the children's traumatic stress reactions.
1. Setting a game room: providing children psychological treatment with game therapy, rebuilding their sense of security and good attachment, and promoting their mental health development. 2. Establishing a recording and monitoring system: Strengthening the safety of treatment space; building private space for children's psychotherapy. 3. Using game therapy equipment: assisting children to re-construct the connection between people and themselves and others and learning emotional management.
This service is expected to provide professional psychological treatment services for spiritual healing, rebuilding self-confidence and sense of security of 5 severely abused children. In addition, it is also expected to hold 4 game treatment seminars for caregivers and social workers, 15 persons participate in each seminar, total serve 60 times of persons. In 2020, it is expected to serve 119 children in the community and the beneficiaries will be 240 persons.
