Daring to Care model is a group intervention developed to target specifically trauma-symptoms of parents surviving from childhood abuse.
Its goal is to prevent intergenerational harmful effects of traumatization by helping parents understand their trauma-related
difficulties and find better ways to regulate and cope with them.
Daring to Care is designed as an add-on to individual psychotherapeutic
treatment. The model consists of 24 topics presented over the course of
30 sessions, each with its own set of exercises and assignments to
encourage individual experiential reflection. The Daring to Care
intervention can be used for parents with different traumatic
experiences in their early care-taking relationships, varying trauma
symptoms, and children of different ages from birth to 18 years. The
Daring to Care model has been developed to address some of the specific difficulties that traumatized parents struggle with, in order to help
them break the intergenerational chain of maltreatment and neglect.
