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

This 7 week course is aimed at Berkshire adoptive parents and foster carers of children affected by trauma through adverse childhood experiences. It has attachment theory underpinning all topics. We have a limited number of tickets available 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 Friday mornings between 10am and 12pm on the following dates: 21 and 28 May, break for half term, 11, 18 and 25 June, 2 and 9 July.

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 Lynne Blencowe and Nuala Hemphill.
