WHO IS AUSTRALIAN CHILDHOOD FOUNDATION?
Australian Childhood Foundation was started over 30 years ago and works to prevent child abuse and reduce the harm it causes to children, families and the community. They provide specialist therapy and support to children all across Australia and are passionate advocates for defending childhood, ensuring all children are loved and safe.
THERAPEUTIC SENSORY DOLLS
The specialist dolls are used to help Australian Childhood Foundation counsellors explore the children’s senses and unlock the trauma held in their bodies. The dolls give children the chance to connect again with imagination and play to help them heal and recover.
At the Foundation, research has shown significant improvements in the functioning of children who have used the therapeutic dolls. All the children have reported an increased sense of being able to manage their stress levels across home, school and in social situations.
