I have had experience of your training before, and it was interesting and very well received. I do feel that there is a gap in what we offer our adopters and adopted children in terms of tackling deep-seated insecurities rooted in very early deprivation, and your training seeks to address this.
You present a combination of academic knowledge and research, together with your own personal experiences of adoption, in a way that dovetails well. Perhaps the fact that you are still living the journey makes things particularly vivid! There was an emphasis on practical techniques which was very encouraging for the adopters.
You held everyone’s attention well and I felt everyone was left in an energised and positive way. It helped that you were offering practical ways forward, as well as greater understanding.
Your use of your own personal experiences, past and present, makes the course very engaging.
Their response was very positive.
Easier than I had thought, with the new website!

"I was impressed by the way the Adoption Support course "Building Resilience"was structured and so easy to navigate. Gill is an excellent presenter. There was a wide range of relevant, experienced based content, delivered in an enthusiastic, caring, considered way. I enjoyed the activities and found them to be a great way of recapping on what I had learnt and adapting the strategies to suit my situation. I have learned many new ideas and found myself questioning my own feelings and behaviours"
