An 8 week specialist therapeutic parenting programme for adoptive parents. It is designed for all adopters, but particularly those who find themselves getting limited rewards from family life, feeling frequent stress or wanting to think about the parenting of their child. 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 suitable for those who are trying to improve their family life or just prevent things from getting any worse. It will also be of particular benefit to those who are contemplating, or are about to engage in, therapeutic intervention, providing a good grounding from which to start therapy. Adopters will need to have had a child placed for 6 months or more.
If you parent as a couple, we strongly advise that both parents attend. To facilitate this, we hold the same session twice in a week so that each parent can attend, 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.
Location: On this occasion, the course will take place virtually via Zoom for its duration. The programme will run twice a week to ensure it is easily accessible for all parents.
