The Alannah and Madeline Foundation (AMF) are working to support early childhood educators who care for children impacted by trauma. The Early Years Trauma Consultancy Service (Early Years TraCS) aims to increase educators’ capability to effectively respond to children’s challenging behaviour and foster social-emotional competencies through comprehensive and ongoing support, customised to the unique needs of each setting.

MCHRI is partnering with AMF to examine the evidence-base that underpins the Early Years TraCS program using Intervention Mapping methodology as a descriptive tool, evaluate the outcomes and impact achieved as a result of the Early Years TraCS program, and co-develop an ongoing monitoring and evaluation framework to support the Foundation to identify program benefits in a rigorous and systematic manner.
