An 8 week specialist therapeutic programme for adoptive parents. It is designed for adopters who find themselves unable to experience family life in the way that they had hoped. You may be finding limited rewards, frequent stress and feelings of being lost with the child you are living with. The programme will focus on the 8 habits of the thriving adoptive family and provide strategies on how to embed these into your daily family life. The programme will enhance your family’s existing knowledge and enable reflection on the emotional journey that adoption brings.
This programme will be of particular benefit to those who are contemplating, or are about to engage in, therapeutic intervention. Adopters will need to have had a child placed for 6 months or more.
If you parent as a couple, we strongly advice that both parents attend. To facilitate this we will hold both a morning session and an evening session, so both can attend one or the other of the times, either separately or together. We would expect that people commit to attending all of the eight sessions. There will be a maximum of 12 attendees at each session.
