WHAT IS ARC?
ARC is designed to re-parent children and young people aged three to seventeen who have experienced multiple and/or prolonged trauma. Children and young people often present with severe psychological and behavioural issues which can lead to significant challenges for foster parents to fully integrate them into everyday life.
ARC is a Attachment, Regulation and Competency.
MA created the model from their experience of working with children with traumatic stress. Over a decade of experience they have put together the core aspects of trauma treatment that can be used in a wide variety of child care settings. As a result the ARC model is also being used by a number of Local Authorities in education, youth justice and fostering.
