Before Adoption I was like fresh Playdoh!
I was vibrant, flexible, fresh smelling,fun to play with and full of possibility!!
After adoption I was like old playdoh: dull, hard, rigid, unresponsive, boring and.......I crumbled easily!
Stop crumbling like old Playdoh with our Building Resilience to Stress Less E-Course. Here is what one adopter had to say;
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, also what I would take away from the experience. 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! Yes there were some techniques and styles of approach that I recognised from the various adoption "Gurus” that we have dipped into over the years, but I found the whole experience very calming and therapeutic and the course totally exceeded my expectations.

Many adopters and foster carers (and people in general) don't think about stress management unless they're already on the verge of burnout. With our busy lives and coping with our child's trauma it doesn't always seem important to take on the practice of our own stress management until a worn-out body or an overly taxed psyche forces the issue. However, developing healthy stress relieving habits really does pay off in the long run. Not only does a regular stress management practice stave off the negative effects of stress, but it can also bring positive outcomes to adopters and foster carers such as more harmony in the home, great modelling for the children and better relationships and attachments.
People who report feeling stressed are 27 per cent more likely to suffer a heart attack
Stress raises blood pressure and levels of 'bad' cholesterol
It increases Weight gain and the likelihood of diabetes
Stress is Still Taboo In the workplace 2/3s of people wont admit to suffering it. It is still seen as a weakness. The chances are many adopters and foster carers are the same. BUT stress is a sign and symptom of being human!!

""Genuinely this really has helped me and my family.
I have been able to easily access the site, log on and follow on from where I left off. When I did have a problem I telephoned Gill who talked me through step by step. What a lovely lady.
When I initially printed off the work book my initial thought was “how may activities”?!!!
With nothing to lose I set to. Prepared, I pressed play. Gill was very easy to listen to, smiley, humorous and more importantly understanding and honest.
The course holistically is well thought out, the videos are not too long, the Activities are simple to follow with great prompts and for the sheer fact that I had to stop, sit down, relax and listen, was a joy and not a chore. ""
