Attachment Focused Sleep Courses

Development trauma interferes with the formation of secure attachment. One of the ways this presents itself is through problems with going to and staying asleep. 

We offer sleep courses with trained sleep practitioners for parents/carers of adopted children, those living in foster/kinship care or in care homes. These cover the science of sleep, common reasons behind problems of night settling and night waking in children with development trauma and strategies for improving sleep habits. 

This is followed by bespoke one to one sleep clinics based on individual circumstances with the parent/carer and young person if appropriate.

Please get in touch to set up a one to one sleep clinic if you are experiencing problems with bedtime routines and/or sleep with your child.

All adults and secondary school age children are required to do a lateral flow test 48 hours prior to attending a PSC event, and test negative. Please note we will check your temperature on arrival.
