We are very excited to announce an eight-week evening therapeutic parenting course which will be facilitated by Jane Bowen, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapist and certified Theraplay Therapist.

This will start in May 2021, from 7.00pm – 9.30pm and will include two individual consultations at the beginning and the end of the course for each participant. The aims are to:

  • To help adoptive parents understand how early trauma and disrupted attachments affects the child’s developmental process.
  • To help adoptive parents reflect on how the child’s early history is enacted in the here and now and to increase their understanding of the meaning behind behaviours.
  • To enable adoptive parents to implement a therapeutic parenting approach to improve attunement and attachment.
  • To reflect on the child’s specific attachment difficulties how what this means for their parenting and their family life in general.
  • To enable parents to build confidence in using PACE by creating opportunities to practice therapeutic parenting in a supportive group environment.
  • To enable adoptive parents to reflect on their own attachment histories and how these impact on their own parenting.
  • To promote self-care and self-reflection for parents.

Funding for Therapeutic Parenting courses can be applied for via the Adoption Support Fund, subject to eligibility.
