This group is aimed at parents who have attended a therapeutic parenting course to provide ongoing opportunity to explore, reflect and develop their knowledge of therapeutic/reparative parenting.

The first half of the session focuses on children up to 11 years old, and second half on 12 year olds and above, to consider the different developmental needs and contexts.

Those with older teens may have more space if you attend after 11.30am.

The group also welcomes those parents that haven’t yet completed the course and would simply like to access some additional support.

It’s an open group and you are welcome to stay for all of it, or come to the group half that works best for your family. Refreshments are available; you may want to bring a snack or bit of lunch.
