Wrapped in Angels


This is an ACWA endorsed CPD program offered by Cara House.

This three-day training program is an experiential based practice paradigm. Participants will learn theoretical underpinnings (resilience, trauma and attachment) and partake in the journey of making a blanket themselves.

Wrapped in Angels is a journey of resilience that explores what has sustained and nourished children and families when facing abuse, violence and trauma. This is done by making an Angel Blanket. The symbols of family, friends, pets, places, and events sewn onto fabric: a colourful representation of a safety net.

The blanket is a tangible object to be wrapped in, to bring closer strengths, protection, connections and relationships. It can warm and comfort with its touch and it can hold memories sewn on to its fabric. It helps children remember and keep remembering all that may be lost through a damaged net: death, removal from family of origin or some form of abuse or trauma, or all that may be present but still needs to be drawn closer.
