Attachment-focused Parenting/Caregiving Course: Adopters and Foster Carers – Zoom

This course is aimed at adoptive parents and foster carers of children affected by trauma through adverse childhood experiences. It has attachment theory underpinning all topics. It is for families living in Berkshire or parents/carers of Berkshire children. There are limited spaces for non-Berkshire families.

This course would usually cost £250 per person. We are very grateful to The National Lottery Community Fund for providing funding to allow us to offer places at the massively reduced cost of £50 per person.

The course runs on Thursday mornings between 10am and 12pm on the following dates: 23 & 30 Sept, 7, 14 & 21 Oct, half term break, 4 & 11 Nov.

Topics covered include:

  • Impact of trauma on brain and body
  • Symptom overlap with ASD/ADHD
  • Attachment theory
  • Avoiding and managing stress
  • Understanding & managing behaviour
  • Life story work and answering difficult questions
  • Working effectively with schools
  • Secondary trauma to carers

The course will be facilitated by PSC specialist parenting practitioners Nuala Hemphill and Eleanor Greaves.
