Therapeutic Parenting with Relationship and Regulation
The Post Adoption Support Service (PASS) provides this parenting program specifically for adoptive parents. All children who have come in to families through adoption have experienced early trauma and attachment disruption. This can influence how they see themselves, the world, and the way they are parented. As a result, sometimes parents can feel that the way they are parenting is just not working with a child or young person, even though they have good parenting skills and have been doing everything ‘right’.
This program was developed in recognition that it is parents who are in the best position to help their children to heal from earlier experiences – you are with them every day and it is all the little interactions with those closest to them that may have the biggest impact. Yet parenting a child with a complex history can be challenging. This program will offer some new understandings about your child and yourself, help you understand your child’s perception of relationship and safety, and explores the support, skills and information you need to parent your child ‘therapeutically’.
