Therapeutic Parenting Beginner Level

This day is informed by the principles of DDP (Dan Hughes), nurturing attachments (Kim Golding) and non-violent resistance.

Attachment Theory may be the most important area of child development to help adopters and foster carers successfully care for the children and is based on the premise that infants are biologically predisposed to form attachment relationships from which they can experience security and comfort. The young child develops a range of attachment behaviours that are designed to keep the carer close. Some of these behaviours may be negative and it is this which creates disharmony within the adopter and carers home.

Therapeutic parenting is the most effective way to help children move on from these behaviours and towards a more regulated, healing and balanced way of being.

You will learn:

  • Introduction to attachment theory
  • Tracking and reducing the triggers for you and your child
  • Therapeutic Parenting
  • Helping a child belong
  • Mind mindedness and the internal working model
  • Shield of shame
  • Relationship play
  • Locus of control in you and your child
  • Managing the Behaviour
  • Letting old styles of behaviour management go
  • Developing rapport with your child
  • Timeholes

"As a relatively experienced adopter, many years in to a stressful journey, with a complex child, living with challenging, sometimes extreme behaviour, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. What could it do for me that the other numerous training courses, variety of groups and forums have failed to achieve over the years? I wondered if the course might be geared towards prospective or new adoptive parents, rather than the more battle weary amongst us. I could not have been more wrong! "
