Jannie’s Story: Trauma & Re-enactment
This highly acclaimed dramatisation of one child’s experience of being traumatised whilst in the care of her mentally ill and alcoholic birth mother is widely used in training to explore with adoptive parents and carers:
- how it feels to be traumatised
- how this is internalised
- how trauma is re-enacted
The script is based on the lives of many of the children who have come to Family Futures for therapeutic support.
